Total Wipeout Is Returning With Paddy McGuinness And Andrew Flintoff As Hosts

Everyone's favourite obstacle course TV series, Total Wipeout, is coming back to the UK.

But instead of the usual hosts who graced our screens for three years, it will be Paddy McGuinness and Freddie Flintoff in the hot seats.

After an eight-year absence, the show is being brought back with the two new hosts to pump a bit more banter into franchise.

There won't be any new episodes, but the duo will use their comedy gold and bromance chemistry to do commentary on episodes that aired between 2009 and 2012.

Paddy has told The Sun: "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."

Freddie added: "I can't wait to be involved with this brilliant show and to have a laugh watching people fumble with those balls."

Richard Hammond and Amanda Byram were the original hosts of the show, however they bowed out after 2012.

The show featured 20 contestants every week, who had to make their way through the daring obstacle course the fastest to claim the £10,000 prize.

They would have to overcome sections that swung, bounced, pushed and required Hercules-levels of strength.

There were loads of different names for the challenges, including The Sweeper Crash Mountain, Double Cross, the Ski Lift, Dizzy Dummies, The Dreadmill, Terror-Go-Round and Winter Blunderland to name a few.

If a contestant lost their grip or didn't quite make it and ended up in the water below it meant their time on Total Wipeout was over.

It's not clear when the revamped series with new hosts will be released on the BBC, so you'll have to stay tuned for that update.
