Jeremy Clarkson, Richard Hammond & James May struggle to name their new show
Former Top Gear hosts Jeremy Clarkson, Richard Hammond, and James May struggling to name their new car show.
The three former Top Gear presenters are now preparing their own new show that is due to air for the first time on Amazon Prime this Autumn. The trio will star in a 12-episode season (each episode will cost around £4 million), and the show will continue running for the next two seasons.
Writing in his weekly Sunday Times column, Clarkson said: 'When I first signed up with Amazon Prime to make a new motoring show I knew all sorts of problems lay ahead.
'There was one problem, however, that I hadn't even considered. And it has turned out to be the biggest of the lot: Choosing a name.'
It seems most of the names the trio had suggested were already in use by someone in another country, whilst the word 'gear' could not be part of the new show's name due to 'legal reasons'.
Clarkson was famously sacked by the BBC after punching a Top Gear producer in a row over sirloin steak after a day of filming last March. Following Jemery's dismissal, Richard Hammond and James May resigned from the show following 13 years of service on the show together.
There are high chances that chances that the team, have already come up with a name, but they just want to build some tension around the show until it is aired.
