[Jeremy Clarkson] has admitted to being very anxious about the high expectations for the show which has a rumoured budget of £160m.
“It troubles me, actually,” the star has admitted.
“I lie awake at night going, ‘It’s just a car show’, because there’s been a lot of talk of massive budgets, and everybody is expecting the first programme to come from Jupiter, and for us all to have Iron Man suits and for it to be The Avengers. It isn’t. It’s three middle-aged men falling over.”
