The former Top Gear presenter has turned sixty today meaning he is now eligible for a free bus pass. He took to his Twitter to share the news, writing:
“I have successfully applied for my over-60s bus and tube pass. Pretty impressive, old person using the internet, etc etc.”
In an additional post, May also thanked his fans for all of their birthday wishes, but in true James May fashion:
May, widely branded as “Captain Slow,” is best known for his role as a co-presenter on the long-running BBC motoring show, Top Gear. May’s unique approach to cars and his dry sense of humour very quickly made him a fan-favourite on the show, as well as his chemistry with Jeremy Clarkson and Richard Hammond.
He started his career as a freelance journalist, writing for various publications such as The Times and Car Magazine. In addition to Top Gear and The Grand Tour, May has also hosted other shows including “James May’s Man Lab” and “James May: Our Man in Japan.” May is also an accomplished author, having written several books including “James May’s Cars of the People” and “James May’s 20th Century.”
The Grand Tour finished filming in Europe last year and is in the edit stage of the process at the moment, and May has another series of his hit cooking show ‘Oh Cook!’ which should be coming out very soon to Prime Video, although no dates have been confirmed at the moment.
