Car fan Amy Macdonald enjoyed having a shot at being a presenter on Top Gear recently.

The singer joined hosts Jeremy Clarkson, James May and Richard Hammond at the motoring programme’s sell-out shows at the Hydro in Glasgow last weekend.

Amy, 26, who lives in Milngavie, is a huge car enthusiast. She has owned an Audi Q7 and an £80,000 Audi R8 and bought a red Ferrari 458 which can go up to 202 mph.

She’s even written a song about the Ferrari called ‘Slow it Down’ which featured on her third album Life in a Beautiful Light.

Before the shows she tweeted: “Looking forward to doing some backstage filming for Top Gear Live at the Hydro. New career move?”
