Top Gear’s Paddy McGuinness speaks out about show future


Top Gear‘s Paddy McGuinness has spoken out about the future of the show and the possibility of new hosts taking over.

The discussion comes after McGuinness was quizzed on whether the show is looking to reinvent itself ahead of the launch of its 32nd season, which premiered on BBC One over the weekend.

“It’s our show now and we’re all in it, you know, and who knows further down the line it’ll stop here or carry on going… it’ll always change hosts,” McGuinness told Radio Times.

McGuinness also told the publication that Top Gear has a formula that works and that there is no need to reinvent a show that brings in increased ratings with every series.

“But for now, it’s not a case to reinvent – it’s just keeping up the good vibes of it and keeping the viewers interested, which it does every series it gets more and more viewers. And that’s all we can do,” he added.

“Those feelings of reinventing it and pressure and everything else kind of went with the first series for me.”

His co-host Chris Harris added: “You never know what’s going to happen to you around the corner. But it’s a great fun job. And it appears to be a brand that’s working well for us and the BBC.”

The show’s hosts – Freddie Flintoff, Chris Harris and Paddy McGuinness – reunited on our screens on Sunday (June 5) on BBC One.

In this series, the trio takes on Florida in a number of adrenaline-pumping activities including swamp buggy racing in Naples, Florida, where the Top Gear team will ride their own aquatic buggy around an alligator-infested bayou.

Flintoff, McGuinness and Harris are also set to live out their TV cop dreams by driving some iconic cop cars from TV shows, such as Starsky and Hutch‘s Ford Gran Torino.

McGuinness, who has presented the show since 2019, clearly has no current plans to leave.

Top Gear continues on Sunday, June 12 on BBC One.
