Ever since that whole 'fracas' with Jeremy Clarkson and the BBC a few months ago, the rumour mill has been on overload with speculation as to what the former Top Gear trio's next move would be. It was thought they could go to ITV, then there was talk of Netflix, but Jeremy Clarkson has just announced on Twitter this morning that they have signed a deal with Amazon Prime.

Jeremy Clarkson, Richard Hammond and James May are all reuniting for a brand new car show series with the streaming service, while the show will be produced by the trio’s long time executive producer Andy Wilman.
In a statement, Jeremy Clarkson said of working with Amazon; “I feel like I've climbed out of a bi-plane and into a spaceship."
The first show will go into production shortly and arrive exclusively on Amazon Prime in 2016.
