Ant and Dec Chauffeur Saturday Night Takeaway fan on her wedding day

Renowned for their quirky sense of humour and ‘anything goes’ attitude Ant and Dec are certainly full of surprises, characters that you may not want at your wedding. However, one bride, Charlotte Astle, was completely over the moon to have her wedding gate-crashed by the comedy duo, with the ITV favourites disguising themselves as wedding chauffeurs. The 27-year-old dance teacher had been a fan of Ant and Dec’s Saturday Night Takeaway for many years, with meeting the two men being a life-long dream. Understanding her love for the show her husband, Andy, got in touch with the production team, explaining how featuring them on the show would make his wife’s big day that bit more special. <h3>The perfect chauffeurs </h3> With waiting for your wedding car being a very poignant part of the wedding experience Charlotte was hugely surprised when Ant and Dec, both 40, turned up at her mother’s house, proving to be the best wedding present of all. Charlotte said: “Having Ant and Dec surprise me on my wedding day was a dream come true. “My reaction was such a blur that I’m lucky it was captured on film. “The drive to the church with the boys and my dad was hilarious. Ant and Dec were just as lovely and down to earth as I imagined.” Used as a feature on the show footage captures the moments before the surprise. With Ant driving he says to Dec in the passenger seat: “So do you want to surprise someone on their wedding day?” Noticed by the bridesmaids the whole wedding party lets out screams of excitement , heading...
The world’s first electric supercar drag races a Ferrari and wins!

The world’s first electric supercar drag races a Ferrari and wins!

      While Ferraris are regarded as the supercars of our generation it seems that they may have some new competition on their hands with the world’s first electric supercar well on its way to market. The Rimac Concept One has been very present in the press of late, promising to change the supercar market for the better. Boasting a strong structure and a streamlined design the car looks and feel the part, but how does it compare to the iconic LaFerrari? Racing driver, Archie Hamilton, wanted to find the answer, choosing the critically-acclaimed  LaFerrari as his weapon. Having zero confidence in the electric car he was rather shocked by the outcome, with the new-age car pulling away with no effort whatsoever. Devoid of struggle the electric car gave the Ferrari a run for its money with the driver heard to be saying. “That has destroyed me. It’s gone so much quicker than me.” “Oh my God, I didn’t get a great launch but oh my God, that thing is rapid. What the f***.” Offering impressive statistics of 0-62mph (0-100kmh) in 2.6 seconds, a top speed of 220mph (355kmh) and  1088 horsepower, we can now understand why the car hurled in front of Hamilton, built with that shock factor in mind. Following the race the Ferrari driver seemed to be feeling the wrath of the adrenaline. “This is the first electric supercar and it was taking on one of the fastest cars in the world.” “I didn’t have a clue which car was going to win. I was genuinely shocked. I couldn’t believe it. You would always think...
James Bond fans to tour Europe in ex funeral limousine

James Bond fans to tour Europe in ex funeral limousine

While more interested in the shiny, luxurious end of the limousine market we are always excited to hear of this unique limo stories, especially when they include James Bond fans. This is why were we very interested to learn of The Kirkthorpe Cavemen’s plans, a group of guys that are setting out on an extraordinary excursion all in the name of charity. With a 1992 Vauxhall Carlton they bought for £400 as part of the convoy the ‘Bond Banger’ will take them to various Bond film locations, a sponsored journey that will give all of the donations to The Dogs Trust and My Burns Club. The ex funeral limo will be an unlikely addition to the charity Fireball Rally next month. Joining the zany competition online the British guys are excited to be involved: Mr Davany, 35, said: “One of the prizes is for ‘best banger and most unlikely car to make it round’. We dropped on this Vauxhall Carlton. It’s an ex funeral limousine and was used for funeral processions. “It was made in 1992. It’s a banger. It was supposed to be £500 but the back window was missing, so the seller knocked £100 off. I think we’ve got ‘the best banger prize’ in the bag.” The September 17-20 rally will show up at destinations associated with the world of James Bond, including France, Switzerland, Italy, Liechtenstein, Austria, Belgium, Luxembourg and Germany. Mr Davany said: “I’m hoping we make it and don’t break down. We just want to raise a lot of money for two charities who so richly deserve it. We have quite a unique car...

Supercar season kicks off in Mayfair

Supercar season kicks off in Mayfair

Every summer London is inundated with beautiful vehicles, seeing the streets of areas like Mayfair peppered with some of the most beautiful cars the world has to offer. This week the residents of Mayfair enjoyed views of chrome Mercedes-Benz SLR McLarens, silver Lamborghini Aventadors and much more, kicking off what we now call ‘supercar season’. Mostly Arab-owned the cars are part of a 100-strong convoy that is flown into London each Summer, with Kuwait and Saudi Arabia car owners coming over to London for the summer months. Using The Dorchester as their backdrop the cars stood out like sore thumbs, an intentional display of wealth that we in London are rather used to now. A race to rich While these cars are no doubt some of the greatest cars ever made each car is there to outdo the next, with these Arabic riches not afraid to spend hundreds and thousands of pounds simply to get from A to B. Just last year we saw a Mercedes with Swarovski crystals and a £1million Pagani Huayra attracting passers-by. Likened to ‘spaceships’ the cars are just an example of the excessive nature of these people, renowned for posting their extravagant lifestyle all over social media platforms. Posing with jewellery, women and in some cases tigers we cannot help but think the London life may be a little slow for these holidaymakers. Here are just a few examples of the cars Mayfair has the pleasure of welcoming this week. Hire a Supercar If you are interested in cars of this nature then check out Cars For Stars’ supercar hire options, jam packed with...
