Guy, who in the past year has set a new speed record in a Wall of Death challenge, is still looking for his first TT victory, having finished on the podium 15 times.

The TV star missed the 2016 race to compete in the Tour Divide mountain bike race in the United States.

Last year he also attempted to break the world speed record on a hydrofoil on the Brayford Pool in Lincoln.
