Welcome to your new Top Gear presenters!

The trio will stay for one more series (Series 26, which will debut early next year), but after that Harris will be joined by two new hosts - comedian Paddy McGuinness, who hosts the dating show Take Me Out, and former Ashes-winning cricketer Freddie Flintoff.

Well the BBC has finally revealed that not one, but two hosts will be added to the "Top Gear" lineup.

Regardless, we're bummed to see Matt LeBlanc leave Top Gear for other endeavors and Rory Reid pushed to a sideline position.

American Matt LeBlanc was a surprise addition to the Top Gear presenting line-up along with Chris Evans two years ago, following the departure of Clarkson, Hammond and May. Rory Reid, the third co-presenter and a former CNET writer, will become the face of Extra Gear, the show's behind-the-scenes spin-off.

Freddie Flintoff added: "It's not often you have the chance to do both of your dream jobs, but I'm now lucky enough to say I will have".

Freddie, 40, and 45-year-old Paddy will start filming their first series in early 2019.

Top Gear bosses have said there will be a slight change in direciton for the show - but confirmed the auto will remain the real star of the show.

The two new presenters both trace their heritage back to Lancaster, and it's likely that Yankee Top Gear fans may be unfamiliar with their names.

In a statement from BBC Studios, LeBlanc said his "experience on Top Gear has been great fun" and that he has "thoroughly enjoyed working with the whole team".

Speaking about his new role, McGuinness said: "Getting the Top Gear gig is a real honour and I'm thrilled the BBC have given me this opportunity. Chris Harris might have the greater vehicle skills, but when it comes to the infamous Top Gear challenges, he's going to have to bring his A-game to have the beating of these two".

"I will forever be a Top Gear fan and I wish the team continued success". Or is it a sign the Beeb just can't get the mix right since the original lads left?
