Cooper D reving faster than engine speed

My 2007 cooper D has just started this problem, it has 106,000 mile and is a manual.

It doesn't matter what gear I'm in if I floor it the revs will increase rapidly to about 4,000 rpm and then settle down. Even though the speed is only increasing slowly. Obviously it's most noticeable when in 6th gear doing about 50 and put my foot down and the revs go sky high but the speed does nothing.

Sounds like the clutch has gone?

Typical for clutch slip, at 106000 miles its done quite well.
Get it checked and replaced before its scores the flywheel friction surface or you will need one of those too.
