Darren Gough has taken the highest number of wickets for England in One Day Internationals but he is probably best known for his success on the UK reality show “Strictly Come Dancing”.
In episode 1 of this documentary-style series, Gough accompanies his former team-mate Andrew Flintoff on an adrenaline fuelled “War of the Roses”, pitting the towering Lancastrian against the mouthy Yorkshireman.
If you ever wondered how it would feel to have a paintballing match at 14,000 ft, what Darren Gough would look like in a Nacho Libre wrestling outfit, or whether Andrew Flintoff will don a pair of speedos for a cliff dive, all will be revealed in this light-hearted competition between the two cricketers.
“Freddie Flintoff vs The World” airs at 9pm on Tuesday 25th January 2011 on ITV4 in the UK only.
