Not only were the trio stranded at sea, also in the series Hammond nearly contracted sepsis.
He recalls the doctor having to act fast, as the infection could have left him in a life-threatening condition.
“The doctor said we had to stop it in its tracks because if it gets into your major arteries it can cause sepsis and it will kill you,” he recalled.
However, luckily for Hammond the situation was far less severe than anticipated.
The Grand Tour is available to stream on Amazon Prime Video.
