Flintoff takes to judging sports reality show

Carlyle Laurie

Former England allrounder Andrew Flintoff was last seen globetrotting and eating wallaby for the Discovery channel's Freddie Flintoff Goes Wild. Now, he's set to feature as a celebrity judge on the sports-focussed talent show, Let's Get Gold, which will air on ITV1.

Flintoff will feature alongside footballer Rio Ferdinand, singer Una Healy and actress Martine McCutcheon on the judging panel. The programme will air just ahead of the Olympics, and will give amateur and professional sportspersons a chance to showcase their abilities. Performances are expected to include a variety of sports, and individuals with the most creativity and sporting prowess would stand to win £100,000.

Flintoff said he was looking forward to the challenge. "I'm sure the judging panel will all be looking for something different," Flintoff told the Daily Telegraph. "I can't wait to see what the teams have to show us."
