A spokesman for the firm said: "Martin Clunes recently informed Churchill Insurance that his driving licence has been suspended after he accumulated penalty points for four speeding offences."

"Churchill Insurance currently has no adverts with Martin Clunes on air and will be moving forward with new advertising in the New Year," it continued.
