Chelsea neighbours shocked by ‘naked chef’ Nigella
Nigella Lawson and Charles Saatchi’s new neighbours get a view right through to the bathroom
Television chef Nigella Lawson and her art collector husband Charles Saatchi have spent a fortune transforming a former warehouse in Chelsea into their new home – but they have apparently overlooked one crucial matter during the lengthy renovation works.
According to Daily Mail gossip columnist Richard Kay, the couple have shunned the bourgeois notion of frosted glass or even a door to the luxurious new bathroom that opens onto an upper-floor 'loggia'. As a result, their neighbours are able to see the couple wandering naked in and out of the bathroom.
"It isn't a case of deliberately looking in," one peeper told the Mail, "but there is a view into the bathroom and anyone glancing in the direction of the loggia from nearby can glimpse what’s going on."
Nigella, herself a former newspaper journalist, apparently "hooted with laughter" when told by Kay of her neighbours' sightings. "I had no idea we were overlooked," she said. "Obviously, I will investigate."
It looks like a bathroom door is the only option - unless Nigella resorts to wearing the black burkini she famously used to hide her figure on Bondi Beach earlier this year.
