  • Paddy Mc Guinness and Freddie Flintoff will host Top Gear

Starting in 2019, Take Me Out host Paddy, 45, and sportsman Freddie, 40, will take over the BBC2 series, after impressing bosses with their "infectious" chemistry in a secret run-through at a test track last week.

The lineup for the show has changed several times since the original trio - Jeremy Clarkson, Richard Hammond and James May - departed for Amazon Prime's The Grand Tour.

For the new-look show Reid is sadly - maybe even unfairly - being pulled from his duties on the main show but will still present Extra Gear, the franchise's whisky chaser that features sweet additional features, guests and behind the scenes insight.

"The BBC think having a British trio - two Lancashire lads and a auto buff - is a good move".

'Paddy and Fred are car-mad too.

"Top Gear" bosses also promised petrol heads and fans that the vehicle will remain the real star of the show but hint at an "even further escalation of humour, jeopardy and insurance bills as they embark on some of the show's biggest adventures to date".

Representatives for Top Gear and Paddy and Freddie have been contacted by MailOnline for comment.

However, LeBlanc announced earlier this year that he was parting ways with the show, because the show's "time commitment and extensive travel... takes me away from my family and friends more than I'm comfortable with". "Top Gear fans worldwide are a passionate bunch and I consider myself one of them", he added.

Originally, it was Chris Evans and Matt LeBlanc with smaller roles from Rory Reid, Eddie Jordan, Chris Harris and Sabine Schmitz.

'It's unfortunate, but for these reasons I will not be continuing my involvement with the show.

"This is a thrilling manoeuvre from the Top Gear team and I'm relishing what this trio will deliver", says Patrick Holland head of the BBC's BBC Two channel in a statement.

"I will forever be a Top Gear fan and I wish the team continued success". Thanks for a great drive'.

The one-time Friends actor has been with the show since 2016 and took the lead role from Chris Evans (the radio DJ, not Captain America) in 2017.
