Frances Cain’s Married Life as Jeremy Clarkson’s Wife.
Frances Cain met her husband, Jeremy Clarkson, back when his career was just about to take shape. The hot-rod enthusiast was previously married to his first wife, Alexandra James. However, she left him for his best friend, barely a year into their marriage.
Cain worked for Clarkson as his manager, and it was during this time that they interacted. With time, love blossomed and led up to his second marriage in Fulham, the year 1993. The honeymoon phase was quite long as all was well in Clarksville.
Their marriage gave forth three children, namely Emily, Katya, and Finlo Clarkson. By the time trouble came knocking on their matrimonial doors, the couple had already spent 27 years and ten months as husband and wife. That said, here’s everything that went wrong leading up to their divorce.
The Real Reason Jeremy and Ex-Wife Frances Cain’s Divorce.
After Clarkson’s first failed marriage and the hurt that followed, he was never the same. There were several cheating allegations that cropped up during his marriage to Frances Cain. For starters, controversial news broke out that he was still seeing his ex-wife, Alexandra James.
Upon leaving Clarkson for his best friend, Stephen Hall, James realized the mistake she had made and embarked on a seven-year-long affair with Jeremy. Being a public figure, he filed an injunction to bind her from being too candid about their cheating spree.
Other notable mentions Clarkson had brief flings with include Elaine Bedell, a reputable English journalist, and producer. Their affair was dated back in the year 2002. About a decade later, Jeremy was rumored to have a fling with events planner Philippa Sage. While this was happening in 2011, Frances Cain was already estranged from her husband.
By 2014, the once formidable couple ended their marriage in a nasty split. According to online reports, the divorce settlement alone would have him cough up more than €10 million.

“Jeremy is the frontman and behind the scenes she was the swan paddling frantically under the surface. She deserves every penny she since she worked for it.”
