It seems that an elaborate hoax is taking over the BBC this afternoon. Apparently the Stig, who often appears on the top television show ‘Top Gear,’ was seen driving a Porsche, followed by a convoy of Top Gear labelled Range Rovers. Not only that, he then pulled into a petrol station where a fan, who had noticed this ever-so-extraordinary being driving along the M55, managed to snap a picture with him(her? it?)!
Although the ‘Stig’ was witnessed in the full uniform, with bodyguards and a crew following, BBC are denying that this was the nameless Top Gear star. They are undertaking a full investigation, with a BBC Spokeswoman saying ‘It would appear there is an imposter going round pretending to be the Stig…he is nothing to do with the television programme.’
Some say he’s got a lot of time on his hands. All we know is, he’s not the Stig!
