On your marks, get set, Drive!

Drive_LineUp

Jump start your life into the fast lane with Vernon’s brand new series, Drive.

Eight celebrities take on the thrills and spills of motor racing in an adrenaline charged race with a difference.

Hosted by Vernon Kay, the show sees UK racing legend and double British Touring Car Champion, Jason Plato, on hand with his expert advice.

Celebrities taking to the tracks are: rapper Professor Green; singer Ella Eyre; TV personality Louis Walsh; actor and comedian Jonny Vegas; Olympic athlete Colin Jackson; TV presenter Mariella Frostrup; weather expert Laura Tobin and broadcaster Angus Deayton.

The high-octane driving competition will see the celebrities take to the driving seats of old bangers, buggies, 4x4s and rally cross cars among others.  As they get into pole position, we will see who has what it takes in a host of unexpected and action packed driving challenges.

The celebrities with the slowest time in each challenge will battle it out in a Night Race to see who will remain in the competition.  And those that remain by the Final will burn up the tracks in a F4 car in a bid to be crowned the Drive Champion.

‘Everyone thinks they can drive – but can they?’ asks Vernon. ‘This show will test not only their skills behind the wheel but also how they control their fear. Drive is not just about straight line speed, all driving skills are going to be tested. But when it’s not your clutch you’re burning or your tyres you’re shredding, it’s full steam ahead!’

Drive will test the celebrities to their limits but who will steer themselves to victory? Starts Tuesday 5th April at 9pm on ITV.
