Former Top Gear presenter Jeremy Clarkson has tweeted that things may not be going all that smoothly on his new show – after he uploaded a picture of a car being stopped by the police.
Heading up the picture with a rather ambiguous 'My night', the new Amazon Prime presenter showed a BMW having been pulled over by police in a Volvo.
The mysterious tweet doesn't give too much information away – and fails to reveal whether the police had stopped Clarkson or a colleague.
Clarkson is currently filming a new motoring programme, along with former Top Gear co-stars Richard Hammond and James May.
It also comes in the wake of an announcement by Top Gear host Chris Evans, telling fans that his new co-presenter will be Matt LeBlanc, of 'Friends' fame.
The new series of Top Gear is due to start in May, and LeBlanc tweeted the announcement that he would be joining the team, saying: "As a car nut and a massive fan of Top Gear, I'm honoured and excited to be part of the iconic show's new chapter. What a thrill!"
Le Blanc carried the title of fastest 'Star in a Reasonably Priced Car' when he appeared on the show back in 2012.
Evans responded by saying: "Acting out our craziest car notions on screen is a dream job and I know we'll both be debating some epic road trip ideas."
It is widely reported that Clarkson's new Amazon Prime series has been given a £4 million budget for each show – almost ten times the amount of financial backing given to the BBC show.
