It was a joke, geddit?

BBC admit Top Gear caravan blaze was a stunt too
The BBC has admitted that a scene in its hit show Top Gear apparently showing an accidental caravan fire had been faked. The episode showed presenters Jeremy Clarkson, Richard Hammond and James May taking the caravan on a trip to Dorset, with the blaze erupting after Clarkson began cooking some chips at a campsite. Viewers saw a fire engine race into the site, with sirens wailing, as if the crew faced a real emergency - but the fire service involved have confirmed that the entire scene was set up.


Only a complete idiot would have thought that this caravan blaze was anything but a joke. Jeez.
