Top Gear presenters Richard Hammond, Jeremy Clarkson and James May are set to feature in US animated comedy Phineas And Ferb.

The stars will voice racing commentators in Live And Let Drive, a forthcoming episode of the kids' TV show.

"I couldn't say yes quickly enough. I did Phineas and Ferb as a way of impressing my children. They think I've done something cool for once!" said Richard.

"Impressing my girls as a bloke off a car show is impossible. They are not impressed by fancy cars or motorcycles or me flying a helicopter or any of the things I like doing.

"They have grown up with having a dad on the telly, it has always been the case for them, so there's little novelty in it for them, but when it's a show that they watch independently of my being in it and then I crop up on it, that's much cooler."

Richard will also follow in the footsteps of David Beckham and Selena Gomez by starring in Phineas And Ferb's spin-off show.

The animated comedy duo interview the pint-sized car enthusiast on "humorous and wacky topics" in Take Two With Phineas And Ferb, which will air on Disney XD on May 16 in the UK.

Previous guests on the spin-off series include Becks, Selena, Taylor Swift and Jack Black.

Lorraine Kelly, Simon Pegg, Lenny Henry, Jonathan Ross and David Mitchell have previously voiced characters on the Disney XD comedy.

Your Horoscopes by Russell Grant

Aquarius:

This is a great time to go shopping. You'll find some clothes, furniture or artwork that seems tailor made to your taste. Don't worry about spending more money than usual. The things you buy will give you years of pleasure. If you're looking for work, volunteer at a charitable organisation that is close to your heart. This will lead to a paying position that is emotionally fulfilling. You're tired of dead end jobs that leave you cold. It's time to move in a more rewarding direction.More
