The BBC will “rest” hit motoring show Top Gear “for the foreseeable future”, following a crash that left host Andrew Flintoff seriously injured.
Production of the show has been halted since former England cricket captain Flintoff, 45, was taken to hospital in December 2022.
In a statement the BBC said: “Given the exceptional circumstances, the BBC has decided to rest the UK show for the foreseeable future.
“The BBC remains committed to Freddie, Chris and Paddy who have been at the heart of the show’s renaissance since 2019, and we’re excited about new projects being developed with each of them.
“We will have more to say in the near future on this. We know resting the show will be disappointing news for fans, but it is the right thing to do.”
“All other Top Gear activity remains unaffected by this hiatus including international formats, digital, magazines and licensing.”
