Martin Clunes adjusts to new pace
Martin Clunes has said he's getting used to life in the slow lane since his driving ban.
The Doc Martin star, who owns a farm, was axed as the face of Churchill Insurance after knocking up 12 points on his licence for speeding.
But two Clydesdale horses, Ronnie and Bruce, have provided him with a new - but slower - mode of transport.
"If anyone had told me 10 years ago that I would have my own farm, and be driving a cart pulled by two Clydesdales, I would have laughed in their face.
"I just didn't see it coming," the actor said of life on the farm.
He added: "I found this new speed quite shocking to begin with, very slow. But I've turned 51 recently and I have a six-month ban on my driving licence, and this speed could be my future, staring at my horses' bums as they plod me around the countryside."
Martin, who has been filming a two-part documentary about working horses for ITV, added: "It's quite a nice way to go."
