grand tour on-set

This is what the first episode of 'The Grand Tour' will look like. Amazon released the image showing Ex-'Top Gear' presenters Jeremy Clarkson, James May and Richard Hammond on set in Johannesburg, the location of the first show in the series.

The show sees the trio travelling the world, filming with a different studio audience each week. The pop-up tent studio will be in a different location each week, though so far the only location to be revealed is Johannesburg.

Like 'Top Gear', it will also include films shot on location.

Speaking about filming the first episode, Clarkson told The Sun: "We've done it hundreds of times. It should be easy. I should be relaxed.

"But tomorrow, in a field just outside Johannesburg, James May, Richard Hammond and I will record the first studio segment for our new show 'The Grand Tour'. And I don't mind telling you, I'm c******* myself."

The show will air in the autumn on Amazon Prime Video.

The images were released shortly after Chris Evans stepped down from presenting 'Top Gear' after just one series. Co-host Matt LeBlanc is expected to take over as host when the show returns next year. Its Christmas specials for 2016 have also been cancelled.
