The chancellor said a “noisy episode” of the BBC Two show was being filmed in central London on Sunday. He tweeted: “Trying to write my Budget, despite noisy episode of @BBC_TopGear being filmed outside on Horseguards Parade. Keep it down please @achrisevans.”

The budget is due to be delivered on Wednesday.

On Saturday, Top Gear host, Matt LeBlanc, and rally driver, Ken Block, surprised a bride and groom at St Paul’s Cathedral, by motoring past, with the former Friends star sticking his arm out of the car window to wave.

The new series is due to start in May. The line-up includes LeBlanc, Evans, The Stig, Formula 1’s Eddie Jordan, German racing driver Sabine Schmitz, journalist Chris Harris, and car-reviewer Rory Reid.
