'Top Gear' presenter James May accidentally burnt his manhood whilst filming an episode near a volcano in Iceland
James May accidentally burnt his manhood whilst filming an episode of 'Top Gear'.
The car show host was driving a four-by-four vehicle around a live volcano in Iceland for an upcoming episode, when he desperately needed the toilet.
As he quickly jumped out of the vehicle to relieve himself, the 47-year-old star ended up in pain as he got too close to the burning lava.
He explained: "I tried to have a wee next to the volcano but I couldn't.
"It actually burnt my old chap as soon as I got it out. I had to get it away really quickly before it became a piece of lava itself!"
James and his co-hosts Jeremy Clarkson and Richard Hammond are known for their crazy car-related stunts, with Richard almost killing himself in a jet-car crash in 2006.
After their painful mishaps, the men have now decided to "rein in" their outlandish behaviour.
James added to the Daily Star newspaper: "We decided we had to rein in on the complete tomfoolery. It's like drinking in the pub - there's a point that you think you are still funny but everyone else is finding you a bit wearing."
