The new show will follow Nigella in her kitchen, as she walks viewers through a wide range of mouth-watering new recipes which utilise her favourite ingredients.

The nation's much-loved chef will create a range of delicious dishes such as an indulgent Crab Mac’n’Cheese for a main course and a luxurious Chocolate Peanut Butter Cake for desert.

Nigella will explore the importance and place of food in our lives and its influence on social connections.

She will also reveal how and where she finds her inspiration - from a collection of vintage cookbooks to discussions with fans on social media.

"The story of my life"

The chef shared news of her new show with her 2.6 million Twitter followers, exclaiming "I have news!".

The chef explained the title of her new show is “More than just a mantra, cook, eat, repeat is the story of my life".

The show will also feature a one-hour Christmas special, which will be part of the BBC's festive TV schedule.

For the special, Nigella will experiment with food from near and far to create a unique spread for the Christmas table.

What has been the response?

Fans of the chef are delighted at the new show, with one user responding saying simply "JOY".

While another opened up about the positive impact Nigella's shows have and praised the chef for improving their mental health.

They wrote "Your programmes are a source of calm and solace and I seek them out on stressful days. I know many others do too. I’d be willing to bet that they decrease cortisol in the watcher. By making more you are improving mental health as well as creativity in kitchens far and wide."

When is it on TV?

There's no official news about when the series will be on our screens.

However it's due to get six episodes and a Christmas special, so we can speculate that it should be on TV at some point this winter.
