Any hope for a reconciliation between Nigella Lawson and husband Charles Saatchi seems to have been dashed, as the celebrity chef moves her belongings out of their home - including her cookbooks and the blender.

Lawson moved out after a widely reported incident at a restaurant where Saatchi was photographed grabbing her by the throat, which he dismissed as a "playful tiff".

But yesterday, a removal van sent by Lawson arrived at the £14 million (NZ$27.5m) home to pick up her possessions, including clothes, cooking utensils, recipe books, and swiss ball.

This move was the clearest sign yet that the marriage split may be permanent, the Daily Mail reported.

The removal team was supervised by Lawson's sister, Horatia, and Lawson was not seen. Saatchi turned up only after the process was complete.

Two trips were required to transport all of Lawson's things. They were taken to either a storage facility or a property in southwest London where Lawson appears to be setting up house.

Saatchi, 70, has been cautioned by police for assault for the incident that provoked the split.

He initially suggested she move out after the photos were published to wait for "the dust to settle".

But moving her belongings to a different house would appear to signal the start of a divorce between the millionaire celebrity chef and Saatchi, who is said to have a fortune of up to £100m, the Daily Mail reported.
