Jeremy Clarkson 'Had a Bit of an Accident' While Filming New Show
It looks like we have something to look forward to when Jeremy Clarkson’s new show debuts on Amazon.
The former Top Gear presenter recently tweeted that he “had a bit of an accident while filming” accompanied with a photo of a car that looks like it has been thoroughly destroyed. Maybe an accident is an understatement for the carnage represented in the image, which shows the engine exposed, metal bent and broken and the front bumper and license plate wrapped up and facing the wrong way.
Other than what Clarkson tweeted, there aren’t any other details of the accident, which occurred in Barbados. But something tells us it was all caught on film and will likely air in an upcoming episode of the new show. The new show started filming last year and still doesn’t have an official name.
Meanwhile, the new Top Gear will have a plethora of new hosts with Chris Evans at the helm, joined by Matt LeBlanc, Sabine Schmitz and others.
