Clarkson who?


The real star of Top Gear has landed a hot new gig.

The mystery man in the crash helmet known simply as The Stig will join a new BBC entertainment show airing on Saturday nights.

Dermot O’Leary will host Getaway Car, scheduled for 12 episodes, with The Stig setting lap times for a range of top cars that will be showcased and tested on the programme.
