First photos from the set of Clarkson, Hammond and May’s ‘The Grand Tour’ Amazon show emerge

A first look at the former Top Gear hosts' new venture

The first photographs from the set of The Grand Tour – Jeremy Clarkson, Richard Hammond and James May’s new TV show – have been released.

The build-up to the premiere of the new show has been hugely anticipated since Clarkson was fired from Top Gear last year by the BBC for punching a producer of the popular motoring show. His co-hosts, Hammond and May, left the show following Clarkson’s axing, only to reunite for a new motoring show on the subscription service Amazon Prime.

And now the first glimpse from the set of The Grand Tour has been revealed. Having wrapped shooting for the first episode of the new series in South Africa over the weekend, Amazon have now released pictures from the set, seemingly confirming Clarkson’s claim from a few months ago that “we’ll be travelling the world hosting each episode in a different country, from a giant tent.”

See the shots from the set below.

Clarkson took to Twitter after filming, expressing his delight at the outcome of the first episode.

The series is expected to air in the autumn.
