James May to build life-size Lego house

Quote:
Top Gear presenter James May is looking for volunteers to help him build a new house in Surrey - but one made entirely out of Lego bricks.

As part of his BBC series James May’s Toy Stories, he plans to build a two-storey house in the middle of Denbies Wine Estate in Dorking.

On Friday, more than three million Lego bricks were delivered to the vineyard in preparation for the task.

Denbies marketing and business development manager, Jeanette Simpson, said: “The millions of bricks came all the way from the Czech Republic. The house will be life-size with a staircase, toilet and shower.”

May will be hosting a building day on Saturday, August 1, when members of the public can help him with the challenge.

The event follows two other successful toy challenges which saw May build the world’s first Plasticine garden, winning the People’s Choice Award at the Chelsea Flower Show, and also the world’s largest model plane.

Anyone interested in taking part in the Lego house build should e-mail their contact details to lego@plumpictures.co.uk.

James May's Toy Stories will also feature an attempt to create a Scalextric version of the Brooklands racetrack in Weybridge on August 16, as part of Brooklands Museum's Pendle Slot Racing Festival.

More than 20,000 pieces of Scalextric will be laid out before a local community team and members of the Scalextric Club go head-to-head in a 2.75-mile race.
