Andrew “Freddie” Flintoff MBE is an English television and radio presenter and former international cricketer. Flintoff played all forms of the game and was one of the sport’s leading all rounders, a fast medium pace bowler, middle order batsman and slip fielder.
Freddie has been all over social media for the past day after appearing in a television series DNA Journey. His appearance led him to the discovery that his great grandfather was a wanted criminal. That development has left Flintoff utterly shocked, as that was the least of his expectations.
Freddie’s age and early life and education.
Freddie was born on 6th December 1977 in Preston, Lancashire, England. The sports personality is aged 43 as at 2021 when this post was created. Flintoff’s father Colin was a plumber and factory maintenance worker and the captain of Dutton Forshaw second XI cricket team. Andrew attended Greenlands Community Primary School and Ribbleton Hall High School (subsequently renamed City of Preston High School). His first trip abroad at age 14 was to Argentina. At City of Preston High School, he performed well academically, passing nine GCSEs, but he did not want to stay in education and left school at 16. As a boy he played cricket for the Lancashire Schools under-11s and under-15s teams and he was also a keen chess player. He then played for two and a half years in the England under-19 team.
