Top Gear with Paddy McGuinness and Freddie Flintoff gets a Christmas special after being such a hit – The Sun

TOP Gear’s success with Paddy McGuinness and Andrew Flintoff at the wheel continues with the Beeb giving them a Christmas special.

The pair­ – who have already been signed up for a second series – will travel to Asia to film the episode with co-host Chris Harris.

It is the show’s first festive special since Jeremy Clarkson, Richard Hammond and James May went to Patagonia in 2014.

There, they infuriated locals by driving around with the number plate H982 FKL, a reference to the Falklands War of 1982.

BBC Two controller Patrick Holland said: “Top Gear has come back with a real bang and we couldn’t be happier with how the audience is responding.

“This Christmas we’ll have a special adventure which promises to be epic and gruelling in true Top Gear style.”
