Fans of Jeremy Clarkson’s reign on ‘Top Gear’ can be assured that the new Amazon Prime show will be as excessively silly as ever, after the presenter posted photographic evidence of a car wreck he was involved in during filming in Barbados.

The disgraced former BBC presenter, who was sacked after the legendary ‘fracas’ with a producer which occurred almost exactly a year ago on the last series of ‘Top Gear’, admitted that he wrote off one of the cars he was driving while shooting the new big-budget Amazon Prime series on the Caribbean island with trusty colleagues Richard Hammond and James May.

Though he’s just commenced filming the much-talked about Amazon Prime series along with Jeremy Clarkson and Richard Hammond, former ‘Top Gear’ co-presenter James May reckons that whatever the BBC comes up with in their absence will be a “credible rival” for their own show.

The 52 year old former BBC presenter, who along with Hammond followed Clarkson out of the door at the network after the latter was sacked following the infamous ‘fracas’ in March, appeared on ITV’s ‘This Morning’ and said that he wasn’t concerned about the competition from their former employers, according to the Mirror.

Jeremy Clarkson Richard Hammond James May

A court in Argentina is re-opening a criminal investigation against Jeremy Clarkson and ‘Top Gear’, with regard to the controversial Christmas special episode set in the South American state, with prosecutors seeking a three-year sentence for the former presenter.

Clarkson and his ‘Top Gear’ colleague Richard Hammond and James May sparked fury in the southern-most province of Tierra Del Fuego in October last year, when Clarkson drove the whole 1,400 mile trip in a red Porsche with the licence plate H982 FKL – taken to be a reference to the Falklands War between Argentina and Britain by irate locals and veterans of the conflict.

The Top Gear presenting line-up - it’s had more drama than the cobbles of Corrie and the square of Eastenders. Since Jeremy Clarkson had his contract ended with the BBC One show after a fracas with a producer, there’s been rumours (Jodie Kidd), possibilities (Jensen Button) and definite nos (Sue Perkins, who had to quit Twitter after the trolls told her they didn’t want to see her on the show).

Writing in his Sunday Times column Clarkson said, 'Back in the summer it was decided by people with serious faces and stethoscopes that I needed a complete break.

Could The New Clarkson, Hammond And May Amazon Show Be Called 'Gear Knobs'?


Jeremy Clarkson Richard Hammond James May

The new Amazon motoring show to be presented by Jeremy Clarkson, Richard Hammond and James May might be getting a rather bizarre title. Legal documents unearthed in a new report suggest that the upcoming show might have the name ‘Gear Knobs’. Okaaaay…

A trademark application, filed two weeks before the former ‘Top Gear’ trio announced their new deal with Amazon’s Prime Instant Video service on July 30th, was discovered by BuzzFeed. This suggests that Clarkson and co. will not only be sticking with the kind of laddish humour that’s made them globally popular, but have also decided to annoy their former BBC employers in the process.
