It’s been an interesting couple of days of news, hasn’t it?
Jeremy Clarkson Falls Ill With Pneumonia
Over the weekend it became known that Jeremy Clarkson has fallen ill with pneumonia while on holiday in Spain. He posted the following to Instagram.
He’s stated that he’ll be ‘out of action’ for quite some time. But what effect will this have on The Grand Tour? Well, depending on the severity of the pneumonia, it’s possible that he won’t be returning to work for 6-8 weeks. This will definitely affect Clarkson’s filming, especially as he had to take over Hammond’s parts after his crash in the Rimac. Only time will tell, but for now, we’ll wish Jeremy the very best and a speedy recovery!
