All Star Driving School: Meet the celebrities hoping to pass their test this week

E4’s All Star Driving School continues tonight as celebrities learn to drive in a brand new show.


Each week, a new batch of celebs will undergo tuition before taking their test at the end of their intensive course.

The All Star Driving School opens its doors to three brand celebrity learners this evening at 7:30PM on E4. Paired up with their instructors, they’re unleashed onto the roads of Essex to embark on an intensive driving course, in the hope of passing their tests at the end of the week.

In tonight’s episode, the fresh batch of celebs are about to find out if they have what it takes to get behind the wheel and pass their test.

Joining the school this week are singer, dancer and former Pussycat Doll Kimberly Wyatt, Made in Chelsea’s Francis Boulle and Olympic gymnast and Strictly Come Dancing semi-finalist Claudia Fragapane.

Kimberly’s the most experienced of the bunch, having passed her automatic test back in the day in the USA. However, she needs to acclimatise to several things – a manual gearbox, driving on the left and her instructor Pells, who’s admitted to being partial to a bit of ‘flanter’… flirty banter!

Francis has been paired with down-to-earth instructor Maxine. While he boasts of driving a 4×4 through the African bush, closer to home in Essex he struggles with hill starts and clutch control.

Claudia is the least experienced of the bunch and is paired with Ricky, aka The Stickler. After giving her a lesson in how to wear a seatbelt, he finally lets her loose, at which point she drives straight over a roundabout and nearly crashes into a curb!

And all three celebrities get to test their reflexes in today’s challenge – the treacherous Multi-Hazard Car Park, where they’ll have to dodge any hazard that crosses their paths! S


You’ll be able to keep up with the trio’s efforts all week at 7:30PM on E4.

Other celebs taking part over the series have included Geordie Shore star turned presenter Vicky Pattison and Tattoo Fixers’ Paisley Billings.
