Andrew Flintoff could resume his TV career

The 45-year-old star suffered serious injuries after flipping an open-topped car while shooting a 'Top Gear' feature in December, but he's now plotting his TV comeback, after taking some time away to recover.

A source told The Sun newspaper: "Freddie is a hugely popular TV star and any channel or streamer would be thrilled to sign up one of his shows.

"His return to the limelight is something both telly execs and the public have been longing for and thankfully he now seems ready to return to doing what he loves."

The former England cricket captain recently enjoyed a coaching stint with the national team.

But Freddie remains committed to his TV career and he could even revive 'Chasing Cars', a stalled BBC show that's been described as a mix between 'Top Gear' and 'The Repair Shop'.

The insider added: "He just needs to get past the one year anniversary of the crash, then he can focus on the next chapter of his career. He’s already in talks about what he wants to work on in 2024 and beyond."

By contrast, David Lloyd, the former England coach, recently suggested that Freddie might turn his back on his TV career and return to cricket full time.

David, 76 - who coached Freddie in the 90s - told the Guardian newspaper: "I think that’s the way he’s looking. He’s done telly, he’s done boxing. This is a perfect time for him to come back. I’m a big advocate for iconic players like that to spend some time away from the game and then come back."
