Jeremy Clarkson, alongside his co-stars Richard Hammond and James May, is gearing up for the forthcoming premiere of Amazon Prime Video’s The Grand Tour Presents: Carnage A Trois, which premieres on the streaming platform on December 17. 

Ahead of the show’s return, Jeremy and his colleagues are embarking on a promotional run supporting the forthcoming second season.

They just shrug at you. They don’t care

And it was during an interview with Breaking News where the 61-year-old shared his experience of getting to film his show out in France.

Jeremy recalled how he had found himself being stopped by the French police on multiple occasions but added that he was never worried about his encounter with law enforcement officers because “they don’t care”.

“The French shrug is something I admire very much when they can’t be bothered to help you,” he said.

“I’ve been stopped a couple of times by the French police, and you plead and beg, and they just shrug at you. They don’t care. So I very much enjoy France – always have. It’s one of my favourite places.”

Jeremy went on to say that he doesn’t think he’s spent more time in another country as much as he has travelled to France.

On top of that, Jeremy also appreciates France for its food, wine and “fantastic places,” giving all the more reason why he considers the country one of his favourite travelling spots.

“I’ve holidayed there more than anywhere. And all of it, from the south and south-west, the Dordogne I went to most recently, Brittany, it’s all paradise.

“Paris is a bit weird, but there’s so many absolutely fantastic places all over the country. I love French wine, French food, and the French way of life. I actually like their belligerence,” he continued.

“I admire the way that they don’t accept government edicts, and they burn the speed cameras. There’s much to admire.”

Jeremy has been busier than ever as he gears up for the premiere of The Grand Tour’s latest episode. 

Since last month, the father of three has also returned to work on season two of his other Amazon Prime Video show, Clarkson’s Farm, opposite his co-star Kaleb Cooper. 

In an interview on The Zoe Ball Breakfast Show last week, Jeremy recalled an incident where he was forced to call Kaleb for assistance after suffering a mishap with his tractor.

The Who Wants To Be A Millionaire? host mentioned having replaced the vehicle’s “disk” before the tractor began to malfunction with the two front wheels flying into the air. At the same time, Jeremy calmly waited for his co-star to come for the rescue. 

“Weirdly, I bought a piece of equipment — it’s called a disk; apparently, I’ve learned,” he told the BBC Radio 2 morning show.

“It was too heavy, really, so every time you lifted it up, the front wheels of my tractor went into the air, and then it got stuck, so you couldn’t get the wheels back down.”

To stabilise the tractor, Jeremy had Kaleb sit on the bonnet so that the additional weight would bring the front wheels back down. 

While the incident could’ve easily gotten Jeremy hurt, he went on to quip: “The only way I could drive the tractor was by having Kaleb as a sort of bonnet ornament like the flying lady on the Rolls Royce.”

Jeremy continued saying that Kaleb was kept on the bonnet as they made their way to the Doncaster native’s brewery ahead of a beer tasting session despite the tractor malfunctioning. 

After tasting beer all afternoon, Jeremy joked that driving the tractor had made for an “even more amazing spectacle”.

Clarkson’s Farm is slated for a return in early 2022 while The Grand Tour Presents: Carnage A Trois hits Amazon Prime Video December 17.
