Jeremy Clarkson, 61, admitted that his co-star James May, 58, was forced to “abandon ship” while shooting The Grand Tour in Vietnam. The former Top Gear host was also joined by Richard Hammond, 52, after a massive monsoon forced the trio to flee.

The Clarkson’s Farm star addressed the terrible ordeal as he revealed that his boat capsized in an unearthed interview.

It comes after the presenters filmed an episode of the show in Vietnam back in 2019 before the pandemic.

Jeremy shared his horror as he revealed the near-fatal Grand Tour incident that occurred where four people had died.

The trio ended up in a dangerous situation after a massive monsoon started in the midst of the shoot while the cast and crew were abroad filming for the show on a boat.

Jeremy, Richard and James were in the middle of the South China Sea, when the boat almost capsized.

James was rescued by the producers as the boat began to flood with water as a result of the monsoon.

Addressing the moment, Jeremy explained: “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.

“I, of course, was fine, but May had to abandon ship as crew boats were filling with water.”

He continued to his DriveTribe channel: “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.”

The highly-anticipated special of The Grand Tour, Carnage A Trois, is set to return to Amazon Prime.

The on-screen star also shared his excitement at being able to shoot the series abroad.

Meanwhile, the trio has returned for a new series of The Grand Tour which has been widely praised by viewers.

Carnage A Trois followed the trio as they travelled from Wales to the South Coast of the UK in a number of cars in the latest episode.

He said at the time: “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.”

Jeremy added: “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 former BBC presenter fronted Top Gear alongside his co-hosts Richard and James.

In 2015, the trio began working on their Amazon Prime series – The Grand Tour.

The Grand Tour: Carnage a Trois is available on Amazon Prime.
