Cape Town - Is there anything Andrew 'Freddie' Flintoff can't do?

We've seen him as an Ashes-winning hero, a one-time boxing champ and a bug-eating king of the jungle.

He's even taken centre stage in a musical.

According to the BBC website, the now the 40-year-old career chameleon is taking the driver's seat as one of the two new hosts of Top Gear, along with comedian Paddy McGuinness, and will join existing host Chris Harris.

Flintoff will take over from former Friends star Matt LeBlanc to front the next series of the long-running hit car show.

Filming for the 27th series will begin in early 2019.

Flintoff retired from cricket in 2013 with a recurring knee injury having played 79 Tests, 141 ODIs and seven T20Is for England.
