Just six weeks after their quickie divorce, Nigella Lawson’s ex-husband Charles Saatchi appears to be dating again.
Saatchi was spotted twice last week with What Not To Wear style guru Trinny Woodall, 49.
The pair met for dinner at popular restaurant Scott’s in central London, the same venue where controversial images were taken of him placing his hands around his ex-wife’s neck three months ago.
The pair joked together at their terrace table, as Saatchi lit cigarettes and drank white wine during their date on Monday night. The pair met again at the same restaurant on Friday.
“He usually looks pretty thunderous,” an onlooker told Sunday People “But he seemed to be rather laid-back and enjoying himself. Trinny is a really beautiful woman.
“If they went out twice in a week they obviously get on well.”
The pair reportedly began dating after Saatchi’s friends insisted the 70-year-old stop moping around and start meeting other women.
“Charles used to be a real man about town and they want him to get back to his old ways,” a source said.
“He can be terribly charming and charismatic, but his confidence has taken such a bashing from the fallout over the divorce.”
While Saatchi apparently refused to take part in five different dates set up for him by friends, he did agree to see Trinny who broke up from her Italian businessman boyfriend Stefano Bonfiglio last Christmas.
Nigella, 53, who has remained silent on the strangling incident and their divorce, is currently in Los Angeles filming the second series of US TV cooking competition The Taste.
