The first episode of Jeremy Clarkson’s new Amazon show was a massive hit with his millions of fans on Friday night – but, as ever, there was more than a little whiff of controversy.
It’s safe to say that the beginning of 2016 was dominated with reports that the new version of Top Gear, fronted by Chris Evans, was facing new struggles and setbacks on what seemed to be a daily basis. Now it has been revealed that original Top Gear trio, Jeremy Clarkson, James May and Richard Hammond, weren’t having a much smoother ride whilst filming their new car programme, The Grand Tour, with it being revealed that May almost died during film. Speaking about his close encounter, James explained: “I thought I would drown.
Jeremy Clarkson has expressed fears that the BBC could launch a legal case against his new Amazon Prime show, The Grand Tour, for imitating the Top Gear format. The programme, which he presents alongside fellow former Top Gear hosts Richard Hammond and James May, faced potential legal issues over BBC restrictions on intellectual property rights. Writing in The Sunday Times Magazine, Clarkson revealed that dozens of prospective names for The Grand Tour were rejected for being too similar to the BBC’s stunt-filled show, but then expressed his concerns over their use of a test track – aka an essential requirement of any car show.
According to Jeremy Clarkson, it’s because it made all those balding, middle-aged blokes watching at home feel better about their bad teeth expanding waistlines. “What worries me most is that everyone is expecting Avengers Assemble, that people think we’ve made something between the new Star Wars movie and Iron Man. “It is just three middle-aged men doing what they’ve always done – drive cars around corners, shout, fall over, belittle each other, bicker.
It’s been over a year since Jeremy Clarkson, Richard Hammond and James May stepped down from Top Gear, and revealed that they would be creating a new motor series for Amazon Prime.
James May broke his arm while filming Amazon’s new motoring show The Grand Tour. The former Top Gear co-host – who has reunited with colleagues Jeremy Clarkson and Richard Hammond on the new show – wasn’t caught up in a car crash or daring stunt, but rather took a serious tumble out of a pub instead. Speaking at the Edinburgh International TV Festival, executive producer Andy Wilman revealed that the presenter, 53, phoned him the night before filming started to inform him of the accident that occurred during a night out.
The BBC’s former director-general has admitted that the broadcaster should not have fired Jeremy Clarkson because he was someone that they could “ill afford” to lose. Clarkson, 56, was fired from the motoring programme in March of last year after he punched one of its producers in a ‘fracas’ over a cold meat platter, with co-hosts James May and Richard Hammond later quitting in solidarity.
In anticipation of the former Top Gear trio’s new motoring show, Jeremy Clarkson has unveiled the official logo for the series, which will be released on Amazon Prime this autumn. As there is very little going on at the moment, I thought you’d like to see our new Grand Tour logo,” Jeremy tweeted while jokingly referencing all of the fallout from the recent EU Referendum result.
Jeremy Clarkson, Richard Hammond and James May have finally decided on a name for their new Amazon car show, and we have to admit, we’re disappointed that they didn’t go for our suggestion of ‘Top Gear 2’. The trio’s struggle to come up with a name had reportedly halted the production of the show, which they were signed to after the BBC fired Jeremy following a 'fracas’ last year. James admitted that he wanted to go for a much simpler name like 'Nigel’ or 'Roger’, but thankfully Richard was completely on board, adding: “I already love camping but this is something else.
Jeremy Clarkson has announced he’s never used Amazon’s services despite them handing him a fortune for his upcoming Top Gear-style series.
