Jeremy Clarkson's ex-wife penning book about 'affair'

Friday October 28, 2011

Days after Jeremy Clarkson lifted a gagging order on his first wife – who claims they had an affair after he married again – comes the news she has written a book.

Alex Hall has enlisted the help of Max Clifford to help her find a publisher.

The PR boss says her story could even be turned in to a film.

"There's an awful lot of interest," he says. "The book is written and ready to go. I shall be having talks with publishers."

Jeremy married Alex, now 46, in 1989 but they split less than two years later. He married his current wife Francie, 50, in 1993. 

The Top Gear presenter won an injunction against Alex last year to stop her publishing details about his private life.

These details included claims that the former couple had a seven or eight year affair after he remarried – claims which Jeremy denies.

The 51-year-old said he regretted seeking an injunction and decided to have it lifted, effectively unmasking himself.

He wants the allegations to be judged in public, he says.
