Jeremy Clarkson and his co-stars James May and Richmond Hammond have started shooting their new motoring programme, possibly in Portugal.

Clarkson tweeted a picture yesterday of the three ex-BBC presenters standing next to three sports cars, with the words: “With a skeleton crew, filming for Amazon Prime’s new motoring programme has begun.”
