The Grand Tour is still early in its first season, but the Amazon-streamed show is already setting records as fans illegally downloaded the programme.

According to the Daily Mail, the first episode of the new show has been downloaded 7.9 million times, while episodes two and three have been pirated 6.4 million and 4.6 million downloads, respectively.

That puts The Grand Tour well ahead of other top pirated shows like Game of Thrones and The Walking Dead.

Clarkson and his Top Gear co-hosts Richard Hammond and James May created The Grand Tour after Clarkson was fired from Top Gear for punching a producer.
