Paddy McGuinness and Andrew 'Freddie' Flintoff have been named the name Top Gear presenters by the BBC. The pair will replace Matt LeBlanc, who will step down at the end of the next series. The pair will present alongside current presenter, Chris Harris, whilst Rory Reid will move to present Top Gear's spin off 'Extra Gear' show, alongside Sabine Schmitz.

Both stars are said to be thrilled, with McGuinness commenting "To be hosting a show I've watched and loved from being a small boy is beyond exciting.", and Flintoff also commenting "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."

Both new presenters are household names in the U.K., with Mr. McGuinness hosting 'Take Me Out' and rising to fame with fellow comedian Peter Kay in programmes such as Phoenix Nights. Flintoff on the other-hand retired from Cricket in 2013 with a recurring knee injury and currently presents the Radio 5 Live podcast "Flintoff, Savage and the Ping Pong Guy", with Robbie Savage and Matthew Syed.
