I've got some 16mm neg stock in my fridge which I'm not going to use for a few months. I've never stored film for this period. Would I be better of putting it in deep freeze until I wanna use it?

Yep i would stick it in freezer.
If the film can was never untaped, freezing will slow the rate of change even more than refrigeration. But if the can had been opened (e.g., short ends), freezing has more risk of having ice crystals form if the film were not properly equilibrated (too humid) before being recanned.
Frankly, for only a few months storage, I would recommend refrigeration.

The film has never been opened, but I always worry about freezing stock ( next to the ice cream) .
