Jeremy Clarkson alleged to have had affair with former wife

Top Gear presenter Jeremy Clarkson has come under fire for allegedly having an affair with his former wife, Alexandra Hall, whilst married to his current wife, Frances. He is said to have revealed himself as one of the super-injunction celebrities in a move to make the claims public.

The Daily Mail, in reporting the story, advises that if men want to protect their reputation, they should behave. But is it just men who are guilty of having affairs? In my experience of drafting divorce petitions, men are no more likely to have affairs than women. And a recent survey by a leading firm of accountants found that, for the first year since the survey began, having an affair slipped to the second most cited ground for divorce; the most common cited ground was simply growing apart or falling out of love.

And the implications for Mr Clarkson? A divorce settlement which will no doubt make the headlines.
