Jeremy Clarkson's switching to Amazon
Former Top Gear host Jeremy Clarkson has taken his new motoring show to Amazon with a jibe at the BBC, saying it felt like he had "climbed out of a biplane and into a spaceship".
Clarkson, whose contract was not renewed after he punched a member of the show's staff during a "fracas", is teaming up with co-hosts Richard Hammond and James May.
He said: "I feel like I've climbed out of a biplane and into a spaceship."
They have signed a deal with the online giant to make three series of 12 episodes each that will be available to Amazon Prime customers from next year.
May joked: "We have become part of the new age of smart TV. Ironic, isn't it?"
