Featuring former Top Gear trio Jeremy Clarkson, James May and Richard Hammond, the show quickly became the most-watched premiere in Amazon's streaming service history, knocking former record holder The Man in the High Castle off its perch.

Speaking this week, the company said in a statement: "Millions of Prime members streaming the first episode in the US, UK, Germany, Austria and Japan" were a part of making it such a massive success story.

Amazon CEO Jeff Bezos also spoke about the record, saying: "The guys are back, doing what they do best - the chemistry between Jeremy, Richard and James is what makes The Grand Tour so entertaining.

"Their creativity, along with the amazing production quality and 4K HDR streaming, has Prime members responding in a big way. Kudos and congrats to the whole team."

The Grand Tour continues Fridays on Amazon Prime.
