Nigella Lawson to make TV comeback with new BBC Two series

The buxom 57-year-old chef will return to the small screen in new BBC Two show Nigella: At My Table.

Nigella Lawson is "excited" to be making her TV comeback after two years away.

The buxom 57-year-old chef, known for her double entendres and suggestive style of cooking, will return to the small screen in new BBC Two show Nigella: At My Table.

The six-part series will see Nigella share the dishes her family love the most - a prospect the brunette is looking forward to.

"I'm excited to be making this new series and to share with viewers many new recipes alongside favourites that have evolved as I've cooked them over the years," she said in a press release.

"At My Table continues my celebration of home cooking, infusing everyday with pleasure and flavour. What matters most in life is the connections we have with each other and food is always at the heart of this."

The programme will be the first time Nigella has returned to television since BBC Two series Simply Nigella ended in 2015.

Her new show was revealed as part of BBC factual controller Alison Kirkham's announcement of more than 35 hours of new content on the network.

Other programmes include an interview with Prince Harry about the 20th anniversary of his mother Princess Diana's death and a makeover show starring Claudia Winkleman.

The programme, aptly entitled The Makeover Show, will see a style team of the country's best hairdressers, make-up artists and stylists help Claudia in giving three people a complete style overhaul.

In a statement, Strictly Come Dancing presenter Claudia said: "I'm thrilled to be taking part. The production team are brilliant and I can't wait to start. Obviously I'd want to give everyone a fringe, some black clothes and white lipstick so thankfully it's extremely lucky I'm not in charge. I'll just be there to help."
