The Grand Tour: Richard Hammond on the new series
Jeremy Clarkson has weighed in on The Grand Tour’s new TV special in a social media post as fresh details about the latest episode are revealed.
Jeremy issued a touching tribute to Zimbabwe as filming came to a close ahead of the release of a feature-length episode early next year.
However, Mr Clarkson was quick to call out the country’s “potholes” in a thinly veiled swipe.
He posted on X, formerly Twitter: “My profound thanks to the people and Government of Zimbabwe for helping to make a very special Grand Tour special, very special.
“We absolutely adored everything about your country. Apart from the potholes maybe.”

Earlier this afternoon, Mr Clarkson posted an image from the trip on social media with the trio claiming to be trapped in the desert.
He wrote: “BA have messed up our flight home so we are marooned here at a luxury camp in Botswana. With only 40 staff. It’s all about survival now.”
James May also posted about the delay on social media: “Grand tour presenters MAROONED in Botswana wildlife paradise following cancellation of BA flight home. Updates to follow.”
British Airways even contacted the presenters, issuing their apologies for the delay in getting the presenters home.
They replied: “Hi James, we’re sorry your flight home has been disrupted. Please send us a DM with your booking details and we’ll help where we can. Gareth.”

Mr Clarkson has issued a series of further leaks about the series as he documented the trip which took place two weeks ago.
On September, 20, Clarkson posted an image on Instagram of the trio standing in the desert in front of three classic cars.
No official details on the vehicles used in the show have been unveiled but Reddit users in Zimbabwe have claimed to unveiled the information.
Mr Clarkson is expected to be driving a blue Lancia Montecarlo in the special with James in a purple 1974 Triumph Stag.
Meanwhile, Richard is tipped to be behind the wheel of a yellow Ford Capri RS3100 with a beige Rover SD1 understood to be a backup car.
Alongside the snap, Mr Clarkson posted the simple caption: “Good to be back.” Just four days later, he posted a second image showing Mr May and Richard Hammond camping in the sunset. Jeremy added the caption: “The Grand Tour. Being grand.”
However, an eager fan located in Zimbabwe has revealed another key detail about the episode months ahead of launch. An image showed James May eating dinner with Mr Clarkson as the pair visited a takeaway.
@tiger_zim said: “Thank you @JeremyClarkson 4 visiting @HalfwayHousezw Headlands… you & your team were amazing.” (sic)
Reddit users believe the trip is trekking from Nyanga in the eastern part of Zimbabwe to Victoria Falls.
The former Top Gear hosts are understood to have stopped off in Harare and Kariba as part of a whopping 1,000 kilometres journey. The show does not have a release date but fans have predicted the show will likely air in early 2024.
