Paddy McGuinness and Freddie Flintoff will present the new season of Top Gear. They'll take over the BBC2 series after impressing bosses in a secret run-through last week.

Earlier this year, Former Friends star Matt LeBlanc announced he would not be returning to the show.

Speaking about his new role, Take Me Out presenter McGuinness said: 'Getting the Top Gear gig is a real honour and I'm thrilled the BBC have given me this opportunity.

'To be hosting a show I've watched and loved from being a small boy is beyond exciting.'

While Fintoff said: 'It's not often you have the chance to do both of your dream jobs, but I'm now lucky enough to say I will have.

'I've always been passionate about cars and I'm so excited to be joining the Top Gear team.'

Filming on the new series will get underway in early 2019.
