Let’s explore the hitherto unknown details about his wife, daughter, the divorce case that followed, and titbits that make up this celebrity’s story.

Jeremy Clarkson was born on the 11th day of April 1960 to Edward Grenville Clarkson, his father who was a traveling salesman and Shirley Gabrielle, his mother who was a teacher. When he was born, his family was going through a period of financial difficulty but this passed away in his teens when things improved for the better.
Jeremy was a shy kid when he enrolled at Hill House School in Doncaster and continued being same when his parents moved him over to Repton School. As a student, he was an easy pick for bullies and eventually found himself amongst bad company with whom he smoked, drank and became notorious. Shortly before his A-level exams, he was expelled.
He went home to his parents and joined their then booming family business of making toys. From the savings he accumulated, young Jeremy Clarkson started the Motoring Press Agency with journalist Jonathan Gill. They did road tests for schools and wrote reviews on them in local newspapers and magazines. The niche was a profitable one and this encouraged him to get trained as a journalist with Rotherham Advertiser.
Jeremy Clarkson wrote for Performance Car, Amstrad CPC game reviews, The Sun, and The Sunday Times before becoming a TV presenter for the British motoring program Top Gear in 1988. He was totally involved with the reviewing of its magazine from 1993 to 2015.

Jeremy Clarkson’s Family; His Wife, Daughter, and Divorce
Jeremy Clarkson was married to Alexandra James just for 6 months after their 1989 wedding at St Andrew’s Church in South Warnborough, Hampshire; their honeymoon was in Mauritius. Alexandra was said to have left Jeremy for a friend of Jeremy’s.
Jeremy again found love with his manager Frances Cain and took her to the altar in May 1993. Their marriage saw to the birth of three children; two girls and a boy. Frances was reported to have filed for divorce in April 2014 amidst rumors that Jeremy was seeing Elaine Bedell and Phillipa Sage. It was equally alleged that the man rekindled the love relationship between him and his former wife, Alexander. However, the television host denied these claims.
His relationship with Lisa Hogan was exposed in February 2017 when news and pictures of their being together surfaced online. Lisa who is a plane crash survivor is about a decade younger than him. The two have since then remained together and seems to have the approval of their fans and the general public.
Prior to this, however, Clarkson’s first wife made some shocking revelations about what was going on between her and her ex-husband while he was still married to his second wife. According to her, she still loves her first husband (Jeremy Clarkson) and didn’t consider what she was doing with him as adultery because they were once married.
