Former Top Gear host Jeremy Clarkson has begun filming his hotly anticipated Amazon Prime motoring show, complete with a ‘skeleton crew’ of dozens and co-presenters James May and Richard Hammond.

In a tweet to his 5.6m Twitter followers Clarkson announced: “With a skeleton crew, filming for Amazon Prime's new motoring programme has begun.”

An accompanying image depicted the trio of presenters straddling an unnamed racetrack, each paired with a sports car and a phalanx of support staff and vehicles crowding the background.

Sharing his colleagues enthusiasm Hammond also took to Twitter to state: “The band is back together and it feels brilliant.”

Hammond's eagerness is understandable given reports that he and his colleagues stand to rake in $6m each for their budget busting deal with the streaming entertainment provider. In return they will produce 36 episodes of a new Top Gear-style motoring show over three years.
