The Grand Tour: Jeremy Clarkson stars in 'A Massive Hunt' trailer
Jeremy Clarkson spoke candidly about the return of the Amazon Prime series of the Grand Tour alongside James May and Richard Hammond. The former Top Gear presenter opened up about his co-stars as Jeremy addressed the latter’s car accident where the vehicle burst into flames.
The 60-year-old spoke out about the scary crashes as he discussed the show stunts.
Jeremy explained: “You’re asking how I felt about Richard’s crash to which I have to say, ‘Which one?’
“The first accident was a very, very long time ago. It was of course deeply shocking.
“The second one – well, not the second probably the 14th – the big one was actually more alarming.”

Richard has suffered two accidents whilst filming both the Grand Tour and Top Gear respectively.
The second incident was the Rimac crash in Switzerland, where after completing a hill climb run for the Grand Tour Richard spun over the edge of the hill, and ended up in hospital.
Fortunately, his injuries were not severe but the car did burst into flames.
Speaking about the dramatic moment, Jeremy admitted he initially was furious because he had been told somebody was driving his car.
Unaware that it was his co-star Richard, the car-enthusiast admitted his shock when he witnessed the disaster.
“Because I looked down the hillside and I’d been told that somebody had been driving my car and it had crashed,” Jeremy explained.
“So I was furious because I thought, ‘Who was driving my car anyway and why have they crashed it?’
“And then I looked and thought, ‘That’s not my car that’s Hammond’s.’ And it was on fire.”

“It later transpired that he only suffered a broken leg so not too bad,” Jeremy added to Joe online.
Richard, who is an experienced driver, suffered the second accident in 2017 and made a full recovery.
Meanwhile, Jeremy reacted to a social media user after they questioned the car-enthusiast’s health.
Taking to Twitter, the person in question wrote: “#WhoWantsToBeAMillionaire you can see that #jeremyclarkson isn’t well.
“He’s overweight and smokes too much, no doubt he’s be drinking himself silly in #JamesMay’s country pub.”
Jeremy hit back at the commentator as the presenter admitted he quit smoking some time ago.
He wrote: “I haven’t smoked for three years.”
