Jeremy Clarkson will be hoping his new motoring show isn’t a car crash but it appears to have already been hit by one.

The former Top Gear host tweeted a picture of the results of an “accident” during filming in Barbados for his new Amazon Prime series, which is still yet to be named.

Clarkson shared the photograph of the vehicle’s mangled wreckage with his six million followers.

But he left people guessing about the cause of the “accident” by offering no explanation of what actually happened.

A spokeswoman for Clarkson was unable to provide any details of the incident.

Despite the apparent crash, there wasn’t much sympathy from Clarkson’s fellow presenter Richard Hammond.

Jeremy, Richard and their fellow host James May have been filming on the Caribbean island for more than a week.

The trio have been tweeting pictures during their stay ahead of the highly anticipated series which is set to rival their former show, now fronted by Chris Evans and Matt LeBlanc.
