The former stars of Top Gear have been spotted in Crickhowell where they are believed to be filming the latest series of their rival show The Grand Tour.

Jeremy Clarkson, Richard Hammond and James May left the long running BBC programme following several high profile rows involving Clarkson.

The trio then agreed to front a new motoring series, for internet-based television service Amazon Prime Video, from 2016.

Hammond and James May were spotted in Crickhowell on Tuesday, May 8 and Clarkson, who is currently presenting Who Wants To Be a Millionaire, was also believed to be present.

Kier Hughes, of Glangrwyney, took a selfie with Hammond after he heard the presenters were filming at Crickhowell Conservative Club, which has been closed for a number of years.

A photograph of Hammond, behind the wheel of a large white 4x4, was also posted on Twitter by local police.

Personal trainer Kier, 23, said he met Hammond at around 5pm: "As soon as I heard about it I went up to the Con’ Club. Richard Hammond was there and Jeremy Clarkson as well, but I didn’t have a picture of him I think he was hiding behind a wall.

"I didn’t really have a chance to ask them what it was all about, I think they were still on set.

"I was just walking through town, by the Beaufort pub, and I think someone passing said they were filming so I walked up there to have a look.

"Richard Hammond was fine, he seemed a bit busy, but was laughing and joking.

"I do watch The Grand Tour now and again."

Kier said all three presenters were also seen driving three trucks through Crickhowell.

Hammond posed for a photograph with Kier and friends Andrew Baird and Joe Lewis.
