Goodwood Revival to feature Mr Bean

Mr Bean's famous pea green and black Mini is due to make an appearance at this year's Goodwood Revival.

The car will be driven by the actor Rowan Atkinson who will adopt the persona of his popular comedic character.

Each day, there will be a big parade of Minis to mark the iconic motor's 50th anniversary and Mr Bean will take part in this spectacle.

However, he may struggle to get cover for your classic motor for the show as he will not be controlling his auto from behind the wheel.

Instead, Atkinson will be perched on a armchair fixed to the roof of his vehicle and will operate the pedals and steering using string and a mop - just like he did in one famous episode of Mr Bean.

Meanwhile, this year's Goodwood Revival will also celebrate the 80th birthday of the motor racing legend Sir Stirling Moss.

The event will feature a range of cars driven by the star over the years.
