Freddie Flintoff set for TV return after near-fatal Top Gear crash left him with horror injuries

Freddie Flintoff is set to make a TV comeback after suffering horrific injuries in a car crash while filming Top Gear.

Following his terrifying accident on the BBC show in December, which left him with fractured ribs and severe face injuries, the TV star took a break from TV work while he recovered.

This winter, Freddie will return to screens to film the second season of his cricket series Field of Dreams.

The series see’s Freddie return to his home town for the sporting challenge of a lifetime.


Along the way he attempts to inspire unlikely teens to give cricket a chance – but he does face some challenges.

Freddie Flintoff’s Field of Dreams has three episodes. After only a few short weeks of practise, Freddie and the team play their first actual game in the first episode.

It comes after Flintoff was pictured back with pals on the cricket pitch this week — nine months after cheating death in his Top Gear horror smash.

The 45-year-old star, who suffered facial injuries and broken ribs in the 130mph crash, was ­pictured helping to coach the England team in Cardiff in their match against New Zealand.


One-day captain Jos Buttler said: “He’s a legend and it’s great to have him around.”

He was also seen chatting to bowling coach David Saker as they strolled off the field.

Freddie narrowly escaped death after driving an open-topped three-wheel Morgan Super 3 for the BBC motor show last December at Dunsfold Park Aerodrome in Surrey.

But nine months on, he was seen leading fielding drills in the warm-up for a one-day showdown at Cardiff’s Sophia Gardens.


Flintoff, who took 226 wickets for England, wore a catching mitt as he received balls from bowlers Reece Topley and Gus Atkinson.

Freddie was later snapped sitting alongside stars Joe Root and Ben Stokes on the players’ balcony during England’s innings.

At times, the star was wearing dark glasses and an England-branded bucket hat.

It was understood he is helping out the side as an unpaid consultant and is not an official member of the coaching lineup.
