Top Gear star James May has spoken about his friendship with his Top Gear co-stars Richard Hammond and Jeremy Clarkson. In a new interview, the Grand Tour host, 59, explained the three aren’t as close as fans might think as he claimed they have different lifestyles.
James explained that a common misconception by many viewers was that the three motorheads might at first appear to be “a bit Brexit, or a bit UKIP.”
However, he went on to confirm that none of the three are like that.
He added that of the trio, he was definitely the least conservative-minded.
James claimed that while Richard and Jeremy are “trying to join the aristocracy” and “wear waistcoats and tweed”, such a lifestyle doesn’t appeal to him at all.

James said he would have been in a “nerdy gang”, while Richard would have been in the scouts.
As for Jeremy, James quipped that he would have been in “something nauseating” like the Young Farmers or “young Conservatives”.
He pointed out fans’ misconceptions that the Grand Tour clan are so close that they even live together.
Some people, he added, were under the impression that they “live together in a big house with some cars outside”.
