The last time Jeremy Clarkson was in Barbados, he was in the company of his colleagues, Richard Hammond and James May. They were busy filming a segment for The Grand Tour where their goal was to save the coral reefs of the world by creating a new reef. The idea was they would sink several stripped-out cars (or just one car, as it ended up being) in order to encourage reef growth. Let’s just hope his most recent trip to Barbados isn’t nearly as calamitous.
Clarkson was seen on February the 18th leaving the airport in Barbados with his new love interest. Since his split in 2014 with his second wife and manager, Frances Cain, he’s been romantically linked with several women. Most recently, however, he’s been seeing Lisa Hogan.
So, who is she? You might know her from a couple of different places. The Irish-born Hogan is the ex-wife of Baron Steven Bentinck, an eccentric playboy better known as Baron Bonkers. You might have also seen her in the movie Fierce Creatures. She was cast as the sea lion keeper, after catching the eye of John Cleese, who stars in the movie.
While in Barbados, the couple were the guests of Sir Andrew Lloyd Webber, a famous English composer, playwright, songwriter, and member of the House of Lords. He is also, technically, the Baron Lloyd-Webber, having been made a life peer. Think of a famous musical and it was probably done by him; Evita, Cats, The Phantom of the Opera, and Joseph and the Technicolor Dreamcoat, to name a few. Let’s hope they had a relaxing trip, because Clarkson was already back to the grindstone today, having been spotted at Gatwick Airport in London.
Even though Clarkson recently described his job on The Grand Tour as “going around the world, having holidays,” it’s also a lot of work, and soon it’ll all have to start all over again. According to the trio, planning for series two is already well under way, and filming is scheduled to begin soon. Especially if they are going to be premiering the new season before the end of the year.
