BBC confirm launch date for Total Wipeout: Freddie And Paddy Takeover

BBC One have confirmed the launch date for its rebooted Total Wipeout series.

In the reworked series, Cricketing legend, presenter and broadcaster Freddie Flintoff, and comedian, actor and presenter Paddy McGuinness provide hilarious commentary to classic Total Wipeout episodes – replacing former Top Gear host Richard Hammond.

In the first episode a butler, a model and a sheep farmer are just three of the fearless contestants who’ll be attempting to jump, spin, slide and fall their way to a £10,000 cash prize.

Only the three fastest will make it to the final – battling against the might of the Big Red Balls, the bone jarring Crash Mountain and the infamous Dizzy Dummies to get there.

Fans can enjoy the show from Saturday 8 August at 7.10pm on BBC One.
