A personal assistant accused of defrauding Nigella Lawson and Charles Saatchi has claimed she saw evidence of regular drug use by the chef.
The court has heard that Elisabetta Grillo did not want allegations of Nigella Lawson's drug use included in her original defence case statement because she had a "remnant of sympathy" for her former boss.

– defence case statement read to court
The defendant will assert that the prosecution witness Nigella Lawson habitually indulged in the use of Class A and Class B drugs in addition to the abuse of prescription drugs throughout the time that the defendant was employed in the household.
This evidence is of substantial importance as it explains why Ms Lawson initially consented, or appeared to consent, to the expenditure as the defendants were intimately connected to her private life and were aware of the drug use which she wanted to keep from her then-husband Charles Saatchi.
Broadcaster Paul Gambaccini and a second man have been re-bailed until March after their arrests as part of the national investigation prompted by abuse claims against Jimmy Savile.
