Claire Fellows is a costume designer who is best known as the ex-wife of chef and T.V. presenter Ainsley Harriott.
She first met her former husband at a clothes shop.
It was love at first sight for her ex-husband as he fell for her the moment he saw her.
The couple soon started dating. After dating for a year, the love birds tied wedding knot in 1989.
The husband and wife were living a happy married life until 2004 when news of her ex-husband having an affair with another lady surfaced the media.
The name of Ainsley’s mistress was not disclosed because he launched a legal battle to erase the rumors of an affair and the lady he was linked to.
Eight years later, the couple came up with shocking news that their marriage was over. A spokesman said,
“Their separation is completely amicable and, as yet, they have no definite plans for the future.”
What Was The Main Reason Behind Their Separation?
It is not clear yet as to what the actual reason was behind their separation.
Some believe it was because Ainsley was gay, while others believe that it was because of his extramarital affair.
There were rumors that he was gay in real life, and this could have been the reason why his wife left him.
His fans believed the rumors, which came as a surprise to him. He had to post a tweet to justify his sexuality.
In his tweet, he mentioned that people thought he is camp because he is happy.
He also said that he loves women as he was married once and even had kids with his wife.
How Many Children Does She Have?
Claire and her ex-husband were blessed with two children, namely Jimmy Harriott and Maddie Harriott.
