Nigella Lawson is most famous for her incredible ‘Nigella-esque’ love affair with food and on Network Ten’s MasterChef last night, her cameo did not disappoint.

The 58-year-old British chef is not only gorgeous with an incredible personality, but she is also oh-so-relatable – especially while shovelling food into her face.

During her appearance as “guest judge” on the aptly named, ‘Nigella week’, the infamous chef got to taste all of the yummy, yummy food prepared by the amateur chefs.

But it was the WAY she ate the food which cemented how human she is and fans on Twitter were totally here for it.

While Australia is currently fan-girling over Nigella, so are her co-judges, Matt Preston, George Calombaris and Gary Mehigan.

In an interview with the Herald Sun, Matt spoke about how his perception had changed of the TV chef since the first time they met in 2011.

“That’s what takes my breath away now,” Matt told the publication.

“She is a million miles from that cliched cartoonish version that the media likes to peddle of a woman who salaciously licks her fingers while talking dirty to a chocolate mousse cake.”

According to the cravat-wearing judge, he used to think she was ‘shallow’ and was ‘surprised’ she fit in so well with the team.

We personally love her and are so glad that she’s lovely and relatable!
