Rory McIlroy and David Hasselhoff among stars in the driving seat on The Grand Tour

The Grand Tour has unveiled its celebrity guests for the show’s second series which will see stars pitted against each other around a track.

Former England cricket captain Kevin Pietersen and actors Hugh Bonneville and David Hasselhoff are among those in the driving seat as the Amazon series announced an all-male celebrity line-up for its celebrity face-off challenge.

Luke Evans, Kiefer Sutherland, Dominic Cooper, Dynamo, Rory McIlroy, Michael Ball and Alfie Boe are the other stars taking part in the new contest when the show returns next month.

The first episode will see Kaiser Chiefs frontman Ricky Wilson take on his personal hero and former Baywatch star, Hasselhoff.

Wilson said: “I’m fiercely competitive and whilst I don’t know the results yet, it’s OK if Hasselhoff beats me because he’s my hero.

“I really enjoyed it and I hope it looks as good on TV as it felt being in the car.”

Hasselhoff said: “I’m basically an actor, I’m not really a good driver but I just look good doing it.”

:: The Grand Tour returns to Amazon Prime Video on December 8.
