In the photo there are eight young men and some very questionable double denim outfits.

What did fans say?

His fans loved the photo, with many making jokes about the style and of course the haircuts.

One person replied: "Simon Cowell wants his jeans back! Great photo x."

Another said: "It was all about the turn ups and baggy jeans, Paddy!"

Someone else commented on the big brands back in the day, writing: "Kitted out from Stolen From Ivor in Joe Bloggs jeans on there!"

Some quoted a line from Paddy and Peter Kay's iconic comedy Phoenix Nights, saying: "Who's that? The Fonz?"

Paddy might have been getting nostalgic after a nasty accident while filming Top Gear a few weeks back.

Car crash on set

Upon his return to the show, he crashed a £250k Lamborghini Diablo on set.

The presenter lost control of the car on Tuesday, June 16 when it slipped on oil as he filmed the BBC car show in North Yorkshire.

However, it didn't take long for Paddy to get "back on the saddle", with him returning to the scene of the crash the following day.

He said in a video: "Hello there, back filming again today with Top Gear.

"I thought I would show you the Diablo, it's back there on a low-loader. Gutted. Can you see the damage underneath there?

"Hopefully fingers crossed we can get back on the road. It wasn't as bad as it was made out yesterday to be, honest.

"But it goes to show you, a little bit of oil on the wet road, lethal. I was only doing about 32mph. We live to fight another day."

It's believed Paddy's co-stars Freddie Flintoff and Chris Harris were not on set at the time of the crash.
