For over 12 years Phillipa Sage worked alongside Clarkson, Hammond and May as their PA, gofer, and fixer where she saw the boys at their best and, hilariously, at their worst. A closet petrol head, Phillipa first worked with Jeremy Clarkson and Andy Wilman (Grand Tour's Executive Producer) in 1997. She proved to be a loyal, trusted friend and colleague to the now infamous trio and became a key member of 'The Bubble', the exclusive, dysfunctional working family that toured the world. With an enormous budget, they travelled like rock stars, taking their unique brand of motoring madness to 18 countries and to over 2 million fans in arenas from New Zealand to Norway. Supported by a large crew and their personal entourage, Clarkson, Hammond and May, when not performing in their high octane, live action show, indulged in extravagant holidays. They and their 'Bubble' family relaxed in luxury resorts or private houses entertaining themselves with pool parties, drinking, motorboat cruises, drinking, jet skiing, drinking and eating. In Off-Road with Clarkson, Hammond & May, Phillipa shares the tour highs, lows and laughter of three incredibly talented, stupid and naughty boys.
