The Grand Tour will be remaining in the UK for its next special due to the COVID-19 pandemic.

Jeremy Clarkson, Richard Hammond and James May were forced to stay in the UK for their latest Amazon Prime Video episode, as they travelled all across Scotland.

The trio and their producer Andy Wilman went right to work on a follow-up, with Wilman confirming now that another special will be set in Wales to "keep the wheels turning for a while" (via The Radio Times).

The Grand Tour producer admitted planning filming for autumn and early next year is now getting complicated since travel restrictions are being frequently revised by the UK government.

"It's one of the big nightmares it is. We chose a country, I won't say which one we chose, but we were working on a story in a country which was an amber country, so we could have gone to it, and then it went red just a few days ago, so back to the drawing board," he said.

"It is very tricky at the moment to be able to say because we need three or four months to set up a big foreign job and it's not really well us planning and spending hundreds and thousands of pounds setting up all of these fields, and then all of a sudden somebody says, 'Oh well, we can't go there now' so we are facing some difficulties."

For now, a July 30 special on Prime Video will feature the lads challenging one another in a race from Edinburgh to the Outer Hebrides using only American cars.

There are no official details yet on what the Wales special will entail, nor has there been any confirmation about what is in the plans for The Grand Tour beyond this year.

The Grand Tour will premiere 'Lochdown' on Friday, July 30 on Amazon Prime Video.
