Jeremy Clarkson boasts of easy life with his former Top Gear co-stars
Jeremy Clarkson and mates are filming new show in North Africa
Their former show Top Gear has been at the centre of controversy over alleged scenes of cars ‘donutting’ near the Cenotaph war memorial in London.
And Jeremy Clarkson appeared to be send a thinly veiled message to his former employers as he shared pictures of himself, Richard Hammond and James May filming their new Amazon Prime show in North Africa.
Taking to Twitter, the motoring show host shared an image of the trio sat together whilst a glorious landscape could be seen behind them as he wrote: ‘We are flat out in North Africa this week.’

The sacked BBC star then shared a blissful image of the trio standing in front of a large pool and palm trees saying: ‘We have had such a successful day's filming, we've knocked off early.’
It was also recently revealed that the new BBC series of Top Gear could soon be available to watch on Netflix as the streaming service considers a head-to-head battle with rival Amazon Prime which will air Clarkson's new show.
The motoring show, which is currently filming, will be presented by BBC veteran Chris Evans, former Friends actor Matt LeBlanc and will feature The Stig, Formula 1 commentator Eddie Jordan, German racing driver Sabine Schmitz, motoring journalist Chris Harris and car reviewer Rory Reid.

However the eight-episode series, which was supposed to premier on May 8, has reportedly been delayed and will be shorter due to delays affecting the filming schedule.
Pressure is continuing to mount on Top Gear bosses after it emerged the highly controversial scenes of cars 'donutting' near the Cenotaph war memorial cost licence fee-payers around $240,000 to film.
Chris Evans has sought to play down his role in the filming of the sequences, in which fellow presenter Matt Le Blanc and a stunt driver filled Whitehall with smoke and burning rubber by wheel-spinning in the shadow of Britain's main war memorials.
The BBC has admitted it knew of plans to film the controversial scenes in Whitehall for six months, after seeking council and police permission to use one of the country's most famous streets as a backdrop for its revamped show.
But, despite apologising, Evans has insisted he wasn't behind the idea, saying: 'This isn't a shoot I'm particularly involved in. I was away with family over the weekend'.
The scenes, which required a council and police-approved road closure and took a large film crew hours to shoot, will now not feature in the new series of the show, which is due to air in May.
