Jeremy Clarkson appears to be taking things to the next level for his new Amazon Prime car show.

The former Top Gear star posted a selfie in which he's bleeding and his face is covered in black soot after he attempted his "most dangerous stunt".

He tweeted the pic on on Friday with the caption, "I survived the day.  Just."

The TV presenter was in Amman in Jordan when the stunt took place.

On Thursday he had tweeted, "Tomorrow morning, I'm doing the most dangerous stunt I've ever attempted.  This may well be a goodbye".

Some fans were unimpressed by Clarkson's selfie, accusing him via Twitter of faking it.

The show will arrive on Amazon Prime in the autumn.

Meanwhile, rapper Tinie Tempah, has accused BBC's Top Gear of being deliberately controversial in an attempt to gain publicity.

The show came under fire last month when Matt LeBlanc was filmed performing a stunt near the Cenotaph war memorial in London.

Tinie Tempah, who has filmed a guest appearance on the new show, hosted by Chris Evans, told The Sun newspaper he believed it was a deliberate move.

"If I’m being honest with you, I think they like the controversy," he said. "Maybe I’m just a bit more jaded and older now but I think Top Gear has started to become a controversial show and that is obviously what’s selling it.

"People don’t realise that just because someone has said something bad about you, that might be the nature of what your product is at the time - it’s infamous, it’s notorious, it’s badass. It gives it more notoriety and people are still going to watch it.”

Of host Chris Evans, he said, "I saw how he was while we were filming. He was very much on top of it. He was like, ‘Shut up, it’s not going to work, let’s not do that. No, that’s too long.’

“Even though Chris is the star, he is on top of every little thing and I respect that.”
