    Top Gear presented by Chris Harris...

    BBC Top Gear: "Welcome to your new Top Gear presenters!"

    (22 October 2019)

    Ladies and Gentlemen, please welcome your new Top Gear hosts: Paddy McGuinness and Freddie Flintoff!

    Following Matt LeBlanc’s announcement that he will leave TG after the next series, we’re proud to announce that comedian and entertainment host McGuinness, along with former Ashes-winning England cricketer Flintoff, will join Chris Harris for Series 27 of Top Gear TV.

    Rory Reid will step down from the main presenting line-up, but will remain part of the Top Gear family, along with Sabine Schmitz. He’ll continue to be the face of TG’s companion show Extra Gear, and will form the heart of a larger digital presence for the show.

    “Getting the Top Gear gig is a real honour,” McGuiness said. “To be hosting a show I’ve watched and loved from being a small boy is beyond exciting. Top Gear fans worldwide are a passionate bunch and I consider myself one of them.

    “Now let’s start up this Great British machine and see what it can do,” he added.

    Flintoff 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.”

    Chris Harris added: “I think you can tell just how much fun we’re going to have making Top Gear with Paddy and Freddie. They’re both brilliant, natural entertainers – and their mischief mixed with the most exciting cars on the planet is sure to take the show to the next level.

    “My dream job just got even better.”

    Series 26 of Top Gear TV – Matt LeBlanc’s last as lead host – will debut in early 2019 on BBC Two, followed by Paddy, Freddie and Chris’s all-new Series 27 later in the year.

    I don't see it as a negative that they not are international renown.

    I was very skeptical at first, but he actually was pretty watchable.

    You should watch a show called Episodes. He plays himself and it's honestly one of the most hilarious shows I've ever watched.

    Not a great track record as petrol heads, one buys a Lambo only to realize he didn't fit in it (https://www.dailystar.co.uk/news/latest-news/694719/freddie-flintoff-can-t-fit-in-lamborghini-andrew-car-england-cricket-news) and the other buys a Ferrari and chooses the California (https://www.dailymail.co.uk/tvshowbiz/article-5599713/Paddy-McGuinness-splurges-160-00-Ferrari-California-cruises-streets-Manchester.html)

    At least they finally got the primary presenter right.

    Matt and Evans isnt on the same level as Harris when talking about cars and doing car shows. But who are the other 2 bozos?

    Brits. This is a BBC show after all. 

    Will give it a go (it's still a looooong way off - end 2019).

    Both Paddy & Freddie are individuals very comfortable in their own skin. This edges the show back towards a Clarkson type era insofar as presenters with character. Rory was a step too far in yoooof-bland for my liking and although Matt was likeable I'd sensed his repertoire was spent - will see if that's confirmed this season.

    Whoopsy:

    Matt LeBlanc is an entertainer who enjoys cars...he was actually perfect for the show. So is Chris Harris, the pro. I wish they had kept LeBlanc and added an attractive female presenter/driver (not Schmitz Smiley) to the mix but hey, they probably know their viewer demographics better than I do.

    Matt seems to have found new work in Hollywood (his "Man with a Plan" show is actually quite fun, my kids love it), so maybe this is the reason why he stopped doing Top Gear. Smiley

    It's not an Italian TV gameshow!

    Agree it would be nice to have a female in the mix though.  Can't think of too many candidates other than Jodie Kid, and even then she's probably better-suited to the other shows she does.  Actually, just read on Wikipedia that she was tipped when Evans left, but wasn't interested.

    Most women seem to like him Smiley but I like him too. He is a very good comedian and a good entertainer.

    Re: Top Gear presented by Chris Harris...

    Personally, I don't care if they are make or female, as long as they are experienced petrolheads who are also able to transmit how sportscsrs feel and their character like Chris Harris. And that they all have chemistry with each other. Not to sure about the comedian and the cricket player for this reason, though I will reserve judgement until I see the show. I wasnt sure about Matt LeBlanc but he grew on me as the show progressed.
