Although, Mr Clarkson said it was likely this date could change as he previously assumed the Christmas Madagascar special would be aired in May. The trio filmed the Scotland special during the coronavirus pandemic as foreign travel was made more difficult. 

Speaking on the Andy Jaye podcast, Mr Clarkson said: “We’ve done Scotland and I know they are saying in the edit it is very unplugged.

“We couldn’t go abroad obviously, I think everyone will understand why, so we did Scotland.”

When asked when the show could possibly air, he hinted the show was set for a summer release date.

He said: “I would have guessed you would have seen Madagascar in May and here we are in December.

“So when is Scotland happening? Ready steady, June.

“It won’t be, it won’t be but it could be shown in June I think.”

The trio was spotted filming in the Scottish Highlands in October last year during filming of the new special.

They were seen behind the wheel of American classics with Clarkson opting for a blue Lincoln.

James May was spotted driving a red Cadillac with Richard Hammond opting for a green Buick.

Jeremy has previously hinted they hoped to do another special in 2021 to ensure two are released this year.

He told Andy Jaye: “We’re down to do several more, several more let’s put it like that.

“Which is great. It’s great from our point of view.

“The thing is Richard and James and I pretend to hate each other but when we get together – and we don’t get together on purpose when we’re not working – but when we do [we] immediately fall about laughing.

“And then we just laugh and laugh and laugh the whole time we are together.

“It’s a chemistry that hasn’t been manufactured, its evolved over many many years which is great.”

The trio decided to pull away from the traditional Grand Tour tent after Series 3 last year to concentrate on feature-length specials.

The second of these specials was released by Amazon just before Christmas with the multi-part Madagascar special “A Massive Hunt”.

The journey sees the hosts search for hidden treasure on the African island in three high-performance production cars.

Speaking on Good Morning Britain about the Scotland special, Richard Hammond confirmed the show would air “later on this year”.

He said: “There’s another special coming up and we managed to get one done.

“I mean, it’s difficult going anywhere because obviously it’s about travel and that’s been off the cards.

“But there is another one, coming out later on this year.”
