The 55-year-old presenter and his former 'Top Gear' co-hosts James May and Richard Hammond are set to front a new motoring show on Amazon Prime and although Jeremy was sacked from the BBC for punching a producer in a row over a steak, he's reportedly trumped his colleagues when it comes to wages.

While Clarkson - who has been replaced by BBC Radio 2 DJ Chris Evans on 'Top Gear' - will earn a whopping £10 million for each series, May, Hammond and producer Andy Wilman will each receive £7.2 million, an amount totalling over £30 million.

A source shared: ''Jeremy would be looking at £9.6 million a series with the other two not far behind, on the same deal as the producer. Clarkson may have lamped someone over a hot dinner but he'll be raking it in.''

In addition to the stars' payments, Amazon have also put aside £160 million for the three series that have so far been announced, meaning each individual episode will have a budget of £4.5 million.

However, a TV executive has insisted that although Amazon have dedicated a huge amount of money to the project, there is no guarantee that it will be as successful as 'Top Gear'.

He told the Daily Mirror newspaper: ''People are wondering if the programme will lose its charm.

''Having the three of them careering around in souped-up bangers was at the heart of what they did - giving them too much money could ruin all that.''
