James May has assured The Grand Tour fans that the new series will go ahead as planned in a new update.
Covid-19 has hit television hard and The Grand Tour, Amazon’s globe-trotting, engine-revving motor show fronted by Jeremy Clarkson, Richard Hammond and James, is no exception.
And in a vital update, James admitted the series might suffer from a slight delay.
New episodes will see the trio make their way to Russia, but amid the pandemic it’s proving difficult to get filming underway, James says.
He told RadioTimes : “I think it’s fairly well-known that we had a big trip to Russia planned, that is on hold for all the obvious reasons.
And before The Grand Tour hits the small screen, fans will get to see James in a whole new role – as a celebrity chef.
James May: Oh Cook! sees him have a crack at whipping up various recipes, with James laughing that doing something without Clarkson and Hammond proved quite nice.
The show will arrive on Amazon Prime on November 13.
