A photo snapped Thursday by a passenger on a flight from Calgary to Kelowna would appear to confirm rumours that the British automotive show The Grand Tour is filming in the Okanagan.

Reddit user Mrbooty69 posted a selfie with TV star Jeremy Clarkson at Kelowna Airport.

Rumours have been flying that the show's crew is staying at the Penticton Lakeside Resort, where crews were seen by hotel guests loading up an Alfa Romeo SUV.

The show is said to be filming at Area 27 racetrack near Oliver.

Co-stars Richard Hammond and James May have also been spotted in the valley.

The Oliver track held its grand opening this summer, and membership to the exclusive club costs a whopping $45,000.
