Freddie Down Under
Freddie Flintoff is embarking on an epic new adventure travelling over 16,000 kilometres to Australia. The show has him travelling Australia with his sidekick – the journalist, extreme cyclist and tree lover Rob Penn – in a lime-green van called Flintoff’s BBQ Joint, seeing the sites, meeting the characters and consuming some epic meals.
They start their adventure in the dusty outback, visiting the eerie opal mining town of Coober Pedy. It’s so hot here that most of the residents live underground.
On Australia’s east coast, Freddie and Rob prepare to swim with sharks before spending the night in an unusual camping spot – suspended over a cliff edge.
Andrew Flintoff and Rob Penn go up against one of Australia’s deadliest beasts when they sign up to a day of snake-catching. Later, a disaster throws their trip into jeopardy.
Andrew Flintoff and Rob Penn head to the Northern Territory capital Darwin, where they get up close and personal with a crocodile at feeding time. Plus, can they survive a night in one of Australia’s most notorious jails?
Freddie stitches Rob up when he signs him up to perform in a drag act. How will Rob exact his revenge? Plus Freddie practises his bowl at Melbourne Cricket Club.
