Jeremy Clarkson, Richard Hammond and James May may be best known to fans as the faces of motoring shows Top Gear and The Grand Tour, but 2020 has seen two of the stars take on very different roles. James made a return to Amazon Prime Video in his own cooking show, Oh Cook, while Jeremy has been getting his fingers green on his own farm for an eight-part project titled I Bought a Farm. However, between Oh Cook, The Grand Tour’s next special and I Bought A Farm, it’s only the former which has made it to air in 2020. Speaking exclusively to Express.co.uk, James shed some new light on when fans may be able to expect his co-star’s new venture.
James shared the update when he was asked about possibly crossing over the two shows in the future.
The Grand Tour star replied: “I don’t know. As far as I can work out he’s only grown potatoes. [laughs].
“In the pub I bought, or half of it, I was wondering about having Jeremy Clarkson potatoes as a special but economically it doesn’t make a huge amount of sense, to be honest.
“Because for my pub to his farm would be probably about 120 miles. That’s a long way to go for a bag of potatoes and probably not particularly ethical or environmental.”
James continued: “So I think we will stick with the local potatoes which are grown about half a mile down the road.
“I don’t see very many other opportunities for a crossover, to be honest.
“I’ve talked to a bit about his farming show – well he goes on about it all the time because obviously, he’s basically Jethro Tull,” the Oh Cook host continued.
“But he’s gotta film a whole year and I can’t remember where he started – so you’re not you’re not gonna see it in the next few weeks, Clarkson’s farming show.”
And while fans await that news, they’re also waiting with bated breath for the release date of the second special of The Grand Tour season four.
James also shed a little light on when it could air, again assuring fans it’s on the way.
“I understand the delay,” he commented. “Because material for TV is a precious commodity at the moment.”
“We don’t want to throw it away, you know, it’s a special, it’s got to go on at the right time.”
