Top Gear - Bishop Tutu is The Stig video

Car News

But in Sydney today Top Gear host Jeremy Clarkson revealed who The Stig really is under the white race suit -- Archbishop Desmond Tutu.

Asked by whether there was any point in The Stig continuing to wear a black visor, and what would replace the line ``All we know is he’s called The Stig’’ – now we know what he’s called, Clarkson deflected the question.

``You think The Stig is a man in Bristol who lives in a pebblecrete house. This poor man is terrified as being outed as The Stig, so I may as well tell you who it is … Archbishop Desmond Tutu

During the press conference to promote their show, Clarkson also commented on how “terrified” Prime Minister Kevin Rudd looked on TV last night during his address to the nation on the state of the economy.

“I’ve never seen such a nervous man. It’s the first time we’ve seen a world leader admit we really are in deep s---.

“He genuinely looked terrified.”

The star also admitted he had a crush on Aussie feminist Germaine Greer.

“She’s still attractive … she’s a good looking woman,” she said.
