Piers Morgan Slams Jeremy Clarkson's Amazon Deal: 'I Didn't Realise It Was Amazon Past-Your-Prime'

Piers Morgan just can’t seem to let his feud with Jeremy Clarkson lie, hitting out at the controversial presenter’s new deal with Amazon Prime.


At the end of July, it was confirmed that Jeremy and his former ‘Top Gear’ presenters, Richard Hammond and James May, had signed a new deal with Amazon, following his much-discussed sacking from the BBC show.

While his fans rejoiced at the news, Piers just couldn’t resist sticking the boot in, joking to Digital Spy: “I thought it was Amazon Prime, not Amazon Past Your Prime.”

It has been claimed that Jeremy, Richard and James are set to be raking it in with their new Amazon contract, reportedly getting a whopping £160 million between them for their new deal, which will see them fronting three series of the as-of-yet unnamed project.

Jeremy recently revealed his excitement over the new show, writing in his newspaper column: "We will be off. To make what will be a seriously well-funded, British-based show with no commercial breaks and, better still, no editorial pressure from on high.

“Amazon has been delightfully clear on that. ‘Just make the show you wanna make, guys.’ Music to my ears.”
