Presenters Jeremy Clarkson, Richard Hammond and James May have arrived in Belfast ahead of their first live tour since leaving Top Gear.

It will mark the first time the trio will appear together following Clarkson’s controversial exit from the popular motoring show, which led to his co-presenters following suit.

The visit comes just after Clarkson’s interview when he admitted to BBC Radio 2 presenter Chris Evans that getting axed from the show had left ‘a big hole’.

And he insisted he has “absolutely no idea” what his future holds - but he is “not going to be a milkman”.

The presenter’s contract with the BBC was not renewed after he punched a producer in a row over on-set catering.

This week the trio will host their all-new live show at the Odyssey Arena in the city.

Clarkson, Hammond & May Live runs from Friday May 22 to Sunday May 24 and promises to be an “action packed 90-minute arena show with new, never before seen sequences, as well as all of the supercars, stunts, explosions, tyre smoke and irreverent humour you’d expect from the three biggest car presenters on the planet”.

According to organisers other highlights include the world’s largest Cage of Death, where seven motorcyclists use centrifugal force to circle the inside of a giant globe and a spectacular driving sequence featuring two custom built BMW M3s covered in over 600 metres of LED – a collaboration with LED performance company, Feeding the Fish.

Creative Director Rowland French said: “The three presenters have been working incredibly hard to make sure it’s better than ever before, and I’m certainly looking forward to seeing them back doing what they do best. If you love the three boys, then this is the only place to see them.”

Tickets for the Clarkson, Hammond and May Live at the Odyssey Arena from Friday May 22 to Sunday May 24 are priced from £38 and available from www.livenation.co.uk
