Andrew Flintoff may be a millionaire but that didn’t stop him from complaining about having to pay 4 pounds to see his daughter’s school play.
He has been known to use half-price vouchers while eating at a restaurant with his wife Rachael and had revealed his that favourite worldwide holiday destination was a cut-price break to Blackpool.
The former England cricketing legend, who moved to Surrey from Lancashire in 2010, was attending the Christmas production at the school of his daughter Holly, seven.
“Just about to watch my daughters school Christmas play, hope it’s good they’ve charged 4 quid a head! Only in Surrey!” the Daily Mail quoted him as tweeting.
“@flintoff11 price of a couple of ready meals!” his friend chef Paul Heathcote tweeted.
The cricketer’s fans too responded to his complaint on twitter.
Fan Richard McElearney tweeted: ‘@flintoff11 you can take the Flintoff out of Lancashire but you cant take Lancashire out of Flintoff. Ha ha.” Fan
Flintoff made a fortune in cricket, including being paid 1.5 million pounds to play in the 2009 Indian Premier League.
Since retiring in September 2010 he has forged a career on television and appeared in a series of adverts for supermarket chain Morrisons. (ANI)
