Freddie Flintoff 'reveals BBC future with new series of popular show'

Freddie Flintoff has reportedly signed up for a third series of 'Field of Dreams'.

The 46-year-old actor has already announced a second innings of his BBC cricket documentary, which will mark his first TV project since suffering horrific injuries in a terrifying car crash while filming 'Top Gear' in 2022.

As reported by The Sun newspaper's TVBiz column, Freddie has already agreed to front another series.

An insider said: "This shows that Freddie isn’t just happy to return to the show, which is very close to his heart, but also that he’s quite happy to continue working long-term on programmes for the Beeb."

Meanwhile, it's believed that the former cricketer is open to "other projects" being pitched by the broadcaster, although he's not rushing into any decisions.

The source added: “It’s understood that, in addition to making the third series, he’s also considering a string of other projects they have offered him, but he’s taking his time and considering them all carefully.”

'Field of Dreams' sees the former England captain attempting to turn a group of teenagers from his hometown of Preston into a competitive cricket team.

Freddie stepped away from the spotlight after sustaining facial injuries and broken ribs in the crash which ultimately led to 'Top Gear' being shelved.

It was reported last month that Freddie was taking "nervous first steps" back into TV as he filmed for 'Field of Dreams'.

Meanwhile, his former 'Top Gear' co-hosts Paddy McGuinness and Chris Harris are set to reunite for the new series 'Chris + Paddy: Roadtrip' , that will see the pair travelling around Europe.

However, BBC bosses don't see the programme as a continuation of the iconic car show.

An insider told The Sun: “This is a brand new travelogue show for Paddy and Chris. The duo will travel across Europe, using various modes of transport, visiting people to find the secrets to wellness and happiness — no stunts, no car reviews.”
