The couple have not been spotted together since Saatchi was snapped grabbing Nigella by the throat and tweaking her nose whilst having lunch together earlier this month.
The removals staff get to work
Despite the ad mogul accepting a police caution for assault, it seems their marriage could be over for good as many of her belongings were packed up and driven away.
Following the incident at Scott's restaurant in London, Nigella, 53, moved out of the couple's £14million Chelsea home and into her Mayfair pad.
Charles Saatchi and Nigella Lawson were dining in the outside area of Scott's seafood restaurant in Mayfair when the photographs were taken
She has since been spotted without her wedding ring and the arrival of the removals team yesterday suggests that the ring won't be returning to her finger any time soon.
Under the direction of Miss Lawson’s sister Horatia, the removals team packed up items including cookbooks, kitchen utensils, clothes and paintings.
Nigella Moves Out
Nigella moved out of the couple's home after the photos were published, which Saatchi claimed was temporary until 'the dust settled'.
He initially tried to explain the throat-grabbing as a ‘playful tiff’ and when further pics emerged of him appearing to twist her nose, he said he was simply trying to clean it for her.
A spokesman for the Nigella refused to comment on the assault or on the state of her marriage.
