This week’s episode of The Grand Tour saw Jeremy Clarkson, Richard Hammond and James May head to Morocco for 60 minutes of typically unpredictable petrol-fuelled mayhem. But it seems that said mayhem extended off the small screen too – after an incident forced filming to grind to a halt.
In a teaser for the latest episode, which was released on Friday, the trio are seen relaxing as they attempt to take stock of what exactly has happened.
“We’re not going to tell you what just happened, obviously because you’ll have to watch the show. But… all of it was unexpected, and everyone will go “oh you set that up”. Well, now you see, we really didn’t. That is half past one – that is a wrap!”
And while the incident isn’t specifically referenced, we believe it may refer to the moment a major stunt went awry as the group attempted to weigh a Mazda. But the blip will do nothing to dent the show’s success – after it became Amazon’s most highly viewed original series.
However, it might not necessarily become the lucrative financial success that Amazon were expecting, after the show also became Amazon’s most highly pirated show – at a reported cost of £5 million so far.
