Charles Saatchi has expressed his delight that his third wife, Nigella Lawson, has become “coveted” following her stints as a television chef.

In a flagrant disregard for the tenth commandment Saatchi declared that “coveting is all everyone does, all the time, every day.”

Of coveting Saatchi added: “It's what drives the world economy, pushes people to make a go of their lives, so that they can afford the executive model of their Ford Mondeo to park next to their neighbour's standard model. And who would want to be married to someone who nobody coveted?"

Saatchi made the remarks in a series of written answers to questions from readers and journalists in his new book, Be The Worst You Can Be: Life's Too Long For Patience & Virtue.

The tome has been serialised by the Daily Mail and includes other choice nuggets such as: “I once thought it best not to bother putting a stop on a wife's stolen credit cards, on the basis that the thieves couldn't possibly spend money as fast as she did."
