The presenter and comedian, 48, is one of the stars of ‘Top Gear’ alongside Freddie Flintoff and Chris Harris. The trio were confirmed as the new presenting line-up for the BBC motoring series back in 2019. Since then, Paddy has landed himself another new presenting role with the broadcaster on ‘Question of Sport’. It was confirmed in July of this year that he would take over from Sue Barker as host of the long-running quiz show.

The programme also got fresh team captains, as Ugo Monye and Sam Quek replaced Matt Dawson and Phil Tufnell.

Question of Sport returns to BBC One tonight with a new set of sportspeople set to have their sporting knowledge put to the test.

Joining Paddy will be Wimbledon winner Pat Cash and Olympic Taekwondo silver medallist Lauren Williams.

Great Britain sprinter Richard Kilty and England footballer Lianne Sanderson make up the line-up.

Paddy shot to fame with the help of fellow Bolton comedian Peter Kay and often shows his funny side on TV.

In one bizarre moment in March last year, the star joked around as he appeared on ‘The One Show’.

Hosts Alex Jones and Matt Baker were initially stunned as Paddy began taking apart the show’s set and ranting about Brexit.

The pair were speaking to the comedian about his recent projects, including the latest series of ‘Top Gear’.

However, as the trio chatted, Paddy accidentally kicked the plastic coffee table in front of him.

Alex noticed the accident and said: “you’ve just broken our table!” before adding: “Don’t pull it!”

However, the ‘Top Gear’ star proceeded to pull bits of the table off and held them up for the cameras.

Paddy said: “What is that? Is this where we’ve come to on the BBC, a bit of Sellotape [holding the table together].”

“I’m blaming Brexit, the budget’s only just come out, I’ve literally just caught that on my foot.”

Alex also held up a piece of plastic and said: “To be fair, this was what was holding it together.”

Paddy said: “That is ridiculous, I’m sorry about that, look at this one!” as he snapped another piece off.

He added: “What kind of show are we running here? This is on the BBC, this goes around the world.”

Despite his antics, the BBC confirmed Paddy as the new Question of Sport host earlier this year.

The presenter recalled his fond memories of watching the programme and heaped praise on his predecessor.

He told the BBC: “I love the fiercely competitive nature of sports stars coupled with having a laugh.

“That’s why A Question of Sport has always been one of my favourite shows and having been weaned on it from an early age, this is an honour and opportunity I’m certainly not taking lightly.

“I grew up with both Davids hosting, but it’s Sue who made this show her own.

“She will always be A Question of Sport icon, but I’ll try my best to stamp my own mark on it.”

‘Question of Sport’ is on BBC One tonight from 7.30pm-8pm.
