Former Stig Ben Collins would love to join either the revamped version of 'Top Gear' or Jeremy Clarkson, Richard Hammond and James May's forthcoming new motoring show

Ben Collins wants to return to 'Top Gear'.

The 40-year-old stunt driver - who left his position as masked racer The Stig in 2010 after his identity was revealed - is keen to be a part of either the revamped series of the BBC motoring show or former hosts Jeremy Clarkson, James May and Richard Hammond's forthcoming programme on Amazon.

Asked if he'd be interested in either show, he said: "I would love to but I've not heard anything about that but I'll wait and see.

"Who knows what the future will hold but I'll be in and out of a car doing what I love doing most. "

Ben is still in touch with Jeremy, Richard and James and enjoyed working with them recently on 'Top Gear Live'.

He exclusively told BANG Showbiz: "We did quite a fun thing where they are pretending to be out of a job and the car presenters find me in a garage as a kind of dialect, tramp figure and drag me into driving the cars for them.

"That was quite fun. I got to work with them a few months ago and I had a great time."
