Martin Clunes dropped by Churchill after driving ban
Martin Clunes has been the star of some bewildering Churchill adverts for some time now. They're not even the worst comedic turn he's done, as anyone who has seen Men Behaving Badly will testify.
However, he's pulled a funny as he's been banned from driving for speeding offences, which means he's been dropped from the motoring insurance advertising campaigns.
A spokesman for Churchill said: "Martin Clunes recently informed Churchill Insurance that his driving licence has been suspended after he accumulated penalty points for four speeding offences."
''Churchill Insurance currently has no adverts with Martin Clunes on air and will be moving forward with new advertising in the New Year.''
Churchill have previous. Vic Reeves used to be the voice of the awful animated dog, but he got binned off after he was arrested and charged with drink-driving. And leaving the scene of an accident.
So who will Churchill sign up for their commercials next? Lee Hughes? Mel Gibson?
