Andrew “Freddie” Flintoff was quick to hit back at Chris Harris on Top Gear tonight after he compared his teeth to those of “a rat”. The former England cricketer and Chris got involved in some light-hearted banter when the latter finished a segment on the BBC Two show about lower priced cars.
Paddy McGuinness praised his co-star for the feature, saying: “I am always impressed with your top quality scurrying.
“You scurry with the best of them.”
Freddie then took the opportunity to joke about Paddy’s remark, adding: “When it comes to scurrying, I reckon he is the best.
“You’re like a little mouse, who knows a bit too much about cars.”

Following Freddie’s mouse jibe, Chris issued his own swipe, replying: “If you lend me those teeth, I could be a rat.”
The studio audience groaned at the surprising swipe, as Paddy gasped in shock.
Freddie seemed to take the comment to heart, as he stared downheartedly at the ground.
“Better move on,” Paddy awkwardly chimed, before introducing studio guests Laurence and Emilia Fox.
