Paddy McGuinness ‘nearly died’ after taking on most dangerous Top Gear stunt yet

September 30, 2020

Paddy McGuinness revealed that he "nearly died" while taking part in Top Gear 's most dangerous stunt ever.

The 47-year-old television presenter spoke about doing the scary "Wall Of Death" stunt alongside his co-hosts Freddie Flintoff and Chris Harris.

He remarked that the trio put their lives on the line while attempting the famous Wall Of Death, a daredevil carnival sideshow where people go inside a wooden cylinder and are held in place on the wall by gravity as it spins quickly around.

Paddy told Metro.co.uk: "I think this particular season, we all nearly died when we did the Wall of Death."

Telling the publication about the nail-biting moments in season 29, he continued: "There are always risks but there are a lot more rewards. We make it as safe as we possibly can and get on with it.

"I think the nature with the three of us… we are competitive but we also push each other in the right way. No one wants to see anyone gets injured."

Former professional cricketer Freddie added: "They do push the boundaries and there are times, like the Wall Of Death, where you're thinking how on earth do you get a car up there?"

The media personality continued: "We do some dangerous stuff but it's collective. We all want each other to do well."

Viewers will have to wait and see the three presenters take on the terrifying Wall Of Death in the new series.

McGuinness and Flintoff also told the publication in the past that they avoid telling their wives about the perilous stunts they undergo on the show.

Paddy said: "If you do mention it they'll plant seeds of doubt in your head telling you how dangerous it is.

"We're aware of that and that's not what you want to hear before you take something on."

Top Gear returns Sunday 4th October at 8pm on BBC One.
