Tim says Auf Wiedersehen to his licence
ACTOR Tim Healy has been fined and hit with a driving ban after admitting doing more than TWICE the speed limit.
The 59-year-old, who starred in Auf Wiedersehen Pet and Benidorm, was caught in his Jaguar XKR doing 61mph through a 30mph zone on the A68 near Crook, Co Durham, on May 14.
He received a seven day ban after admitting the offence at Newton Aycliffe Magistrates’ Court.
Healy, from Stocksfield, Northumberland, was also given a £500 fine with £100 costs.
The TV star, who is married to Loose Women presenter Denise Welch, hit the headlines earlier this year for defending his wife after she got a scathing review from Dancing On Ice judge Jason Gardiner.
The actor, originally from Benwell in Newcastle, confronted Gardner live on the show after he was unflattering about her performance.
