Former cricketer Andrew ‘Freddie’ Flintoff and Television host Paddy McGuinness have reportedly been chosen to host the next series of BBC’s hit motoring show Top Gear.
According to The Sun newspaper, the pair have been signed up to host the popular motoring programme in an effort to spice things up and bring back the glory days.
It is believed that top executives at the BBC have chosen the pair in the hope of creating a line up that will connect with audiences who have been underwhelmed since the departures of Jeremy Clarkson, Richard Hammond and James May back in 2015.
The Sun say the pair will join Chris Harris in fronting the series since Matt LeBlanc quit the show earlier this year, whilst Rory Reid will be moved to front a spin-off show called Extra Gear.
It is expected that the new hosts will begin filming the new series later this year and it is scheduled to air in 2019.
