Freddie Flintoff is said to be undecided about returning to 'Top Gear'.

The former cricketer was airlifted to hospital in December after being involved in a horror smash at the show’s test track at Dunsfold Aerodrome in Surrey and insiders have claimed that Freddie, 45, is considering his future on the show.

A source alleged to The Times newspaper that Freddie is "psychologically traumatised" from the crash.

Meanwhile, Freddie's son Corey, 16, said his dad was "lucky to be alive" after his 'Top Gear' crash.

Corey told MailOnline: "He's OK. I'm not too sure what happened but he is lucky to be alive.

"It was a pretty nasty crash. It is shocking. We are all shocked but just hope he's going to be OK."

And, a spokesman for 'Top Gear' confirmed the incident was being "fully investigated" to see what went wrong.

They said: "Our primary concern is the welfare of Freddie - as well as the 'Top Gear' team.

"All health and safety procedures were followed on site and the incident is now being fully investigated in line with standard policy and procedure."

Freddie became a presenter of 'Top Gear' in 2019, and the former England captain was involved in a crash shortly after joining the BBC show.

The incident happened during a drag race involving fellow presenters Paddy McGuinness and Chris Harris.

He said at the time: "I go to great lengths to make sure I do well in 'Top Gear' drag races but, on this occasion, I went a few lengths too far. It will look more ridiculous than dangerous when you see it on TV."
