The name ‘Caudwell’ may ring bells for many for being one of the best-known children’s charities in the UK – Caudwell Children.
Now, we get to meet the man and billionaire behind the charity – John Caudwell. He sold Phones 4u in 2006 for just under 1.5 billion pounds, now Channel 4 follow him as he attempts to create one of the most expensive homes in Britain.
He’s the man at the centre of Channel 4’s ‘Britain’s Most Expensive Home: Building for a Billionaire’. Does John Caudwell have a wife? Let’s get to know more about his love life…
John Caudwell wife
In his life, John has had three wives. The first was Kate McFarlane, the pair were married for 25 years, then violinist Jane Burgess. Finally, John was married to Claire Johnson for 15 years.
John, 66, has five children and is now in a relationship with Modesta Vžesniauskaitė, 35. The pair met five years ago in Monaco on a bike ride.
Modesta said: “We spent about eight hours talking all the way from the start to the finish line. One day I felt chemistry, I felt this man is more than a friend. But the age gap was a big question for myself.”
She explained during the Channel 4 show that she was looking for a man no more than 10 years older than her, no one divorced and no one with children.
She continued: “When I met John, somehow that wasn’t that important.”
