Nigella Lawson has been spotted out and about without her wedding ring.
The 53-year-old was snapped in public for the first time since she moved out of the marital home last Sunday.
The couple have been married for 10 years.
According to The Sun, Nigella spent a lot of time talking on her telephone but more noticeably wasn’t wearing her wedding band.
The television chef has been staying at an apartment in central London since photographs emerged of her husband of 10 years Charles Saatchi grabbing her throat during a meal at a seafood restaurant.
This is the coverage of the restaurant incident.
Onlookers told the newspaper: “She clearly has a lot of things on her mind. You could tell she had had a few stressful days… Things have clearly taken their toll.”
Earlier this week Saatchi accepted a caution from police for the incident. He is reported to have said that his wife is only living elsewhere until “the dust had settled.”
