Top Gear fans spot hilarious error in old episode: ‘That couldn’t be by accident’ 1

The BBC show was previously hosted by Jeremy Clarkson, Richard Hammond and James May before the trio moved over to Amazon for their current venture – The Grand Tour. Now, fans have been going through some older episodes of the show and spotted something which appeared to be an error, leading them to question whether it was an accident or in fact done on purpose.


Richard, Jeremy and James hosted the BBC show for thirteen years and it quickly became one of the most popular offerings on BBC Two. 

The hosts travelled across the world, showcasing some of the most desirable vehicles and became much-loved presenters nationwide.

However, they were also known for their mischief and regularly pulled pranks on each other whilst on set. 

Now, one Reddit user has spotted a theme throughout some old episodes which got many pointing out other parts of the show with similar errors.

During the show’s 2016 Christmas special, the hosts played a game of dress-up, much to the amusement of their studio audience. 

Richard told the guests: “Look, we realised branding stuff – there’s some money in it. So we thought from Scandinavia, we would launch our own brand of car-branded Christmas jumpers.”

The stars got changed and quickly revealed their prank to the live audience after they had all returned in their new looks. 

Richard said: “Mine, is the very simple, very warm turtleneck bearing the name of a legend on the front – I know, it’s very special.”

As James joined him with a sweater featuring the Nissan logo, he added: “As you can see, I have gone for the name of a car I absolutely adore.”
