Paddy McGuinness has said he is "gutted" in a social media update he shared from Sweden on Saturday.

The TV star, 50, is known for his roles on hit shows Top Gear and Take Me Out. He and fellow Top Gear host Chris Harris were reported to have bagged a European Roadtrip series earlier this year, and sure enough they have been filmed together in Sweden this week.

Paddy shared a clip of himself and Chris in a boat on a lake. He said: "Good luck to Bolton Wanderers and roll on the boxing tonight.

"I can't be with you, I'm in Sweden, with him, on a lake. Let's go, hydrofoil baby!"

Captioning the Instagram update, the dad-of-three added: "Gutted I’m not back in time for the playoffs!!! Good luck to the mighty @officialbwfc and roll on the boxin! Home tomorrow!!! #weekend #playoffs #boxing #sweden" [sic]

Fans have been quick to respond as Peter said: "Fantastic to see you and Chris back together. Is this for the new road trip series? It would be great if Freddie could be part of this series or maybe the next series. You three were absolutely fantastic as TG hosts. Let's hope TG does return in the future or even a few specials".

Zoe said: "Great to see you back together" and Phil said: "Great to see you with Chris, another legend".
