New Show For Top Gear Presenters










Top Gear presenters Paddy McGuinness and Chris Harris are to front a new BBC road trip series. 

In November the BBC said the hosts would have “new projects” with the BBC when it announced that the entertainment series would be rested for the “foreseeable future”. 

The hit motoring show paused filming after presenter and former England cricket captain Andrew “Freddie” Flintoff was injured in an accident at the Top Gear test track at Dunsfold Aerodrome in December 2022. 

The new factual series, which has a working title of Paddy And Chris: Road Trippin’, will see Take Me Out star McGuinness, 50, and sports journalist Harris, 49, travel to European countries including Sweden, Greece and Switzerland. 

McGuinness said: “I’m very much looking forward to getting back on the road with Chris Harris. 

“Not so much looking forward to sharing a confined space with him. He doesn’t believe in deodorant. On the plus side he’ll give me something to laugh at along the way. Bring it on!” 

Harris said: “Paddy’s idea of long-haul travel is driving from Bolton to Blackpool, so this European road trip should be a real eye-opener for both of us. 

“When we’re finished debating the merits of literally everything we encounter, viewers will hopefully take something rewarding away from our deep-dive into the secrets of human longevity – but I’m just hoping my interest in the subject doesn’t dwindle as each mile goes by in Paddy’s company.” 

Kalpna Patel-Knight, head of entertainment commissioning at the BBC, said: “Paddy and Chris are packing their bags and heading off to Europe in this exciting new adventure. 

“The pair will explore different countries, cultures and people and will also be trying to discover the secrets to living a long and fulfilling life. 

“They will be trying their very best to embrace these new experiences all whilst of course having a good laugh along the way too. Bon voyage chaps.”
