It's no secret that Apple and Amazon have had a rocky relationship, so it was a bit of a surprise when the Cupertino giant announced in June at WWDC that Prime Video is coming to its Apple TV digital media player. Summer came, but the app was nowhere to be found. Apple then issued an update saying the app's release was moved to September, but that didn't happen as well. It starts on Amazon Prime Video on Friday 8 December and will run for 13 episodes in total, with one added to the streaming platform each subsequent Friday.

The app comes just in time for the launch of the second series of The Grand Tour - the car-related TV show starring ex-Top Gear presenters Jeremy Clarkson, Richard Hammond and James May.
