Jeremy Clarkson’s Grand Tour horror, which nearly led to his death after ‘four people died in inches’


Jeremy Clarkson, TV presenter, hinted at major changes to The Grand Tour. Special episodes can take six months to prepare.

Before the release of their latest special, Carnage A Trois, Clarkson said: “We’ll see how this series is received but there are plans to do something similar again. For now, we can’t wait to get back to doing more big foreign travel.

“It’s tricky because everything’s so fluid at the moment. It takes six months to plan a foreign trip for us, and who’s to know what’s going to happen in six months’ time?”

The presenters have been a team since they began hosting Top Gear in 2002
Since 2002, Top Gear’s first Top Gear broadcast, the presenters have been a part of the team.

Jeremy Clarkson and Richard Hammond rose to fame after they presented Top Gear, a topical motor show. James May joined them a year later.

The trio quit the show in 2015, and they began work on The Grand Tour. The Grand Tour was exclusively released on Amazon Prime the following year.

Clarkson, Hammond, and May were filming in Vietnam in 2019, when they got into a dangerous situation.

While filming the show, the team was caught in a monsoon. The three presenters were rowing in one of the world’s most dangerous bodies of water, the South China Sea, when the monsoon hit and four people had consequently died.

James was saved by producers after his boat nearly sank due to the monsoon’s floodwaters. Jeremy spoke on the event: “It transpired four people were killed an inch away from us. It’s about the only time health and safety has made the correct decision.”

“Although I was fine, May had to abandon ship because the crew boats were leaking with water.

DriveTribe is an online car community run by the three petrol heads. Clarkson also spoke on their YouTube channel about the Vietnam trip. “It was an incredibly dramatic ending, which was entirely accidental.”

“The ending we’d planned, that we’d spent hundreds of thousands of pounds on, that we had researched for months, didn’t happen.

“As a result of the conditions we simply couldn’t complete the shoot but because of the conditions we had one hell of an ending ‒ an astonishing ending.”
