Questions about engines are better directed to Jeremy Clarkson, the husband of Alexandra James. He is an English writer and journalist with a specialization in motorsport that goes back to the 80s when he started his motor journalism.
Let’s examine the hitherto unknown details about his wife, daughter, the ensuing divorce case, and the tidbits that make up the story of this celebrity.
Age, Early Life, and Rise to Fame
Jeremy Clarkson was born on 11 April 1960 as the son of 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 in his teenage years as things took a turn for the better.
Jeremy was a shy child when he enrolled at Hill House School in Doncaster and remained so when his parents moved him to Repton School. As a student he was easy prey for bullies and eventually found himself in bad company, smoking, drinking, and becoming notorious. He was expelled from school just before his A-level exams.
He went home to his parents and joined their then-booming family toy manufacturing business. With the savings he had accumulated, young Jeremy Clarkson and journalist Jonathan Gill founded the Motoring Press Agency. They did road tests for schools and wrote reviews about them in local newspapers and magazines. The niche was profitable and this encouraged him to train as a journalist with Rotherham Advertiser.

Jeremy Clarkson Family; His Wife, Daughter, and Divorce
Jeremy Clarkson was married to Alexandra James for only 6 months after their wedding in 1989 at St. Andrew’s Church in South Warnborough, Hampshire; they spent their honeymoon in Mauritius. Alexandra is said to have left Jeremy for a friend of Jeremy.
Jeremy found love again with his manager Frances Cain and took her to the altar in May 1993. Their marriage produced three children, two girls, and a boy. It was reported that Frances filed for divorce in April 2014 after rumors circulated that Jeremy had met with Elaine Bedell and Phillipa Sage. It was also alleged that the man rekindled the love affair between him and his former wife Alexander. However, the television host denied these allegations.
His relationship with Lisa Hogan was revealed in February 2017 when news and pictures of their being together appeared online. Lisa, who survived a plane crash, is about a decade younger than him. Since then the two have stayed together and seem to have the approval of their fans and the public.
Before that, however, Clarkson’s first wife had 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 is still in love with her first husband (Jeremy Clarkson) and did not consider what she did with him as adultery because they were once married.
