A HUGE bust of The Grand Tour presenter James May has taken up residence in the front garden of a family home in Elstead.
Mum-of-three Laura Norgate took delivery of the statue last Friday after winning a competition to win one of three busts of former Top Gear co-hosts James May, Richard Hammond and Jeremy Clarkson created for their new Amazon Prime motoring show.
Laura was picked at random after tweeting a photo of her garden with the hashtag #GiveMeHeads, and also received a goody bag containing an Amazon Echo ‘smart speaker’, a Grand Tour t-shirt and an Amazon Fire TV stick.
She told The Herald: “We always watch The Grand Tour, it’s a bit of a family ritual, so when I saw the competition on Twitter I thought ‘how cool would that be?’.
“You only live once and how many people can say they’ve had a giant statue of James May in their garden!”
Despite its stony appearance, the statue is in fact hollow, made of a mixture of polystyrene and fibre glass over a steel frame.
“I’d like to have it forever,” Laura continued, “but unfortunately we’re only allowed to keep it for around two weeks.
“I don’t think my neighbours quite registered when I told them what was coming, but thankfully they quite like it!”
