PRESTON-born cricketer, Andrew ‘Freddie’ Flintoff has found himself in a sticky situation with airport security in a trailer for a brand new series of Top Gear.

In the trailer, the spotlight is on the show’s Paddy McGuinness, Freddie Flintoff and Chris Harris as they try to explain why a speed gun, a pair of handcuffs and dirty boxer shorts are tucked away in their luggage.

“What was the nature of your trip? Was it for business or pleasure?” security ask while holding up a pair of handcuffs.

The trailer is also filled with sneak peeks of the trios antics, such as swamp buggy racing in alligator-infested waters.

While an official launch date is yet to be announced, the motoring entertainment show is set to return for its 32nd series later this year.

The final event of Team Top Gear’s Florida motorsport adventure sees them line up in a grid of heavily modified Ford Crown Victoria police cars, all equipped with power-boosting nitrous oxide.

The trio will also celebrate English inventor Sir Clive Sinclair, as Flintoff turns a Sinclair C5 – a one-person electric car designed by Sinclair – into a bobsleigh before attempting to reach 60mph down Norway’s Lillehammer’s Olympic luge track.

Commenting on the new trailer, thousands of Top Gear fans expressed their excitement.

One person said: “Man that’s a great teaser.”

“I never want this TV show to end,” said another.

A third said: “Yes, can’t wait, can’t get enough of Andrew Flintoff on TV right now.”

In August last year it was announced that BBC Studios was moving production of Top Gear from London to Bristol.

It was also confirmed that Dunsfold Aerodrome in Surrey will continue to be used as the Top Gear track while the series will still feature films shot around the world.

Top Gear will return to BBC One and BBC iPlayer in due course.
