Collins is Top Gear’s The Stig

THE High Court yesterday refused to ban a book which reveals that Top Gear’s The Stig is racing driver Ben Collins.

After more than a day of legal argument in private, Mr Justice Morgan said he would not grant the BBC a temporary injunction blocking publication of Mr Collins’s autobiography.

Shortly before his ruling, Mr Collins left the courtroom to return home to Bristol where his wife has recently given birth.

Asked by the media if he was The Stig, the 33-year-old James Bond stunt double said he could not talk about it.
