Freddie Flintoff 'to make TV comeback' following horror Top Gear crash

Freddie Flintoff has been tipped to make his TV comeback following his horrific crash on Top Gear which brought the show's production to a halt.

The former England cricketer has since been spotted in public though the future of Top Gear is exceedingly uncertain.

There had been claims that the BBC would be wrapping things up as far as Top Gear was concerned, though the broadcaster has claimed that a decision has not yet been made.

They said: "A decision on the timing of future Top Gear shows will be made in due course with BBC Content."

With so much uncertainty over Top Gear, it might be nice for fans of Flintoff to know that they will see him make a comeback on telly.

He's set to return for a second series of Field of Dreams, the show which sees Flintoff scouring his native Preston for signs up potential cricket talent.

However, according to The Sun even if he doesn't continue with Top Gear, he could attempt to bring back renovation show Chasing Cars.

It's described as 'The Repair Show meets Top Gear' and Flintoff does love his cars, so it could be a way for him to carry on working with them on TV in a slightly less dangerous environment than he previously was.

They also report that Flintoff is in 'in discussions with producers about other projects' so we've by no means seen the last of him on our screens.

Sadly for those hoping this is going to be the green light for a Top Gear comeback, Flintoff may not want to return to the show.

In his first public speech since last year's accident, people were impressed by Flintoff's words of support while presenting Tom Hartley with an international cap.

In his speech he said: "It gives me so much pleasure to share what's going to be a day Tom that you're going to remember for the rest of your life.

"When you get this cap, this changes your life. It's one of those things, it's before and after it.

“This enables you to walk tall and move faster. Play with passion, play with pride, play with belief. And also part of a family of people.

"They'll share the good times with you, share the successes. But as I found over the past few months, they'll be there for you in the hardest times of your life.

"They will stand next to you. So, like the lion on the cap Tom, be brave, be, fearless, be proud and enjoy every minute."

LADbible has contacted Flintoff's representatives for comment.
