In the episode of Top Gear, Paddy McGuiness, Freddie Flintoff and Chris Harris take on various trucking challenges before finally becoming fully qualified truck drivers. The trio then embark on an exciting journey across the UK to reach their final destination in Wales.
However, before passing all the necessary truck tests, including the theory and the practical, sentimental, McGuiness reveals that his father was a truck driver.
Flintoff is also heard to ask McGuiness if he has ever driven a truck, to which McGuiness replies that he has only driven a “dump truck”.
McGuiness goes on to say, “I think everyone growing up wants to drive a truck.”
What viewers will probably find most surprising, however, is the fact that McGuiness says driving a truck is better than driving a £4 million sports car.

At that point, the presenters are completely unaware of the cargo they are carrying.
It is kept as a surprise until almost the end of the episode.
Harris, McGuiness, and Flintoff all seem to agree that trucking is a “more mature world” than driving.
As the episode progresses, they face several challenges, including high winds on the Severn Bridge as they enter Wales and multiple tight turns.
The episode highlighted the fact that, despite being seen as extremely cool, trucking comes with a huge responsibility.
Truckers are not only responsible for their own safety, but also for the safety of other much more vulnerable road users.
The final episode of Top Gear will air on BBC One on Sunday 19 June at 8pm.
