An episode of Top Gear filmed in Kent looks certain to be Jeremy Clarkson's swansong after he was sacked by the BBC today.
The controversial host was suspended after allegedly punching a producer in a row over catering.
It meant an edition filmed at Lydden Hill before the incident was the last to be shown while he worked for the corporation.
But a BBC spokesman said they are now looking at ways to schedule the remaining episodes put on hold during his suspension.
More than five million viewers tuned in to watch the episode, which was secretly shot at the circuit just off the A2 outside Canterbury late in 2014.
Clarkson won't have his contract renewed after Lord Hall, Director General of the BBC, considered the findings on an internal investigation.
The Daily Telegraph reported the corporation was hoping to woo Chris Evans to take over.
It was not the first time the trio of petrolheads had ventured to Kent to film the long-running show.
Last month, the results of last summer's filming in Lydd was shown on TV.
And in January, a giant version of The Stig made its way through the county as part of a PR stunt for the show.
Clarkson has also waded into controversy in Kent, hitting out at Ashford's shared space roads scheme and speedbumps in Ulley Road, Kennington.
The star took to Twitter to criticise the speed humps, telling his 3.5m followers: "People of Ulley Road. With all those stupid speed humps, I hope you never need an ambulance."
Sixteen sets of speed bumps run along the length of Ulley Road and The Street.
Clarkson had attacked Ashford's road network before.
In 2008 he hit out at the town's shared space scheme, branding it 'piffle' and claiming it was only a matter of time before somebody was killed.
He then branded those behind the scheme as 'idiots' and, writing in his Times column, predicted a 'Jaguar dance of death.'
