Golden ticket! Lucky Lincoln fans watch the Grand Tour

Meet the lucky Lincoln fans with tickets to watch the Grand Tour being filmed inside Lincoln Cathedral.

Jeremy Clarkson, Richard Hammond and James May have all been filming in the city today for the final episode of the third season of the Amazon show.

Hundreds queued up outside in the cold hoping to catch a glimpse of the famous trio, but there were no guarantees of being let inside.

Some towards of the back of the queue were placed on “standby”, as it wasn’t clear if there would be enough room.

The Lincolnite went to meet some motoring fans while they were heading inside Lincoln Cathedral.

Many were excited about seeing the final episode being filmed and the prospect of singing a hymn called “Dear Ford & Farther of mankind.”

However, after getting inside some complained that it wasn’t “fun singing the same hymn over and over again.”

Although phones were not allowed inside, we managed to get a sneak peek of what’s been happening.

The county is set to feature heavily in the new series, with the Grand Tour filming yesterday on the circuit at Cadwell Park, near Louth.

Filming continues Saturday from 10am at Lincolnshire Showground, where classic Ford cars will gather for a final farewell ride from the showground to the cathedral between midday and 3pm.
