Amy Macdonald loved taking part in Top Gear contest
Motor-mad Scottish singer Amy Macdonald has ticked a major item off her bucket list after appearing on cult driving show Top Gear.
Macdonald indulged her passion for racing by taking part in the BBC TV programme's Star in a Reasonably Priced Car segment, in which celebrities drive around a racetrack.
She got behind the wheel of a hatchback car to complete the course earlier this month and crossed the finish line with a respectable lap-time of one minute and 44 seconds - just shy of Tom Cruise's record.
However, the 25-year-old star was left squirming on the series when presenter Jeremy Clarkson showed a clip of her cursing and skidding out of control during a test run.
The host told her, "You know when you spin off and you think the cameras weren't filming you? They were!"
A grinning Macdonald replied, "It was great fun. I had a good laugh! (I drove) right over all them (sic) lights. I think I wasn't paying attention at that point and I suddenly went right off, but I went off with style."
As a parting gift, the This Is the Life hitmaker was presented with a broken landing light she mowed down.
