Jeremy Clarkson has revealed how Richard Hammond’s recent accident has affected filming for the second series of ‘The Grand Tour’.

Over the weekend, Richard was airlifted to a Swiss hospital after a stunt went wrong, and he’s since undergone surgery on his knee.

While he’s still recovering, co-presenter Jeremy has admitted that the incident has thrown things into chaos behind the scenes.

Jeremy previously used the site to describe his eyewitness account of the accident, during which the Rimac supercar Richard was driving careered off the road, flipping multiple times before bursting into flames.

Although Richard was able to leap from the car before the fire started, Jeremy admitted afterwards that initially he and the crew had no idea whether he’d made it out alive.

After making it safely to hospital, Richard offered fans a video update from his hospital bed, during which he also apologised to his wife and daughters, having previously said that his days of dangerous stunts were behind him.

The second series of ‘The Grand Tour’ is expected to begin streaming on Amazon Prime later this year.
