ACTOR Simon Pegg has been banned from driving after being caught doing 63mph in a 40mph zone in his Mercedes electric hybrid.
The Shaun Of The Dead star, 50, on a North London dual carriageway in January last year, got a fourth speeding ticket in three years.
Wimbledon magistrates gave him four penalty points, taking him to 13, and disqualified him for six months.
He was also fined £660 with £85 costs.
Pegg admitted one charge of speeding on the A41 Hendon Way in his three-litre Mercedes.
He did not appear in court.

His lawyer Richard Saynor said: “Mr Pegg pleads guilty and takes full responsibility.
“He does not want to use up court time arguing exceptional circumstances.
“The ban will cause him difficulties but they will not be exceptional. It is something he deeply regrets and he wants to apologise to others effected by his ban.”
