About Stars in their Cars

Paddy McGuinness. Celebrities. And driving. What more could you want? Sending Stars on the ultimate road trip – going back in time to drive the cars from their past.

Paddy will take well-known celebrity guests including Jodie Kidd, Neil Morrissey, John Prescott and Ross Noble on a nostalgic drive down memory lane, reuniting them with three beloved cars from their past. Crossing the country, they will track down old friends and reminisce about the quirks of driving each vehicle. From the humble Vauxhall Chevette to the boy racer Capri and the cutting-edge Austin Princess, these iconic cars are the stars of the show and will provide fascinating insight in to the lives of each celebrity.
