Andrew Flintoff likely to sue BBC Top Gear for horrible crash
Former England all-rounder Andrew Flintoff may look to pursue legal action against BBC’s Top Gear. He has taken a break from his TV career and is free to pursue legal action. Flintoff sustained multiple injuries in December last year. After the incident, he wanted to continue with the show but his loved ones insisted on taking a break from TV.
Meanwhile, a legal expert has reportedly told that if the former cricketer decides to pursue a case, it might be for compensation for lost earnings and medical costs. On the other hand, the expert added that Flintoff might not take the legal route out of resentment.
A legal expert told the UK tabloid, The Sun: “If he decides to sue the makers of the show, BBC Studios, then it will probably be to compensate him for lost earnings and possibly any medical costs.”
“It’s unlikely to be done out of any resentment to the Beeb, as Freddie has become a hugely popular star through the shows he’s made with them, and has more shows in the pipeline.”
“He may even quickly reach a settlement that allows him to put this behind him and move on with his life and career.”
Andrew Flintoff still committed to produce “The Repair Shop for motors”
Despite the reported legal route, the 2005 Ashes winner is still committed to producing the BBC1 documentary Field of Dreams. Also, he wants to produce BBC2 dubbed “The Repair Shop for motors.” Meanwhile, he started his TV career in 2019 with Top gear. Notably, in the first year of his joining, Andrew sustained a 125 mph crash (201.168 kmph to be precise). However, he walked away from the incident and claimed that he was fine. After the incident, he had said “I go to great lengths to make sure I do well in Top Gear drag races but, on this occasion, I went a few lengths too far. It will look more ridiculous than dangerous when you see it on TV.”
