Angelina Jolie Lined Up To Play Nigella Lawson In New Biopic

Nigella Lawson's life story is about to get the big screen treatment - and Angelina Jolie has been lined up to play the TV chef, according to reports.

The movie, which is due for release next year - comes after a turbulent year for Nigella that saw her split from her husband Charles Saatchi and face a grilling in court where she admitted to taking cocaine.

Meanwhile, the cook's two former aides, Elisabetta and Francesca Grillo, will give their first TV interview on 'This Morning' later today (Tuesday).

They will talk for the first time about last year's £685,000 fraud trial that saw them acquitted of charges made against them by Charles Saatchi and Nigella Lawson.
