Nigella Lawson came later. And an extensive refurbishment.
Catering companies often parked outside their home. Saatchi was regularly seen wandering around Waitrose buying himself packets of pre-cut fruit.
One day Saatchi decided his neighbours were taking too long to refurbish and tried to dismantle their scaffolding himself.
The Saatchis put the flat on the market for £ 36m. It sold to Candy and Candy for £ 21m.
Then started to create chaos for their new neighbours with their own extensive building project.
So what did their love nest look like?
