The new season/series of Top Gear has arrived on BBC America, and this year, Matt LeBlanc is bringing some of his Friends. Or more accurately, one of his co-stars from Episodes.

In the third episode of Top Gear series 24, actress Tamsin Greig was the celebrity guest for the episode. But instead of pairing up with LeBlanc, she teamed up with Top Gear co-host, Chris Harris for a little bit of time on the track. And as you can see in our first look at the episode, it wasn’t exactly a smooth experience for either of them, as Harris insisted on speed while Greig demanded that he be more polite with his instructions. Either way, she’s behind the wheel of a high performance vehicle, and we’re gonna see what happens next!

Matt LeBlanc gives James Bond a run for his money in this week’s new episode of Top Gear. Leblanc transforms into “LeBond” as he takes the Aston Martin DB11 through Montenegro, where he is thwarted by Chris Harris and a very evil Mercedes. Elsewhere, Rory Reid and Sabine Schmitz go supercar hunting on Germany’s fearsome Nürburgring race circuit with the help of the VW Golf Clubsport S, while Matt’s Episodes co-star Tamsin Greig takes to the Top Gear track!

Top Gear Series 24 episode 3 will make its North American debut on Sunday, March 26 at 8pm on BBC America.
