The Grand Tour’s Jeremy Clarkson, James May and Richard Hammond have never been wetter if behind-the-scenes pictures from their new special are anything to go by.
The presenters, who are going off the roads and travelling the waters in their upcoming 90-minute film Seamen, were drenched head to toe in water as they each embarked on their missions – and they didn’t seem too over the moon about it either.
The official Instagram account for the upcoming feature shared four pictures of Jeremy and the gang each at work and captioned the shots: ‘Dripping wet seamen.
‘Behind the scenes of #TheGrandTour feature-length special.’
The final snap saw the hosts stood by a dock staring right down the camera lens, but this time around James had thrown on a bright purple disposable rain mac for caution.
Fans couldn’t get enough of the pics and rushed to comment in anticipation of seeing the trio reunite on the small screen.
‘The boys are back in… another town, or country, or continent,’ wrote one, while another added: ‘Can’t wait to see the boys back at it again!’
Jeremy, James and Richard travelled to Vietnam and Cambodia for the first special in the new season, which will see the presenters head off on a series of road trips.
In the hotly-anticipated instalment, the group will also be embarking on a risky 800km journey across Tonle Sap Lake and Mekong Delta, with James taking to the water in a 1939 wooden river cruiser.
‘I thought it would be fun to learn about them and I knew the scenery would be very beautiful,’ James said of his mode of transport.
‘I thought it would be very tranquil and like a lovely boating holiday but it didn’t work out like that at all. It was utter misery.’
Meanwhile, Jeremy explained the new format will appeal to viewers more.
‘There is no question that people prefer the specials when we whizz off and go and do something incredible, compared to the studio side of it,’ he said.
‘The other problem we have is time. Doing 12 or 13 shows a year is phenomenally time-consuming and it was sort of wiping us out, so now we can just concentrate on the specials and make them even better than they were.’
The Grand Tour Special airs Friday 13th December on Amazon Prime Video.
