Total Wipeout set to 'return with Freddie Flintoff and Paddy McGuinness'

Cult TV show Total Wipeout is due to make a return with two new presenters – Top Gear’s Freddie Flintoff and Paddy McGuinness.

The zany show, which featured the world’s most ridiculous water-based obstacle courses, ran for three years before it was axed in 2012.

Freddy and Paddy are believed to be fronting a series of classic moments from the show on BBC1 – voicing the series from their homes.

Speaking to The Sun, Paddy said: “Now more than ever we need to laugh at people bouncing off those big red balls.

“I’m so happy to be involved in bringing this classic show back.”

It isn’t yet known when the series will air – but sources reckon it could hit screens later this summer.

A source said after the coronavirus disrupted filming “there has been a rush to try to fill slots in the schedule”.
