Top Gear viewers floored as Freddie Flintoff unveils epic hair transformation

Daily Star’s Inside Hot TV newsletter sees Ed Gleave send you telly’s hot takes straight to your inbox every Sunday

Top Gear fans were distracted by Freddie Flintoff's hair transformation during Sunday's episode.

The 43-year-old TV presenter and former international cricketer was hosting the show's new series alongside co-stars Chris Harris and Paddy McGuinness.

Freddie went for a completely new look with his iconic hairstyle, and his side-parting certainly got viewers talking on Twitter.

He paired the new hairdo with some vintage-style glasses, sending viewers watching into a frenzy.

Some loved Freddie's new look, as one tweeted: "Hang about. How is Freddie Flintoff making those glasses look sexy af."

While another wrote: "That hair and glasses is an actual vibe."

"Can we all just take a minute to appreciate Freddie Flintoff," penned a third with a heart-eyes emoji.

A fourth gushed: "Freddie Flintoff is b***dy gorgeous."

"Freddie has 90s curtains!!" penned another.

Others weren't so sure about Freddie's new hairdo, as one wrote: "Freddie Flintoff's curtains haircut is the funniest thing of 2021 so far."

Another penned: "What is goin on with Flintoffs glasses and hair?!"

Fans can expect plenty of entertaining episodes in the new series, including one which sees the presenting trio wearing Lycra and wetsuits.

Freddie, Paddy and Chris donned the tight outfits for a mini-triathlon.

And they are worried about how it will look on the telly.

Paddy explained: "We were in Lycra, which is not a good look for a middle-aged man swimming in a lake. The wetsuits were very snug. And they were very unforgiving.

"I’m dreading that footage airing. Us in wetsuits in HD and 4K is not going to be pleasant for the British public."

Chris, 46, added: "I hope that stuff isn’t airing in 4K. It must be 1K. I’m going to check!"

TV in 4K is super high definition and shows minute detail – it is only available on selected shows.

According to the presenters, they didn't expect the ordeal to be so traumatic when producers suggested it.

Paddy said: "A triathlon sounded fine, but remember people usually train for six months and we had a couple of weeks’ notice.

"We’ve done some quite risky things on this show. I think the triathlon was the riskiest because we were all on the verge of having heart attacks… apart from Fred, obviously, who is never out of the gym.

"It was the hardest thing we did this series. It was so prolonged and horrendous.

"It was lung-sapping and so gruelling. It was really hard going. Me and Chris were really struggling."

Chris added: "I get out of breath walking to the shop to get my fags in the morning."
