The Grand Tour's James May has shared an exciting update on the show's latest season.

Speaking on BBC Sounds The Today Podcast, May sneakily revealed when the next instalment would be released.

"I'm not allowed to tell you what date it's coming out, so I won't say that it's September," he told hosts Nick Robinson and Amol Rajan. Confident in his revelation, he added: "I can say anything I want now, frankly."

The series, which May presents alongside Jeremy Clarkson and Richard Hammond, is coming to an end with its fifth season.

"We've done it for nearly 22 years – a lot longer than we thought we would," he said, referring to the trio's time on BBC's Top Gear and Prime Video's The Grand Tour.

"I thought, when I started doing it in 2003 or 2004, that this was a bit of a laugh. Maybe it'll last a few years. And, here we are, grey and wizened and sagging. And we've only just stopped doing it. It's quite remarkable," he mused.

Much to the disappointment of their fans, May confirmed he, Clarkson and Hammond would not be making "another series together about cars."

However, he then added: "Well, hang on. You should never say no, should you? I think it is pretty unlikely."

Discussing what's next for him as this chapter closes, he joked: "My greatest remaining ambition is to get to the end of my life without running over anybody. Because I've managed it so far and it would be deeply ironic and very unpopular if it happened now."

The Grand Tour is available to stream on Prime Video.
