After their flight was cancelled, Jeremy Clarkson and his Grand Tour co-stars found themselves in an awkward predicament.
The newest episode of the TV series, Eurocrash, debuted on Amazon Prime Video in June of this year, when the trio embarked on a 1,400-mile drive through Eastern Europe.
The show proved to be a high-octane spectacle for petrolheads and ardent fans of the former Top Gear presenters, with stunts ranging from driving aboard a moving jet to being fired at by horseback-riding archers.
Jeremy, 63, posted a photo of Richard Hammond, 53, and James May, 60, using their phones while eating following a flight delay.
‘BA messed up our flight home, so we’re marooned here in a luxurious camp in Botswana,’ he captioned the image.
‘With only 40 staff. It’s all about survival now.’

James also took a moment to joke about the situation on X, formerly known as Twitter.
He wrote: ‘BREAKING Grand tour presenters MAROONED in Botswana wildlife paradise following cancellation of BA flight home. Updates to follow.’
In a follow-up, James posted a picture of delicious-looking food platter with the caption: ‘LATEST Staff/guest ratio ‘as low as 40:1’ in hell-hole safari lodge where GT presenters have been abandoned by their crew. Cheese has arrived.’ (sic)

In terms of The Grand Tour’s future, James indicated that they are still signed up for a couple specials, which they are doing.
Jeremy told The Sun in June what was in store for the next few specials.
He said: ‘For the next one – in fact, the next two – we’re back on slightly scary ground, doing things that we used to do when we were in our thirties and forties.
‘But now we’re in our fifties and sixties, so I’m slightly nervous about the next two.
‘Let’s just say we’re going back to Africa, and this one’s a hard one. It’s hard if you’re young and fit, but I’m really not fit. And I’m very fat. And I’m 63 now.’
The Grand Tour is available to watch on Amazon Prime Video.
