Nigella Lawson To Return To The BBC With New Cookery Show

It’s been three years since Nigella Lawson graced our TV screens here in Blighty, and the star chef is now set to return to the BBC.

Nigella hasn’t exactly had it easy during her time off, and this will be her first solo TV show since her split from husband Charles Saatchi.

‘Simply Nigella’ is being described as “a new pared-down approach to cooking and eating” that features “food that makes life easier, that makes us feel better, more alive and less stressed.” Amen to that.

Nigella and Charles split in June 2013, and Charles announced their divorce just one month later.

The cook later opened up about her split during an appearance on Michael McIntyre’s chat show, telling the host it was like "having a layer of skin removed”.

"Well, you know, I've had better times, it is spring and I am feeling better and I am very happy to be here,” she explained. "I have been alive for longer than you so I know life has its dips and it can get better and you can't fight it."

In 2014, Charles and Nigella found themselves at the centre of a very public court case, when they were taken to court by two of their former assistants.

During her time away from UK TV screens, Nigella appeared in the US show ‘The Taste’, but sadly, it wasn't exactly a total hit with viewers.

‘Simply Nigella’ will be screened later this year.
