I'm a Celebrity... Get Me Into A Classic Jag

Updated: Nov 24, 2021

A few weeks ago we were approached by ITV for a top secret project requiring four classic cars. Over the years most of our cars have been TV and film stars so this was right up our street. In fact, for five years up to 2017 we supplied 50 cars a year for the BBC's popular Antiques and Celebrity Antiques Road Trips.

ITV wanted classic 1960s British saloons but weren't sure what the options were. We suggested the Jaguar Mk2 - surely the iconic 60s classic British saloon and we just happen to have one - and also provided a list of 1960s classic saloon cars like the Ford Zodiac and Vauxhall Cresta.

The producers chose the Mk2 and arrangements were made to deliver our 1965 Jaguar Mk2 3.4 to Wales using our own trailer transport in early November. At this point we had no idea what programme the car was being used for.

Fast forward to mid November and photos start appearing in national newspapers of our Mk2 in convoy with three other identical Jaguars. For ITV's prime time I'm a Celebrity Get Me Out of Here.

We're really pleased to see the beautiful Mk2 Jaguar getting some high profile love on I'm a Celebrity Get Me Out of Here. They are gorgeous, iconic cars that represent a time when Britain really was Cool Britannia.

You can drive this screen star from just £69 with our exclusive range of classic driving experiences. Click here to find out more.
