Freddie Flintoff is so unhappy with the quality of fish and chips shops in London that he wants to open his own.
The former England cricketer is in talks with TV producers about a news series, potentially on Sky One, where he runs a chippy in London with wife Rachael.
A source said: 'Freddie isn’t impressed with the quality of fish and chips shops down south and wants to open his own up in London selling market-fresh fish.

'He would be front of house but the business would be run by his wife Rachael, who has a background in catering and events.'
The move would be the latest in Flintoff's post-cricket career after he won on his professional boxing debut in Manchester last year.
Flintoff has been a regular on Sky's A League of Their Own as well as starring in ITV4 series Freddie Flintoff Versus The World.
