The TV presenter spoke to LADbible ahead of a new one off special for The Grand Tour where the iconic trio of Clarkson, Hammond and May head off to France.

The second 'Lockdown Special' is titled as The Grand Tour Presents: Carnage a Trois, where the three car fanatics 'dive into the bizarre world of French car culture'.

However, when asked about making an appearance on Clarkson's Farm, May explains why he wouldn't be massively keen.

May said: "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."

May also admitted that farming isn't really his thing.

He added: "Well, I've watched a bit of it, obviously.

"You know I think it's quite interesting but I was saying to someone the other day, I don't want to do farming myself because I think that farming is just 'big gardening' and gardening is one of the things I don't do at home."

Despite being such a formidable group, the former Top Gear host went on to say that he doesn't socialise with his co-hosts outside of work.

He said: "In our lives, generally, for the best part of 20 years now, there have been some years where I have spent more time with those two, and certainly more intense time with them almost 24 hours a day.

"That's more intense than I spend with people - like ,you know, my brothers and sisters and Sarah and people of whom I have genuine love.

"So, no, we don't have much need to socialise and of course over the Covid period, we couldn't really socialise because that wasn't allowed.

The synopsis for The Grand Tour Presents: Carnage a Trois reads: "In this second Lockdown Special, the trio dive into the bizarre world of French car culture.

"On an epic road trip starting in the Welsh hills, they dish up a hair raising mountain climb, bomb defusals, propellor powered cars, helicopter stunts and the most thrilling race of their lives before reaching the English Channel for a jaw dropping medieval climax. And a soupcon of French art house cinema."

The show will launch on 17 December 2021 and will be exclusive to watch on Amazon Prime Video.
