Top Gear’s Paddy McGuinness in stitches after crashing into co-hosts during high-speed race on ski slope

Paddy McGuinness crashed into his co-hosts during a high-speed race on a ski slope during tonight’s Top Gear.

And he found it pretty hilarious.

To celebrate the joy of rental cars, the presenters went on a fly-drive holiday to the island of Cyprus, home of the cheapest hire cars in Europe.

Paddy McGuinness, Freddie Flintoff and Chris Harris, were each given 30 Euros to hire a car for the weekend, before they embarked on a series of challenges.

During one of the tasks, the trio had to race against each other down a ski slope.

Telling his pals what they had to do, Paddy explained: ‘Hire cars are not just for summer, they are for winter too.

‘To test your cars’ performance, you will now race around the Mount Olympus Ski Resort.’

To try and protect their rentals from further damage, the hosts used various safety precautions in an attempt to keep them scratch and dent free.

Paddy decided to wrap his car with inflatable lilos, Freddie used boat buoys, while Chris thought wrapping his car bubble wrap was a good idea.

Things started out well for Freddie, who was driving a Suzuki Jimny, although Paddy clearly wasn’t having any of it.

Soon, he’d caught up with him and Chris – and rammed into them both.

As Paddy overtook his co-hosts, he laughed the entire way down the ski slope right to the finish line.

‘I got it, I am through,’ he laughed. ‘First place.’

Poor Freddie wasn’t happy though, and said: ‘You’re going the wrong way, that’s cheating.’

Elsewhere on tonight’s episode, the trio raced around a track in 40-degree heat through oncoming traffic.

Paddy and Chris also put family cars to the test. Chris thought an estate was the best family car, while Paddy went for an SUV. Specifically, the very fast, very powerful Lamborghini Urus SUV.

To settle the argument, they reported to the Top Gear test track to find out which was the fastest on the school run, and which could tow a caravan the quickest.

Top Gear airs on Sunday at 8pm on BBC Two.
