Jeremy Clarkson, 61, opened up about the highly-anticipated series of The Grand Tour special, which airs later this month. The former Top Gear presenter suffered a major disaster as he revealed he was caught up in a road accident.

Writing in his latest column, Jeremy addressed the difficulties he and his co-star’s James May, 58, and Richard Hammond, 51, faced while prepping for the Amazon Prime series, The Grand Tour Presents: Lochdown.

Fans of the show will see the hilarious trio travel to Scotland but are confined due to the coronavirus restrictions.

Jeremy revealed that they were forced to sleep in caravans which were attached to their beloved cars as they toured the country.

But it wasn’t without problems as the car-enthusiast admitted he believed he crashed his caravan.

The former Top Gear presenter explained that when his team of 50 people were unable to stay in a hotel room they would take refuge in their own caravans.

He offered an apology to the people of Scotland who were stuck behind Jeremy’s “17-mile slow-moving convoy” amid his sudden incident.

Jeremy explained: “I’d like to apologise now, if I may, to the good people of Scotland who were stuck behind us.

“And to the man who owned the woods into which my caravan crashed on day four.”

He continued in The Times: “While driving along in the Wedgwood blue Wilmslow lounge, I noticed out of the corner of my eye that I was being overtaken by my ’van.

“Instinctively I thought I was in the middle of a very large accident, which was confusing because I was still on the road and I still had control of the steering and the brakes.

“Plus there was no sound of rending metal and tortured tyres, noises that normally accompany a car crash.”

The Grand Tour host explained that he didn’t go off the road but his caravan did.

“It turned out that the towbar had simply come off and that as a result, my sleeping quarters were buried at the bottom of a bank, in a thick and impenetrable forest,” Jeremy concluded.

The TV star admitted that their trip was not without incidence for his co-star Richard.

Jeremy added that while thankfully didn’t suffer any crashes, Richard had to have a plane chartered after after coming down with Covid.

Fans of the Grand Tour will not have long to wait to catch the trio’s latest car adventure.

They will feature in a lockdown special, celebrating some of the greatest cars from their childhood.

This double-bill special will follow Jeremy, Richard and James as they look at some of the greatest American cars from the 70s.

The three hosts will get behind the wheels of a Cadillac Coupe De Ville as driven by Elvis, a Lincoln Continental as driven by Jock Ewing of Dallas fame, and a Buick Riviera as piloted by Clint Eastwood.

Taking in the stunning scenery of Scotland, they will embark on a journey in their classic Detroit vehicles.

The Grand Tour Presents: Lochdown airs on July 30 on Amazon Prime Video.
