Ewan McGregor is a TV daredevil

Ewan Mcgregor shocked fans on British TV on Saturday night (01Oct11) by leaping over actor Steve Coogan and singer Gary Barlow on a motorbike.

The Trainspotting star, who is a keen motorcyclist, decided to make a grand entrance for his interview with host Jonathan Ross.

The other guests on the show - Steve Coogan, Gary Barlow and the Take That star's The X Factor co-judge Tulisa Contostavlos - were asked to lie flat on the studio floor next to each other while Ewan McGregor clambered onto a motorbike.

The audience members were then left aghast as Ewan McGregor sped towards a ramp and jumped over the three stars.

The actor then stripped off his protective biking gear and threw it into the crowd, before taking a seat opposite Ross on the interview sofa.

And it's not the only stunt Ewan McGregor carried out on the night - he also shocked viewers as he puckered up in red lipstick, before smooching with the host after asking him if he'd ever kissed a man before.

Ewan McGregor asked Jonathan Ross, "Have you ever kissed a man? Do you want to kiss me now?" The pair then locked lips twice before ending the interview.
