Top Gear stars Jeremy Clarkson and Richard Hammond spotted in Exton

CELEBRITY spotters in Exton were surprised to see two very familiar faces in the village on Wednesday.

Top Gear presenters Jeremy Clarkson and Richard Hammond stopped by the Fox and Hounds pub in the village to do some filming for the new series of the popular BBC programme. They were filming at Exton Park throughout the rest of the day.

Chef at the Fox and Hounds Ben Young, 26, of The Sidings, Oakham, said: “We did breakfast for the BBC crew this morning and I was hoping they would come to the pub.

“When I saw Jeremy Clarkson getting out of the car in front of the pub I was completely star struck. He is my idol.”
