Top Gear stars for Phineas And Ferb

Richard Hammond and his fellow Top Gear presenters are the latest stars to work on Phineas And Ferb

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

Aries:

Wanderlust may be too powerful to resist. Planning a long holiday will be a pleasant diversion from work. You don't have to have fancy accommodation. You're willing to rough it for an adventure, but you do want to get good value for your money. Doing some research into the best places to stay and eat will pay off handsomely. Take along a friend who is free spirited and eager to explore unfamiliar vistas. The two of you will make great travelling companions.More
