Flintoff, who joined the show as a presenter in 2019, was airlifted to hospital on 13 December after his open-top Morgan Super 3 three-wheeler overturned and slid down the track while traveling at high speed. He and a crew member in the passenger seat were wearing helmets, Flintoff suffered facial injuries and broken ribs. He is currently still in recovery.

“In the circumstances, we believe it would be inappropriate to continue production of Top Gear Series 34 at this time,” a spokesperson for the broadcaster said. “We understand this will be disappointing for the fans, but it’s the right thing to do and we’ll decide how best to proceed later this year.”
Flintoff has already had one high-speed crash while filming the show. In 2019, he crashed another three-wheeler at a speed of over 200 km/h, but managed to leave the scene of the accident.
After a period of instability for the famous motoring show due to the departure of long-term presenters Jeremy Clarkson, James May and Richard Hammond, the show seemed to find its rhythm with Flintoff and two other presenters, Chris Harris and Paddy McGuinness.
