Normally, when the guys from Top Gear get issued a challenge, something gets destroyed. Series 21 of the long-running motoring show is no exception. In episode one, early last month, series hosts Jeremy Clarkson, Richard Hammond and James May drive their 1980’s hatchbacks around a specially designed course in the aisles of a supermarket, to see who can get round the quickest in Supermarket Sweep in Hatchbacks.
The setting for Top Gear‘s decadent challenge was Valco, the specially-built supermarket set for the Sky television series, Trollied. Sadly, the fake supermarket located at The Bottle Yard Studios in Bristol came out the worse for wear in the high-profile challenge segment.
Fortunately, it didn’t look like the damage was too severe and ‘Valco’ should be ready for the forthcoming filming of series 4 of Trollied, starring Jason Watkins, Jane Horrocks and Mark Addy, which was just commissioned by Sky Head of Comedy, Lucy Lumsden.
