‘The French don’t do flashy cars,’ says Paul Hollywood, bowling along in a boxy Peugeot 205 GTI.

But they do do revolutionary cars, as the finale of his laddishly likeable series makes clear.

He’s already demo-ed the Citroen DS, launched in 1955 with suspension so unique it later saved the life of President De Gaulle.

And he’s taken a spin in the Aixam Crossline Evo, a 1hp car – yes, one horse power – and a top speed of 28mph.

France is also the country that gave us the Michelin guide, and the Michelin-starred restaurant.

So Paul’s two worlds – food and cars – finally collide.
