Freddie appeared on good form when he posed for a picture with Subhajit Naskar at the Cricket Association of Bengal on Tuesday.

The former cricketer has been on the mend for more than a year after he was involved in a serious car crash while filming Top Gear in December 2022.

A source told The Sun: "Everyone is thrilled Freddie is gearing up to get back to work.

"We know how much this series means to him. It was a passion project that was loved by the viewers, so it's great it will mark his return."

More than six months later his injuries looks significantly more healed.

The crash took place when his three-wheel Morgan Super 3 car flipped over, leaving him with severe facial injuries and broken ribs.

Top Gear was paused for the 'foreseeable future' and Flintoff negotiated a £9million settlement with the corporation.

A source told The Sun of his return to filming: "This will be a huge comfort to his fans because it shows he's healing well and returning to two of his greatest passions — sport and television.

"It's obvious that there is some scarring, which everyone expected, but Freddie looks to have made huge progress since he was last seen in public playing cricket.

"He's clearly comfortable enough to get in front of a camera again — something which was not the case this time last year.

"They're nervous first steps, as he's recovering both mentally and physically, but the TV show he's making is a real passion project for him."
