Brian Malarkey, who appears with Nigella Lawson on her hit cooking show The Taste, has told her that her image could suffer if she stays with her millionaire husband, Charles Saatchi.

Malarkey spoke about the images in which 70-year-old Saatchi was seen with his hand around Lawson’s
throat during a fight outside a London eatery three weeks ago – for which he later accepted a police caution, the Mirror reported.
Malarkey said that that he has no idea what future plans Lawson has in the US but asserted that she wouldn’t want this situation to hang over her.
He explained that the pictures are in papers there and everybody is concerned, adding that everyone in the US wants her to be strong and happy and are not huge fans of Saatchi at the moment.
