Speaking about the changes, Jay Marine, VP of Amazon Video Europe: ""The Grand Tour" is our most popular show around the world having been watched in over 240 countries and territories.

"Customers continually tell us that their favourite segments of "The Grand Tour" are the travelling adventures of Jeremy, Richard and James, so despite the various calamities and injuries along the way, the guys have spent this year exploring more incredible and stunning locations than ever before ... and getting into more trouble of course. We can't wait for our Prime members to see Series Two later this year."

Andy Wilman, Executive Producer of "The Grand Tour", added: "It's clear that the most popular "Grand Tour" element of the show is when the chaps are roaming the globe on their big adventures and road trips, so that's what we're doing a lot more of for this series. We'll keep the studio in one place, and given how accident prone they are at the minute, that can only be a good thing!"

Going forward, the three hosts - who have a combined age of 158 - will be hoping for less medical dramas than they have suffered in the past year.

Hammond, 47, shattered his knee in a car accident which occurred as he drove a Rimac Concept One electric super-car, which can reach speeds of nearly 200mph, in Switzerland in June for the show but he lost control of the vehicle when doing the Hemburg Hill Climb resulting him smashing the vehicle.

Luckily, Hammond managed to free himself from the wreckage before the car burst into flames but his knee did require surgery involving a metal plate and pins to repair the joint.

In the summer, Clarkson, 57, had to be rushed to hospital with severe pneumonia while holidaying in Majorca, Spain, with his family but he's now on the mend.
