Freddie Flintoff Has Baggy Issues


What he said:

“I don’t accessorise and I don’t have a man bag.”

Freddie Flintoff claims he’s not one to go down the metrosexual route, unlike some of his teammates. The former England all-rounder was at the fashion shoot of Jacamo. Flintoff is its new face.

Flintoff added:

Rachael bought me a 'weekender' bag last year, but it’s the worst present I’ve ever had. Expensive, but wasted on me. I just use a sports bag.

Flintoff on his teammates:

It got a bit daft. After a day’s play the hair straighteners, moisturisers and grooming kits were coming out… I’m ’aving none of that.


What he really meant:

“Nice clothes, that’s all I need. And a sports bag.”


What he definitely didn’t:

“Now, if I had a girl like Liz Hurley, I’d reconsider.”
