An Evening with Freddie Flintoff

Posted on - 3rd March, 2013 - 10:43am | Author - | Posted in - What's On in Preston



Want to know what Preston sporting hero Freddie Flintoff is up to to these days? No, well I’ll tell you anyway.

Andrew ‘Freddie’ Flintoff MBE is hosting a few ‘An Evening With…’ shows in March. The nearest event will be at the Palace Hotel in Manchester on 16 March and will be a  Sports Dinner with a charity raffle and sports memorabilia auction. Tickets are available and range from £60 – £100.

It’s rare opportunity to see Freddie as he does not usually do after dinner events. But it will be a great opportunity to hear first hand about the ‘pedalo incident’ his boxing debut and his infamous visit to downing street. There will also be professional photo opportunities.

Freddie, the former Lancashire and England cricketer turned boxer, has also recently unveiled a second menswear collection for Manchester-based label Jacamo.

Freddie says about his  collection: “While my stuff isn’t depicting high fashion, it’s the sort of stuff I’d wear. I wear things that I feel comfortable in to be honest, I don’t follow what’s in fashion or the latest trends I just like to go out feeling comfortable and my line reflects this”.

Available now at Jacamo is Flintoff by Jacamo, the Spring/Summer collection.

Flintoff is also to re-appear in series 7 of the Sky 1 HD hit panel game show A League of Their Own.

Hosted by James Corden and with teams consisting of Flintoff, football legend Jamie Redknapp, comedian Jack Whitehall, it’s a sporting rivalry fun-filled show. Filming of 8 new episodes for series 7 takes place at the BBC Elstree studios, Borehamwood from 11 March.

The show features a whole host of comedians and famous faces lined up for whacky stunts hidden up Corden’s sleeve.

According to Wikipedia, Sharon Lougher and Larushka Ivan-Zadeh of Metro said the show is: “basically, A Question Of Sport for idiots…the televisual equivalent of Nuts magazine”.

The seventh series of A League Of Their Own will be showing on Sky 1 HD (Sky channel 106) and Sky 1 (Sky channel 170) this summer.
