Jeremy Clarkson, 61, Richard Hammond, 51, and James May, 58, have been fronting The Grand Tour since 2016 following their stint on Top Gear. The trio are known for trying out new cars at high speeds which has caused injuries in the past.

Richard suffered a serious brain injury following a high-speed car accident back in 2006 and also crashed in 2017.

On whether his partner Lisa Hogan had concerns for him, Jeremy said she did say often tells him to “be careful” but wasn’t overly concerned.

“She’s never actually said [she’s had concerns] in so many words, she says,‘Do be careful’ but everyone can be careful even if you work at B&Q.”

He added to Express.co.uk: “We do push it sometimes as you know.

“There’s always a danger you’re going to bust something doing that, but our job is to entertain the viewers not look after ourselves.”

He added “nobody really cares” if they broke a bone as they are “employed to be interesting and entertain”.

The presenter said if there was such a show about them looking after themselves they’d remain in bed.

“You get out there and do your job,” he continued.

Jeremy added he considered themselves lucky to still be able to do such stunts, adding: “Even Richard Hammond didn’t have to go to hospital for this one!”

He joked of his past incidents: “He had forgotten how to take his own trousers off because normally he has paramedics who do that for him with scissors.”

The 61-year-old also quipped that his co-star had also had to learn how to drive himself home again after previous air ambulance attention.

The trio are back for two episodes of the show, filmed in Scotland.

The father-of-three added there was a “nagging doubt” while filming during the coronavirus pandemic.

He admitted it would’ve cost the production “thousands” if it had to be postponed again.

Thankfully, the trio and team managed to stay away from any risks.

Elsewhere, the presenter announced his solo series Clarkson’s Farm will be returning for a second series.
