James May has been speaking out on the next episode of The Grand Tour as the film of their trip to Madagascar edges closer to being released on Amazon Prime Video. In a recent interview, he discusses not only this new episode, but the last episode of the show where him, alongside Jeremy Clarkson and Richard Hammond, travelled across Cambodia and Vietnam in three boats.
It’s safe to say the beginning of fourth season of The Grand Tour didn’t go down so well, with fans expressing their negativity on social media. May also comments on how dangerous it was to film:
“It wasn’t as hairy as the boat one, which was stupid, on reflection.”
He then moves onto the next episode coming later this year.
“But Madagascar was arduous, sweaty and we got covered in lots of c**p as usual.”
He told The Sun, “it’s a fascinating place. I don’t think I’ve ever been anywhere as beautiful.”
But unfortunately it was ruined by others.
“The only thing that spoiled it was the presence of my two co-hosts.
“It’s a good film, very upbeat and positive. And it’s got cars in it.”

May continues: “You always get some people who complain about not doing cars, but on the whole people were very positive about it.
“It’s been received well. We’ve been doing this a long time and people want to see us three together.”
He says, “but people who are fans of us want to see us doing something, whether that be cars, or boats, or standing on our heads.
“I don’t think what we do matters that much to about 75 per cent of the audience.”
