‘I’ve been to Saudi Arabia a few times and always have a great experience, so I love that Formula E is in Diriyah.’

‘Living in a more sustainable world and being able to enjoy motorsports at the same time is incredible,’ she added.

To kick off the weekend, thousands of fans watched on as 22 of the fastest, lightest, most powerful and efficient electric race cars in the world – the GEN3 – went head to head.

He layered the jacket over a simple white t-shirt and completed his look with a pendant chain necklace.

Slipping his feet into chunky colour-coordinating boots, Lucien sported designer stubble and wore his raven locks in wet-look style. 

Speaking about the event, Lucien commented: ‘I’m a massive fan of motorsport and anything to do with cars. Seeing the new GEN3 race car on track for the first time was insane. It looks like a fighter jet on wheels and sounds like it’s from a sci-fi movie’.

He added: ‘Formula E are leading the world in electric car innovation. I’m in line for an electric vehicle and this has really given me a taste.’

The Diriyah Street Circuit, just outside of the Saudi capital, Riyadh, is a full street circuit snaking the historic city’s walls at the UNESCO World Heritage site. 

The circuit will again be lit by the latest low-power LED technology around the circuit. These reduce energy consumption by up to 50 per cent compared to non-LED units, and they will be powered by sustainably-sourced biofuel generators.

It was recently revealed Lucien has caught the eye of James Bond boss Barbara Broccoli and is being lined up to become the new 007 to replace Daniel Craig.

The Burnley-born actor caught the attention of the movie franchise’s bosses for his role in Emily In Paris.  

Lucien, whose first role was as a child model for Marks & Spencer when he was ten, is also deemed to be the perfect age to play Bond. 

According to the Mail On Sunday, Broccoli has made it clear she wants the next actor to portray the character for 15 years, which rules out former favourite Idris Elba, who turned 50 in September.

It is also thought that Broccoli and her team are keen to have an ethnic-minority star to play 007 so the franchise is reflective of modern society.

However, some executives are fearful Laviscount’s appearance on Celebrity Big Brother, when he finished in fifth place, will tarnish his chances of getting the job because previous Bonds have been more highbrow.

A source said: ‘Lucien ticks all of the boxes. He is a super talented actor, is extremely handsome and in the past 18 months has won lots of new fans since he joined Emily In Paris.

‘Bond bosses are already saying how you can see him in the 007 tuxedo, how dapper and fitting to the role he will look.

‘But, there is a sticking point, and that is Big Brother. Lucien appeared on the show at a time when his acting career was not as high-profile as it is now, but he was very popular then and has a fan base now which stretches generations. That is a dream for Barbara who is very taken with him.’
