The Grand Tour season 4: Richard Hammond opens up on behind-the-scenes backlash

0

THE GRAND TOUR returned to screens this month and brought yet another collection of relentless antics to the show. But Richard Hammond is now a little nervous about the backlash from perhaps his greatest critic: his wife.

The Grand Tour brought Richard Hammond, James May, and Jeremy Clarkson back to the forefront of Amazon Prime Video this month. After an extended hiatus, the trio have now released their first special of this collection of films: Seamen.

This particular Grand Tour special shows off the boys working on their sailing abilities, as they ventured through Vietnam and Cambodia.

Traversing the almost endless labyrinth of rivers and lakes left the presenters struggling to keep themselves afloat.

Throughout the film all three presenters found it increasingly difficult to get through the journey without putting themselves in danger.

The final part of the show put the trio through a tough storm whilst sailing into Vietnam once again.

And although all of the hosts made it out of the dramatic conditions safe and well, Richard believes he is going to receive some backlash for the show.

Speaking to Female First Richard explained: “The truth is my wife will probably be a bit miffed when she sees this film.

“I have promised her not to put myself into dangerous situations any more after the two big crashes I had.”

He went on to add: “Clearly, this was a moment when I may have broken that code.

“But she is used to me at this stage. She is incredibly patient with me.”

Richard then spoke briefly about the danger he found himself in during the show’s final few scenes.

He confessed: “It was pretty frightening in the final scenes of this film.

“And we didn’t put that on, of course now, we don’t hide anything, and I said afterwards that it was one of the three worst things I’ve done in my life.”

Thankfully, Richard was left unharmed, and will go on to sail another day.

Although the show was gruelling for all of the presenters, it didn’t stop Jeremy taking a sly dig at Top Gear during his final word.

After pulling James out of his boat, Jeremy confessed he thought it was “staggering it’s still there”.

He then went on to look directly at the camera and announce: “But we survived.

“And on that terrible disappointment for Top Gear… it’s time to say goodbye.”

Richard Hammond threw his head back with laughter after the outrageous comment.

As Jeremy chuckled, he concluded: “We’ll be back. See you very soon.”
