Heston Blumenthal insists there are no hard feelings between him and his soon-to-be ex-wife despite them being four years into their divorce proceedings

Heston Blumenthal is "not fighting" with his wife despite being four years into their divorce proceedings.

The 48-year-old TV chef has revealed that although he's been in the process of divorcing wife Zanna Blumenthal - with whom he has children Jack, Jessie and Joy - for four years, the delay has been caused by their business affairs rather than personal issues.

He explained: "Although I'm four years into a divorce, it's the financial side - a complicated administrative thing. We're not fighting. It's just gone on for a long time because we were looking at the company restructuring and it's all tied into that.

"Dull, boring and complicated stuff."

Heston - who is now dating Suzanne Pirret -also spoke about a photograph in which he is seen cosying up to 'Top Gear' presenter Jeremy Clarkson to raise money for UNICEF.

He told The Times newspaper: "It was at [the broadcaster] Richard Bacon's house. We were talking about the 'selfie for Syria' thing and Bacon says, 'Right, come on, you two, let's do this. I want you spooning!'

"We looked at each other, and at the same time we said, 'We're not frigging spooning'. We took our shirts off - we weren't naked. I went like this and knocked my glasses to one side ... But one article described me as, 'A rather bedraggled looking Heston', like something had actually gone on, Ha! Ha!"
