Banned Clunes axed from ad

Actor Martin Clunes has been dropped from a car insurance campaign after being disqualified from driving.

The Men Behaving Badly and Doc Martin star had featured in Churchill Insurance’s television adverts alongside the company’s trademark nodding dog for almost a year.

But it is understood the 50-year-old, who lives with his family in Dorset, was deemed no longer compatible with car insurance advertising after he had reached 12 points on his licence for speeding offences and was banned by magistrates.
