Former Top Gear trio to stop off in Britain as part of Grand Tour

JEREMY Clarkson's new Amazon Prime motoring show The Grand Tour will be making a stop-off in the UK.

James May, Jeremy Clarkson and Richard Hammond will present The Grand Tour

Joined by his former Top Gear co-presenters Richard Hammond and James May, the trio will record shows in Britain, the US and Germany on their tour of the world.

Each week they will travel to a new destination to film the studio section in front of a live audience housed within “a giant tent”.

Amazon had previously confirmed the first recording would take place in Johannesburg, South Africa, later this month - with further locations revealed soon.

Clarkson, Hammond and May left BBC Two’s flagship motoring show last year following Clarkson’s “fracas” with Top Gear producer Oisin Tymon, but are back in the driving seat with their rival magazine car show.

The exact city locations of the studio recordings will be revealed later this summer, along with details on how Amazon customers can secure audience tickets.

:: The Grand Tour will launch exclusively on Amazon Prime in autumn 2016.
