Jeremy Clarkson's new Amazon show The Grand Tour has been temporarily grounded as his flight to South Africa to film faced long delays.

Former Top Gear presenter Clarkson took to Twitter to ask if fans could provide him with a plane as his scheduled flight was struck with a 12-hour wait.

He is heading to Johannesburg to film the first studio recording for the show, which also stars Richard Hammond and James May.

The pre-recorded studio segments will be filmed in a large tent in front of a live audience in locations around the world.

The Grand Tour is set to launch on Amazon Prime this autumn.
