Freddie Flintoff, Top Gear’s host has said he is “absolutely fine” after a 124mph high speed accident whilst filming for the BBC’s show.

He was reportedly driving a super fast three wheel vehicle drag racing with with fellow presenters, Paddy McGuinness and Chris Harris.

It understood he was travelling at high speed when he “run out of runway” at the Elvington airfield.

Flintoff said, “I’m absolutely fine and was back filming today.”

“I go to great lengths to make sure I do well in Top Gear drag races but on this occasion I went a few lengths too far! It will look more ridiculous than dangerous when you see it on TV.”

A BBC Studios spokesperson said, “The health and safety of our presenters and crew on Top Gear is paramount.

“As viewers of the recent series will have seen, Freddie is often keen to get ‘off the beaten track’.

“Tuesday’s filming at Elvington Airfield was no exception – but he suffered no injuries as a result of his spontaneous detour, as fans will see for themselves when we show the sequence in full in the next series.”
