Chris Harris took to Twitter earlier today to share a cheeky snap of a car he’d been testing during filming for Top Gear. The BBC presenter shared a look at what had happened with his 339,000 followers.

The latest series of the BBC car series is currently filming ahead of its return to prime time.

The show will see Chris back alongside his co-hosts Paddy McGuinness and Freddie Flintoff.

However, it seems not everything has been going to plan for the series just yet.

Top Gear star Chris posted on his page earlier today about an incident while shooting.

The star shared a picture of the scrapped up tire of a car that had been tested.

Tagging the official Top Gear account in his tweet, he simply penned: ‘Whoops.”

Following his tweet, a number of his followers weighed in with their thoughts.

One of his followers wrote: “Someone’s been having a blast.”

“Do they give you like 3 sets of tyres knowing your coming for a test drive!?”(sic) a second replied.

A third wrote: “I would say burning rubber, but looks like your burning canvas instead.

“Guessing the loud pedal was very loud today.”

Others were left wondering what car had been at the receiving end of the treatment.

A user penned: “Properly driving a Ferrari I see?”

While another replied: “There aren’t many Ferraris with carbon wheels that have not been reviewed by the Top Gear cast.”

A third speculative fan quipped: “Nice Porsche.”

Filming for the latest series of Top Gear reportedly began back in May.

However, no release date has yet been confirmed for its return to screens.

Elsewhere, Chris recently shared a public thank you after his Ferrari rolled back into someone’s car.

Posting on August 31, the broadcaster wrote: “To the very polite man who stopped to chat this morning as I wrangled with the glass on my s*** old Ferrari’s wing mirror, sorry for letting it roll back into your Boxster. #whoops”

The man in question then replied to him, typing: “No problem Chris!

“An absolute pleasure, I was on my way for my MOT and the car failed because my number plate had been knocked off.

“Only kidding and will have a look for your mirror outside our house.”
