Nigella Lawson, 60, responded to claims that she “fake gorges” the food she makes for the camera in a bid to stay trim. The chef found the accusation pretty funny, warning the Twitter user behind it that her crew would find it even funnier because they know the truth.
After an appearance on Sunday Brunch, Nigella whipped up a delicious host of meals that left viewers’ mouths watering.
But some were concentrating on how she manages to keep herself in shape when she’s constantly surrounded by food.
“How on earth does @Nigella_Lawson stay slim?” one gobsmacked fan questioned.
“So far she’s made crab mac’n cheese & chocolate cookies. It’s not fair!”

And it didn’t take long before the humour exploded on social media, causing Nigella to take to her own official Twitter account to address the heat.
Responding to one user’s question as to whether or not she actually says “mee-krow-wah-vay,” she admitted that it’s how she pronounces it when by herself.
“Well, I do say it like that, but not because I think that’s how it’s actually pronounced,” she said matter-of-factly.
“Can this be the end of it now?” she pleaded.
