ANGRY fans have demanded that Ben Collins be sacked after he was revealed as UK Top Gear's The Stig.


How pathetic, who cares......he drives fast, all that matters

Exactly. Who the hell cares? Just the die hard Top Gear fans it seems.

Does that mean, someone could ask the fans, that because the identity of The Stig has now been revealed, Top Gear will not be as interesting as it once was? Will all the fans be turning off in droves?

The show has been going since 1977 and these days has a very strong following, so I don't think too many people on the show will be worried about losing a few fans.

I think people were hoping it would be someone famous that we had actually heard of. Someone like an ex formula 1 racer. Now that he is out, they will need a new stig, and he has probably lost a good income.

The BBC tried to keep The Stig’s identity under wraps, but lost its battle in the high court. Publishing group HarperCollins, who is publishing Coliins' autobiography, said it was disappointing the BBC had tried to suppress the book.

Hmm trying to get a few more book sales I think.

It has been a tradition in the past for the Stig to be replaced when his identity is revealed, but people shouldn't get crazy about it...
