Clunes dropped from Churchill ads
Men Behaving Badly star, Martin Clunes, has been axed from the Churchill car insurance ads after being banned from driving.
Clunes, 50, who lives in Dorset with his family, is no longer seen to be compatible with the Churchill car insurance brand after reached the 12 point limit on his license. The ads in which Clunes appears along the famous nodding dog will stop after over a year of the campaign.
Speaking to the Daily Mail, a Churchill spokesperson said: “A spokesman for Churchill said: ‘We have worked with Martin Clunes in a brand advertising campaign since December 2011.”
‘Martin Clunes recently informed the insurance company that his driving licence has been suspended after he accumulated penalty points for four speeding offences.”
The brand currently has no adverts with Martin Clunes on air and will be moving forward with new advertising in the New Year.
The details of the driving offences are not currently known.
