It is the show’s first festive special since Jeremy Clarkson, Richard Hammond and James May went to Patagonia in 2014.

There, they infuriated locals by driving around with the number plate H982 FKL, a reference to the Falklands War of 1982.

BBC Two controller Patrick Holland said: “Top Gear has come back with a real bang and we couldn’t be happier with how the audience is responding.

“This Christmas we’ll have a special adventure which promises to be epic and gruelling in true Top Gear style.”
