Charles Saatchi accused his ex-wife Nigella Lawson and her daughter of being "so off your heads on drugs" that she allowed staff to spend "whatever they liked", a court has heard.
The remark was revealed in an email, sent from Saatchi to his former wife, which was read out as part of legal arguments ahead of the trial of sisters Francesca and Elisabetta Grillo.
They are accused of committing fraud while working as personal assistants to the couple.
