When presenting Top Gear, James May always uttered the phrase, "Oh, cock!" whenever something went wrong. Since leaving Top Gear James May has refrained from using this phrase on The Grand Tour as Top Gear have claimed they own the catchphrase due to copyright. Much to the annoyance of James May as this is a regular phrase he would use on an everyday basis.
