Jeremy Clarkson has taken to social media to poke fun at the “desperate situation” he was in with The Grand Tour co-stars James May and Richard Hammond after their flight was cancelled.
The presenter, who co-hosted the BBC series Top Gear with the same two pals for many years, gave fans an insight into the team’s disrupted travel plans.
Clarkson’s Farm star Jeremy was first to update his 7.1 million Instagram followers on the situation, posting a picture of his co-stars sitting across from him at a lavish-looking dinner table.
“BA have messed up our flight home so we are marooned here at a luxury camp in Botswana,” he explained.
“With only 40 staff. It’s all about survival now,” he added cheekily.

“Let’s all hope BA stop all flights and keep you out in your natural habitat,” his Amazon Prime co-star Kaleb Cooper then quipped back in the comments section.
Meanwhile, James took to Twitter to joke about the situation with his 3.2 million followers.
He wrote: “BREAKING Grand tour presenters MAROONED in Botswana wildlife paradise following cancellation of BA flight home. Updates to follow.”
