The jury in the trial of two sisters accused of defrauding Nigella Lawson and her former husband Charles Saatchi has been sent out to consider its verdicts.
Francesca Grillo, 35, and her sister Elisabetta, 41, are alleged to have spent £685,000 on credit cards belonging to the TV cook and her art dealer ex-husband.
The Grillo sisters each deny a single count of committing fraud by using a company credit card for personal gain between January 1, 2008, and December 31 last year.
Celebrity cook Nigella Lawson said she was "disappointed but unsurprised" after her two former personal assistants were cleared of fraud.
The revelations that emerged in the fraud trial of two former aides to Nigella Lawson are unlikely to damage the TV chef's meteoric career.
Nigella "let the children smoke weed," an ex-PA has alleged, admitting she had wanted to drop drug claims out of sympathy for her ex-boss.
