After a couple of health scares delayed the return of Amazon’s The Grand Tour, hosts Jeremy Clarkson, Richard Hammond and James May are back filming the studio tent sections of the show.
The show’s official Twitter account revealed last night that the ‘live’ audience section of the Amazon Prime Video series begin filming today, and James May followed up with a confirmation this morning.
The show’s hotly anticipated second season has faced a number of issues this time round: Hammond was hospitalised following a dramatic crash while filming the show in the Swiss mountains in June, which Clarkson called the “most frightening” accident he had ever witnessed.
It was the biggest crash I've ever seen and the most frightening but incredibly, and thankfully, Richard seems to be mostly OK.
According to Amazon, the decision to stay put in Blighty this season was made to preserve the hosts’ “sore joints, struggling lungs and combined age of 158”, and, given recent events, it’s probably for the best.
