Piers Morgan shares an update on Freddie Flintoff after the Top Gear accident

Andrew Flintoff is “recovering” from an accident while filming Top Gear, according to friend and colleague Piers Morgan.

Flintoff was injured in an incident at the program’s test track at Dunsfold Aerodrome in Surrey on Tuesday morning, with the BBC confirming he was taken to hospital for treatment.

The 45-year-old has enjoyed a successful television career since retiring and began hosting the auto show in 2019.

Piers Morgan, a friend of Flintoff, said he’s been in touch with the family and offered an optimistic outlook.

“I’ve been told it was a pretty bad fall and that Freddie will be fine, but it might be a bit more serious than first thought,” he told talkSPORT.

“I’ve been told he’ll be fine, which is great news, but I’ve also been told it’s been quite a nasty bang and he’s had surgery and is now recovering and we’ll have to wait and see.

“I’ve been in touch with them privately but I just want to wish him and his family, Rachel his wife, the very best and I think we’re all just crossing our fingers that the big man pulls through well. ”

While many now know Flintoff for his TV work, he is still best remembered for his time as an all-rounder, particularly during the unforgettable Ashes win in 2005.

He continued to lead his country, finishing with 79 Test matches and 148 caps with limited surpluses.



The England team is in their squad room and they’re a little worried. Fingers crossed that Freddie is okay. He’s a larger than life character.

Commenting on the ongoing tour of Pakistan, one of his predecessors as England skipper Nasser Hussain reported that Ben Stokes’ team have had Flintoff on their mind since hearing the news.

He told Sky Sports News: “We’ve been following it out here and trying to get in touch with Freddie’s agent and the people around Freddie.

“The England team is in their squad room and they’re a little worried. Fingers crossed that Freddie is okay. He’s a larger than life character. Hopefully good news will follow.”

Meanwhile, the Health and Safety Agency has said it is investigating the accident.

“The HSE is aware of this incident and is investigating,” a spokesman said.

HSE is an executive, interdepartmental public body sponsored by the Department for Works and Pensions. It is usual for the BBC to report the incident to the HSE and investigate.
