Jeremy Clarkson has revealed that the ‘biggest accident of his life’ happened when he was filming The Grand Tour special.
The 61-year-old took to Twitter and said that during the production of the standalone episode, his car’s tow-bar flew off when he was turning around a tight corner.
Opening up to The Sun, he said: “There was a point when it started to overtake me, that I thought, ‘God, I’m having the biggest accident of my life’.

“Then I thought, ‘No, wait, I’m in control’. And then, ‘The caravan’s come off,’ and the whole tow-bar had detached.
“That really happened.”
Although it sounds reasonable for the 61-year-old to have been left feeling shaken up, his co-hosts were apparently not sympathetic.
James May said: “For half a second, I thought the whole rig had gone off the edge.
“I thought, ‘We are finally shot of Jeremy, with his beloved caravan’.”
The episode is expected to air on Amazon Prime later this month, but in the meantime, Clarkson fans have been watching his farm show.
In the series, the former Top Gear host spent time on his farm, tackling ‘unhelpful weather, disobedient animals and unresponsive crops’.
Despite it being a roaring success with viewers, it’s been reported that Clarkson’s Farm has already been cancelled.
In protest, fans have launched a petition arguing for Amazon Prime to reconsider.
It reads: “If you have watched the educational yet humorous Clarkson’s Farm series one and felt like you needed to see more of him, please sign this petition.
