Jeremy Clarkson's 'difficult divorce'

Jeremy Clarkson is going through a "difficult divorce".

The 'Top Gear' presenter told his former rival Piers Morgan about his split from Frances Cain, his wife of 21 years, when the pair met to end their long-time feud.

Recalling the conversation in his Mail on Sunday column, Piers wrote: "'Morgan,' he sighed, 'I'm going through a difficult divorce, my first ex-wife has also came out of the woodwork to give me hell, I'm smoking too much, drinking too much, my back hurts, I'm all over the papers with this N-word scandal, I'm at war with my BBC bosses, and my mother has just died. I simply don't have the energy for you any more.'

"'I'm actually relieved,' I replied, 'because I've run out of vile epithets in the English language to deploy about you. There are only so many ways I can call you a fat, useless ****.'"

On top of the troubles in his personal life, Jeremy is currently suspended from the BBC after a "fracas" with a producer of the motoring show he co-hosts.

He is awaiting the report from an internal investigation, led by the Director of BBC Scotland, Ken MacQuarrie, into the allegations made against him.

But if he does face the chop, he may "sue" the BBC, a source has claimed.

They said previously: "There is no doubt that if Jeremy is fired it won't be the end of it. Lawyers will be involved."
