New Top Gear hosts announced

So the new hosts for Top Gear have been announced and for me, it marks the final nail in the coffin of this show

Andrew Flintoff

Paddy McGuiness

I for one wont be watching this train wreck but what do others think?

Strange pairing.

However, I don't see the point of writing it off without actually seeing what they come up with.

Sabine and Rory will be taking a back seat. That's something others have been asking for.

I like paddy mcguinness. Be interesting to see how he takes to cars. I'm assuming he's been brought in to add a bit of comedy. I will watch it

Apparently both Flintoff & McGuiness are Lambo nuts , and own one each.

I like them both and prefer them massively to LeBlanc, Chris Harris and Rory Reid. That was tough watching!

Harris isn't going.

The show still needs someone knowledgeable about cars and driving.

I like them both on the shows they do but as presenters of Top Gear im not so sure. Will watch it though as anything to do with cars on tv is a bonus.

If I'm honest I'm not a Freddie fan but do like Paddy, so will be well up to giving them the benefit of dought on new show, IMHO Rory got better at end of last series and it was way better than the last series of Grand Tour IMHO
