Report: Ben Collins fired by BBC, The Stig silently replaced
Ben Collins, who was recently revealed as The Stig on Top Gear, has apparently been fired by BBC and has already been replaced, according to the Mirror. The move comes shortly after BBC has threatened to take legal action against the anonymous driver to prevent him from publishing an autobiography.
The Mirror has published two photos, one of The Stig at an even at Top Gear Live, while the other photo shows Ben Collins playing with his kids… 1,100 miles away.
According to the Mirror:
Our exclusive pictures show the new Stig ““ the show”s “tame racing driver” ““ in trademark white jumpsuit and crash helmet at a Top Gear Live event at the NÃ¼rburgring racing circuit in Germany on Friday.
Meanwhile, 1,100 miles away, Collins was snapped pushing his daughters Izzy, three, and Scarlett, 18 months, in toy cars near their home in the West Country.
Either we believe this report or believe that there is more than one Stig.
