MANCHESTER-born billionaire Sir Jim Ratcliffe is Britain’s richest man – and ranked 25th on the Sunday Times rich list.
But who has this enterprising Ineos boss dated over the years? And does he have children? – Here’s everything you need to know.
Who is Jim Ratcliffe’s ex-wife Amanda Townson?
Sir Jim Ratcliffe owns mansions, superyachts and even two football clubs – and he appears to be on the hunt for another popular sporting name.
And following reports that Ratcliffe had expressed interest in buying Manchester United Football Club in August 2022, attention turned to his family life.
In 1985, the chemical engineer and businessman married his first wife, Amanda Townson.
The couple married in 1985 and were married for a decade – before divorcing in 1995.
Since divorcing her ex-husband, Amanda Townson has stayed out of the spotlight and has kept her personal life extremely private.
Does Jim Ratcliffe have children?
Ratcliffe is the proud father of three children – from two separate relationships.
He shares two children with his ex-wife Amanda – two sons, George Ratcliffe and Samuel Ratcliffe.
His eldest son George has followed in his father’s footsteps as he also works at chemicals giant Ineos – a British multinational chemicals company.
In 2020 it was announced that the son of the Ineos boss would be chief operating officer of a new global healthcare company after successfully producing millions of bottles of hand sanitizer for the NHS at the height of the coronavirus crisis.
He also has a daughter, Julia, whom he shares from his second relationship with Italian tax attorney Maria Alessia Maresca, aka Alicia Ratcliffe.
In 2019, Ratcliffe was seen spending time with his only daughter as they christened the Ineos Team UK America’s Cup boat, the ‘Britannia’ during its launch event in Portsmouth.
The father-daughter duo could be seen smiling after sweet snaps and spraying champagne over British competitive sailor Sir Ben Ainslie – after teaming up with the Olympic hero to form Ineos Team UK.
Who did Jim Ratcliffe date?
The Monaco-based billionaire has dated three women – but he prefers to keep the details of his love life to himself.
He is reportedly dating Catherine Polli.
