Last May, it was rumoured that the ‘Top Gear’ host's wife, Frances, was divorcing him after 20 years of marriage, around the time he was involved in a racism scandal that threatened to put the brakes on his career.

Neither party confirmed the divorce was happening at the time, but in his text message to Piers - sent to him last Summer and now shared in The Mirror - he appears to reveal that he and Frances have split, and that their break-up has been particularly “difficult”.

It has now been claimed that some dates on the ‘Top Gear Live’ tour have been postponed, including dates for this weekend in Norway being rescheduled.

Later this week, a report is due to be handed to BBC director general Tony Hall about the Clarkson “fracas”, after which a decision will be reached about his future on the motoring show.
