Celebrity guests are set to feature on the second series of The Grand Tour, the show’s official Twitter account has revealed.
A video posted on social media shows series hosts Jeremy Clarkson, Richard Hammond and James May receiving a call from Amazon bosses calling an end to the Celebrity Brain Crash feature from the first run.
A swipe at Chris Evans’ overlong celebrity interviews on Top Gear, the segment saw a procession of stars ‘killed off’ across the series but was frequently criticised by the trio’s fans for being obvious and unfunny.
Today’s video suggests the segment will be replaced by a new feature in which guests take on a motoring challenge involving a sawn in half car, similar to Top Gear’s Star In a Reasonably Priced Car.
However we have currently unanswered questions about the new segment’s name…
Are we calling this ‘Stars in half a reasonably priced car’ Or ‘Stars in a half reasonably priced car’ ?
