Nigella Lawson returned to British screens on Monday night, but social media poked fun at her recipes and presenting style.
Nigella Lawson faced ridicule by social media following her long-awaited comeback to television last night, following a rough couple of years that have seen her private life exposed to the world.
In her new BBC2 series ‘Simply Nigella’, whose first episode was broadcast on Monday night (November 2nd), the celebrity cook was accused of ‘playing it safe’ in her recipes and her tried-and-tested presentational methods of gentle, unsubtle innuendo.

The celebrity chef will be answering the call from Vienna on Saturday night.
Nigella Lawson will be announcing the results of the British vote at this year’s Eurovision Song Contest. The TV chef announced the news on Twitter on Monday afternoon after one of her followers asked her whether rumours he had heard about her reading out the results of Britain’s vote were true.
Joseph Beaver asked her ‘Saw some tweets from Eurovision Land. Are you reading the results for the UK next Saturday. Please confirm. Thanks. Joe.’ 55 year old Nigella responded with “Yes it’s true, Oui c'est vrai, Ja Ja, das ist wahr,” getting into the spirit by answering in English, French and German!

The cookery show launched Lawson’s US career in 2013.
US cookery show ‘The Taste’, which featured Nigella Lawson on the judging panel, has been cancelled by network ABC following a huge drop in ratings. The show began its run in 2013 and had so far completed three seasons.
Nigella began as a judge on ‘The Taste’ in 2013.
The series was intended to launch the career of Lawson in the US, after she became a household name in Britain thanks to her BBC programs. When it debuted back in 2013 ‘The Taste’ had pulled in seven million viewers for ABC, but now two years on ratings have fallen to less than three million.

Television presenter and fashion expert Trinny Woodall has reportedly suffered a personal tragedy this week when her ex-husband and father of her daughter fell to his death at a shopping centre in London.
Trinny Woodall's ex-husband, Johnny Elichaoff, was reportedly talked off the same ledge he appears to have fallen to his death from. The incident allegedly occurred two weeks before Elichaoff's death on Wednesday (12th November).
Trinny Woodall photographed at an event at the V&A Museum in July 2014.
Elichaoff was pronounced dead near Whiteley's shopping centre in Bayswater, West London, according to reports in the Mirror. It is believed Elichaoff fell from the roof of a multi-storey car park at the shopping centre. The incident occurred at 9.30am on Wednesday morning, according to a statement from Scotland Yard.
Those who love the judges will probably love the show too.
The UK version of The Taste, which Americans got to see way back in 2012, is the talk of the internet today. And after last night’s premiere, there’s one part of the programme that everyone is in love with – Nigella Lawson. The reviewers have varying opinions on Nigella’s fellow judges Anthony Bourdain and Ludo Lefebvre, but Nigella herself seems to be attracting universal love.
For some, it's the dynamic between all three judges that makes The Taste watchable.
“Nigella Lawson seemed easily the sanest, nicest of the panel,” The Telegraph’s Christopher Howse writes. He continues: “But I’d far rather see Nigella cook on television than sit on a gameshow like this, beauty wedged between two ravening, foul-mouthed beasts.”

She may have admitted to using coke and weed but the only things we’re addicted to are her recipes.
The past few weeks have seen sultry chef starlet Nigella Lawson fall from grace in a big way. Not only was she embroiled in an ugly fraud case against her former assistants, she’s had to relive the summer’s painful memories when her husband Charles Saatchi was pictured gripping her throat, and now has been forced to admit that she has taken drugs on various occasions.
Good Old Nigella!
The festive season is certainly high time for hedonism and over-indulgence: for some this can mean heavy-drinking, retail therapy, binge eating or perhaps the consumption of the less legal kind. However, it’s widely accepted that the best bit of Christmas is the food. Be it an oven-fresh joint stewing in its own juices, mountainous piles of crispy roast potatoes or a Christmas pudding doused in lashings of brandy sauce.

Allegations are flying everywhere, centering on a systematic period of supposed drug use from Nigella.
It has been alleged, by Francesca Grillo – Nigella Lawson’s former aide, currently accused along with her sister of fraudulently spending £685k while under employment– that the TV chef would stay up all night, using cocaine and writing cook books. The startling new accusation comes after weeks of claims that Lawson was a regular user of cocaine and marijuana for various parties.
Nigella's supposed drug use has hit the headlines since the courtcase began
Francesca told the court Nigella was “absent and grumpy”, blaming her mood swings on a lack of sleep.
The Grillo sister's fraud case has unearthed some more of the TV cook's most unsightly demons.
Nigella Lawson has taken another potential blow to her reputation since her former aide Elisabetta Grillo has now claimed in court that the television cook not only allowed her children, Cosima and Thomas, to smoke when they were underage, but also let them smoke cannabis too.
It Has Been Claimed That Nigella Lawson Allowed Her Children To Smoke Weed.
Elisabetta and her sister Francesca stand on trial for fraud after reportedly spending £685,000 on credit cards belonging to Lawson and her former husband, Charles Saatchi. However, the Italian sisters have alleged that they were given free reign of the cards in exchange for not telling Saatchi about his wife's cocaine use.
This week's news was dominated by the tragic deaths of Paul Walker and Nelson Mandela, but there was some good news in the movie world with X-Men Apocalypse set for 2016, and the Amazing Spider-Man 2 trailer hitting the web.

The fraud trial involving Nigella Lawson and Charles Saatchi's former assistants hears from the TV chef for a second day.
Nigella Lawson has admitted that she has taken cocaine, at the Isleworth Crown Court trial of her former assistants, who have denied fraud. The television cook said she had first taken the drug with her late husband John Diamond when he was terminally ill as "it gave [Diamond] some escape."
Nigella Lawson Has Admitted In Court That She Has Used Cocaine.
Lawson, 53, revealed that she took cocaine with Diamond on six occasions after they discovered that his cancer was terminal. She also said she used the class A drug again in 2010 when she felt her ex-husband Charles Saatchi was subjecting her to "intimate terrorism."
