Richard Hammond, a key figure in the motoring world and co-star of The Grand Tour, has recently made some intriguing revelations regarding his family and career. During a press event for the show’s latest special, “A Scandi Flick,” Hammond spoke candidly about his daughters and his stance on reality television.
The 52-year-old TV star and father of two, Izzy, 21, and Willow, 19, shared his thoughts on their potential participation in popular reality shows like Love Island.
“I can’t stop my daughters doing anything they want to do, they’re 21 and 19 and terrifying,” Hammond stated.
“If they want to do something they will do it, but I don’t imagine they would want to, to be honest.”
“I think they’ve been asked but I doubt it. That’s for them to decide, but I’m not going to try and stop them.”
The conversation then shifted to his professional life, particularly his experiences on The Grand Tour. Hammond expressed a distinct lack of interest in participating in reality TV himself, saying:
“I don’t think I would want to do reality TV personally, I’m kind of boring I don’t need to show the world that.”
His comments come in the backdrop of a dramatic event in the latest Grand Tour special. Co-host James May suffered a crash in a tunnel, resulting in a hospital stay, a situation that Hammond admits he was “selfishly relieved” to avoid. The upcoming episode promises to be an adrenaline-fueled adventure, featuring a high-stakes tunnel race led by Jeremy Clarkson, navigating in near-total darkness. This incident is indicative of the risks and excitement that The Grand Tour continues to deliver to its audience.
