James May speaks out on The Grand Tour cancellation rumours and confirms future of himself, Clarkson and Hammond

James May has opened up on The Grand Tour cancellation rumours and the future of himself, Jeremy Clarkson and Richard Hammond.

The Grand Tour fans can sleep better at night knowing that James May has dismissed the show's cancellation rumours - while also reminding viewers of the inevitable.

The iconic trio of Jeremy Clarkson, James May and Richard Hammond are returning for The Grand Tour: Eurocrash, an upcoming special of the Prime Video show.

Starting in Gdansk, Poland, the three car enthusiasts will embark on a 1,400 mile journey down through Slovakia, Hungary and Slovenia.

The catch is that they'll be driving 'cars nobody would ever dream of' and will be competing in a range of challenges along the way, which include Soviet style Formula 1.

Viewers will also need to keep their eyes peeled as there's also supposed to be a 'famous racing driver' showing up at some point.

Amid fan excitement for the new special, TV presenter May has confirmed his short term future on the show, as well as Clarkson's and Hammond's.

The 60-year-old did admitted that the show will be coming to a 'natural end' at some point - but denied that the trio had been asked to leave.

May told RadioTimes.com: "I mean, some people have said we've been cancelled.

"But really we're getting quite close to the end of our contract, but we didn't really have any particular plans to keep going because we're all really just getting a bit old.

"It might be time to let someone else have a crack at it."

He added: "It doesn't mean we're going to stop making TV.

"We might still make our individual things - farming or science or mending cars or whatever it is we get up to.

"But I don't know, to be honest. No one has told us to go away.

"It's reaching its natural end, like parties do.

"There comes a point at 4am when it is over."

But, as for The Grand Tour, they still have two more seasons coming up, as well as the Eurocrash.

And Clarkson told RadioTimes: "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 30s and 40s.

"But now we’re in our 50s and 60s, so I'm slightly nervous about the next two."

And while the world of TV has endless possibilities, May previously admitted that he would never go near Jeremy's Clarkson Farm.

He told LADbible: "A few people have said, 'oh why don't you get James and Richard to come and do a few bits on the show'.

"I don't think he should do that, I don't think he wants to anyway but it's not that kind of show.

"I think it's his farm and it's his thing and that's good.

"If I was doing a film about my workshop, I wouldn't want those two in it going 'oh I've literally broken it'.

"I'd smack them over the head with a shovel and throw them out."
