Top Gear Viewers Shocked As Freddie Flintoff Wets Himself While Driving
Last night's Top Gear left some viewers less than impressed with the new presenters, with one branding it 'the worst episode ever':
The series premiere really divided viewers, with presenters Paddy McGuinness, Freddie Flintoff and Chris Harris getting stuck into their new roles.
But one moment in particular really split opinion, when Freddie Flintoff used a SheeWee and urinated on camera, after revealing it had leaked. Both Paddy and Chris found it hilarious.
The episode began with the three of them travelling to Bolton - Paddy's home town - where they had to spend 24 hours in three company cars, without getting out - hence the need for the wee.
Of course, how they would go to the toilet was one of the first of their concerns, with Paddy asking Chris: "Did you have a poo this morning?"
The comment really didn't go down that well:

The episode, which saw the three climbing between high end cars, pull down their trousers and sing karaoke, was the first time the three have presented together, and as you can see, it's been a bit hit and miss.
One disgruntled fan said: "Paddy, you and Flintoff have ruined Top Gear. It's no longer fit for car lovers or even the BBC, you've lowered it to the likes of ITV2 and people who watch Take Me Out. Disappointing!"
Another found it more of a guilty pleasure, tweeting: "Never particularly liked Paddy McGuinness or Freddie Flintoff but I have to begrudgingly admit that Top Gear is pretty funny. Childish, yes, but who gives a f***? I'll just watch University Challenge tomorrow."
A third was most definitely not impressed, commenting: "Big fan of Paddy McGuinness and Freddie Flintoff normally, but good Lord #TopGear is total sh*** tonight."

Another thought some light-hearted humour was just what they needed, saying: "I loved #TopGear last night. Very amusing. We all need a childish laugh right now don't we?? Seen some people on here moaning and still going on about Clarkson, May and Hammond... it's been years!! You're being a bit weird."
The episode was filmed partly before coronavirus lockdown, with the rest of it put together in recent months. At one point, Chris Harris - a journalist, racing driver and television presenter - gets a bit of a better offer than riding round the streets of Bolton, and goes on a trip to Italy to test out the Ferrari SF90 supercar.
