THE Grand Tour's Jeremy Clarkson says the new Amazon special filmed in Scotland has been cut short due to delays enforced by coronavirus.
The Grand Tour’s fourth season is set to return with an hour-long special emanating from the Outer Hebrides of Scotland.
Clarkson, 60, confirmed how long the next special episode would be and revealed his frustration at the delays caused by the pandemic.
Opting not to give much away on the new episode, Jeremy shared: “We’ve just been to the Outer Hebrides, it’s not a 90 minute special but a 60 minute one.”
Before COVID hit, The Grand Tour's original plans involved visiting Russia for another instalment for season four.
He added: "In some ways it makes me a bit annoyed because I’ve got so little of the world left to see and I’m not getting round and seeing it.
“I would love to be in Zimbabwe right now, or Iran, or any other handful of countries I haven’t been to and ticking them all off. But, I’m not.”
Producer Andy Wilman also contracted COVID-19 earlier in the year, since recovered from his period of illness.
Fans hope the new episode will hit screens at some point in 2021.
In other news Jeremy has been forced to bid farewell to his beloved custom Bentley.

The luxe vehicle, which was kitted out with heavy duty enhancements to tackle Madagascar's roughest roads, was driven by Clarkson in the latest special Grand Tour episode A Massive Hunt.
He enjoyed driving it so much that he decided to have it shipped back to his home in the UK to keep.
Unfortunately it wasn't meant to be – as he was subsequently told he had to scrap the Bentley because of its custom build.
A disappointed Jeremy revealed: "It took a while but, eventually, the Bentley arrived back in Britain, and I was very happy.
"But then came word from the Driver and Vehicle Licensing Agency – the Bentley had started in life as a development mule and the rules say these must be destroyed to ensure they don’t ever seep onto the market."
