Celebrity sheddie : Sir Steve Redgrave

I missed the Sport relief Top gear special, but was shocked to hear of the wrecking of a garden shed, the Bucksfree press follow it up.

CRATERS, concrete, tyre tracks and a burning shed are hardly the ingredients that make for a tranquil garden.

But this was the scene five-times Olympic gold medalist, and Marlow Bottom resident, Sir Steve Redgrave was faced with when the BBC’s Top Gear team decided to make over his garden.

Jeremy Clarkson, James May and Richard Hammond descended on Sir Steve’s quiet country home to make a charitable spoof of the garden make-over show, Ground Force.

The ‘make-over’ was filmed three weeks ago and was a complete surprise for Sir Steve, who returned home to find his new garden shed on fire, and deep tyre tracks across his lawn.

The show entitled Top Garden Ground Gear Force was made in aid of Sport Relief and was screened tonight on BBC Two.

The team had eight and a half hours to transform the garden
