'The Grand Tour' bosses want to make a spin-off without the original hosts.

The motoring show's producer Andy Wilman has plans to temporarily replace Jeremy Clarkson, Richard Hammond and James May with some special guests for a range of one-off episodes.

Speaking to the Daily Star newspaper, he said: "I'd love to do a specialised show under 'The Grand Tour' banner. 'The Grand Tour' with... blah doing blah. I don't know who blah is.

"Say, Brian Johnson from AC/DC. He's a car nut, I love him. But that's not our call, that's Amazon. All those things are fanciful but I'll do them."

However, the producer would only offer the spin-off as special episodes as he knows loyal fans tune in to watch the top trio in action.

He explained: "They are the show. Shows such as 'I'm A Celebrity' or 'The Apprentice', the format or title of the show is probably bigger than the cast. So, you can have spin-offs because you're talking about that format.

"There's no plan for a series because this ultimately is 'Last of The Summer Wine' in action, three men bumbling their way through the world."

Meanwhile, Jeremy - who is a long-time pal of Andy - is to front a new farming show for Amazon Prime.

The working title of 'I Bought The Farm' will see the television presenter attempt to run his own 1000-acre working farm in the British countryside.

However, though he isn't planning to help Hammond or May with their solo projects, the veteran producer admitted he is willing to give Jeremy a hand.

He said: "I'm going to help Jeremy with 'I Bought The Farm' in the edit, because [that] dynamic we've had forever and a day, but I wouldn't go near the other ones."
