‘He’s not really with us’ Jeremy Clarkson’s swipe at James May after The Grand Tour prank

The Grand Tour returns to Amazon this month with two new episodes of the fan favourite show. This time, the trio gallivanted around Scotland following a delay in filming due to coronavirus and travel restrictions. As usual, Jeremy Clarkson, 61, and Richard Hammond, 51, managed to find time to prank James May, 58, this time leaving him drenched. 

Viewers will witness the car enthusiast trying to pick himself up out of a puddle after Jeremy and Richard filled up his caravan with water. 

Speaking to Express.co.uk, Jeremy, 61, admitted he doesn’t believe their co-star will ever get them back.

“No, James tends to mostly think about victorian poetry,” he said of his colleague.

“So, everybody’s head has a place where it settles, mine is, ‘What can we do that is amusing and will make James’ life a little bit worse?’

“Richard’s is the same thing.

“James gets in the car and thinks about victorian poetry. He doesn’t really know where he is, until he goes to the lavatory.

“So, he doesn’t actually think about getting us back, he’s drenched, gets in the car, victorian poetry.

“Maybe he’s saving it all up,” he laughed.

The Who Wants To Be A Millionaire? presenter added that James is “never really with us”.

Giving an example, he said his colleague will sometimes follow the wrong camera car or takes the wrong turn during filming.

“He’s never really with us. He lives in a very happy place of his own,” he added.

James has since said he will probably get revenge on his co-stars once they’ve stopped working together.

He joked: “I might do it long after we’ve all retired.

“I might go and burn down Richard Hammond’s Lake District house or something.”

The ex Top Gear star added that he actually does enjoy being at the receiving end of their wind-ups at times.

He said of the caravan prank: “I don’t quite know how they did it because I didn’t have the door on the caravan, which is quite a flimsy thing.

“I don’t know how we stood that much pressure. Top marks for ingenuity.”

The trio first rose to fame on Top Gear back in 2003 up until their departure in 2015.

The following year, the car enthusiasts began fronting Amazon’s The Grand Tour.

In their new episodes, viewers will see the squad heading to the Outer Hebrides for one of their toughest challenges yet.
