Jeremy Clarkson’s new show turns into car crash

Former Top Gear presenter Jeremy Clarkson’s new TV venture has already seen him involved in a car crash.
The British TV star, who is currently making a motoring show for internet giant Amazon’s video streaming service, posted a photo of a crumpled car chassis with an exposed engine alongside the caption, “Had a bit of an accident while filming today”.
Jeremy and ex-Top Gear stars James May and Richard Hammond have been filming for their new project in Barbados over the weekend (27-28Feb16), but it is not known where the picture of the smash was taken.
The trio departed the BBC show last year (15) when Jeremy was dismissed due to an altercation with a crew member. Last month (Feb16) he apologised for his actions and settled a $140,080 (£100,000) personal injury claim against him.
One of their replacements on Top Gear, new presenter Matt LeBlanc has also been filming in an exotic location this week (beg29Feb16) as he and British rapper Tinie Tempah are in South Africa working on the revamped program.
In contrast to his predecessor’s clumsy antics behind the wheel, Matt and Tinie’s roadtrip appeared to be going smoothly, as Matt posted a picture of the pair smiling on Twitter with the caption, “My co driver for a few days. @TinieTempah goin low.”
Their journey hasn’t been entirely without incident however, as on Wednesday (02Mar16) Matt tweeted a picture of a herd of goats blocking the road and wrote, “Traffic on the Sani pass in Lesotho, South Africa.”
The new incarnation of Top Gear, whose hosts include the former Friends star, British TV presenter Chris Evans and racing driver Sabine Schmitz is due to premiere in May (16), while Jeremy, James and Richard’s Amazon show will debut later this year.
