Jeremy Clarkson, Top Gear host, who laughed at the claims of an affair with a colleague and poured scorn on reports of Twitter that I had an affair with socialite Jemima Khan, has written that is to spend time away the family home.
His friends say Clarkson and Frances - who have been marrierd 18 years - are spending time apart at the time by "mutual agreement", said MailOnline.
A source close to Clarkson confirmed that the couple needed space in his attempt to recover from allegations of infidelity Clarkson.
Writing in his regular newspaper column, a father of three Clarkson, 50, was in reflective mood, discussing self-pity as evidence that domesticated man faces alone.
"So when I recently moved into an unfurnished apartment the first night I spent sitting on the floor, wondering what is essential and what really is not," he wrote.
"Obviously I would need a fridge and a kitchen. But what about the dishwasher? Could not wash the pots myself? I decided I could. I also decided I could do without a washing machine. Although this is primarily because 'I've never used one. I do not understand. It seems to make no sense.
"So do not. I would like my clothes to the laundry and let someone in general nylon wash for me."
Clarkson does not reveal why he was living in an apartment in London instead of the $ 3,000,000 house he shares with his wife in Chipping Norton, Oxfordshire.
He goes on to decide he would "definitely" need a television, coffee machine and a PlayStation, admitting:"You really can not live unless spend at least an hour a day of shooting Nazi zombies in the face"
The list is complete when you add the need for singles final - pornography.
"And I need pornography, and so that means you'd need an Internet," he wrote.
At the end of the column, the mood of the presenter is even sadder. After struggling with their internal needs, admits that only three of the four elements in his apartment actually work.
"So if you lose your job and end up living in a barn, with only a fire for warmth and nothing to eat but what you can find coverage, be happy," he wrote.
"Because it has a much better life than me." Who is noticed that there is a message on the TV screen. Apparently, there is no satellite signal being received."
