Keith and Marj live in Margate. In an interview with The Sunday Times in January 2021, The Great Pottery Throw Down judge said his actual home is on the top floor of a tower block in Margate. He added: “My partner, Marje, and I love brutalist architecture. The building looks like a crack den from the outside, which we like, but inside it’s spotlessly clean. It was built in 1963 as a luxury holiday complex around the time package holidays took off, so it became a white elephant. Our flat hadn’t been occupied since the day it was built. We moved in six years ago after the building was renovated.”

In a 2013 interview with Whom You Know, Keith said about his wife: “I am proud of my wife for living with a complete workaholic and supporting me in my mission.”

Keith Brymer Jones First Wife

Keith Brymer Jones was previously married to his first wife. The marriage ended in divorce. Speaking about his best and worst financial decision, Brymer Jones said it was giving his house away to his ex-wife.

He told This is Money: “Giving my house away to my ex-wife. I bought a house in Whitstable in Kent for £78,500 in 2000. I gave it to her about four years ago, when it was worth £450,000. Our pensions and other assets were worth roughly the same. But a TV presenter I won’t name advised me to make her an offer she couldn’t refuse, to get a clean break divorce, so I did.”

He added: “I remember the judge saying: are you sure you want to do this? And I said, yes, absolutely. It gave my son, who was 11 at the time, security – it meant that he and my ex-wife didn’t have to move house.

“Divorces can be very messy and I still feel really good about what I did. It was my best and my worst financial decision.”
