A TV star attracted quite a crowd as film crews descended on a Kent beach.
Guy Martin was spotted in Hythe whilst filming took place for an episode of the new series of his show, Speed With Guy Martin.
Martin, a professional motorcycle racer and mechanic, was seen strapped into a zeppelin and it is believed he is attempting to pedal the airship across the channel for the upcoming Channel 4 show.
Fans gathered on the seafront last night to watch his initial attempts at getting off the ground.
Martin took selfies with fans in between shooting some scenes.
A video posted on Twitter showed Martin getting airborne in the pedal-powered blimp outside the Hythe Imperial Hotel.
The adrenaline junkie has filmed two series of the show which has so far seen him try to break several records.

He has completed challenges in several vehicles including motorcycles, hovercrafts and a soapbox car.
In March, he set a new record for the Wall of Death - the perilous motorcycle challenge around a vertical wall without support - live on television with a speed of 78.15mph.
Other programmes Martin, who is from Grimsby, has made include building a replica Spitfire from scratch based on an original which had been buried in a French beach since 1940 before taking the replica to the skies.
