James May Broke His Arm For The Grand Tour

We are fairly certain Amazon Prime is trying to kill Jeremy Clarkson, Richard Hammond, and James May. We’ve seen Clarkson get all bloodied as he was attempting “The most dangerous stunt I’ve ever attempted. This may well be a goodbye.”  We then saw the three in a jacked up Merc caught on video captured by a bystander, only to be followed up shortly with another Clarkson tweet: “Had a bit of an accident,” and attached a picture of a crashed car.

Now Andy Wilman shared another The Grand Tour incident during his interview at the Edinburgh International TV Festival. Recalling a night before filming for The Grand Tour:

“James fell over the night before filming, coming out of a pub,” he told the crowd at the festival.

He rang me up and said “I’ve broken my arm”. His car was automatic so we stuck him on Eurostar, pumped him full of drugs and left him to it.”

(James) did more damage to it because he had to keep on going but he’s falling to bits anyway. We are not in Usain Bolt territory with that body.”

Wilman also shared some screened clips of the upcoming show, showing Jeremy Clarkson riding a jet ski and also testing out a Rolls Royce.thegrandtour-teaser-3

Despite all of the discussion about the new show, Wilman still did not provide any details or specific dates about the show’s release. However, we might run into episodes with various lengths and it might even be featured on TV. Business Insider shared that:

The series will comprise of 12 episodes, each of which will be around an hour in length. Wilman said they can afford to be a bit looser with episode lengths, given the show is not being broadcast on traditional television.

The show could be repeated on a traditional broadcaster, Wilman said, explaining that “Top Gear” has a good “shelf life.”

He joked that show could be repeated on Dave in the future — the UKTV channel that is famous for wall-to-wall repeats of “Top Gear.”

Wilman has also gone on to share the hilarious limitations that The Grand Tour cannot say or do in fear of being sued by the BBC, and has even shared some of the back story behind Jeremy Clarkson’s firing and how it was a bunch of politics.
