VIDEO: Freddie Flintoff Vs Lion

Being stranded in the plains of Botswana with only local wildlife for company is not what you'd typically expect a celebrity to be doing in their downtime.

Okay, so if they're being filmed for a TV show then it's slightly easier to understand but still, respect to Freddie Flintoff for braving the outdoors for the new Discovery Channel show Alone in the Wild.

Especially given what happens in this clip. As hard as it is to shake off The Lion King and assume that most lions are in fact musically skilled, kindly sorts, being in close proximity of a real one isn't something we'd probably enjoy.

The new show starts on the Discovery Channel on October 5th at 9pm.
