Top Gear’s latest series comes to an end on Sunday as Chris Harris, Paddy McGuinness and Freddie Flintoff investigate the world of electric cars. However, fans of the BBC show needn’t worry as the presenting trio opened up to about future series and the “bizarre” aspect of being a part of the beloved show. 

Paddy, Freddie and Chris returned to BBC One with a bang earlier this month by kicking off the series with a Florida road trip. 

The trio had filmed series’ during the pandemic but travel restrictions had limited Top Gear’s signature style of travelling around the world. 

Top Gear wasted no time in getting back to what it does best by taking the team to the home of grassroots racing.

Speaking to ahead of the latest series arriving on screens, the presenters admitted they were thrilled to be back together.

Paddy remarked: “The weird thing about Top Gear is because we’re constantly doing something, it doesn’t feel like a new series because we’re already filming the next one now.

“So it’s as though we’re kind of pretty much doing it all year round.”

“It’s like it’s just an ongoing thing,” the Question of Sport host added.

Freddie continued: “It’s bizarre when it comes on the telly, all we do is see each other on telly because you turn up, you do a bit of driving, you have a laugh and then all of a sudden you do the voice over and then it’s on the telly.

“But Paddy’s right it never stops,” the former English cricketer said. 

Chris explained he’d felt a change to the series when they were filming the latest batch of episodes. 

He said: “It does feel a bit more organised now. Normally, it’s a bit frantic and you’re doing the studio and the voiceover a week before it airs.

“But now we’re already two or three films into the next run, we’ve never been in that position before.
