and does anyone else think she seems a bit drunk? Kind of slurring her words?<concerned>

TheCountessofFitzdotterel Mon 02-Nov-15 20:47:09

Yes! I was looking for a thread to post something very similar. Drugged, rather than drunk.

NigellasGuest Mon 02-Nov-15 20:48:47

and her nose has got bigger!
is that because her face has got smaller?

I thought the same, but wonder if it might be the incredibly clunky script? I mean, slipping words like 'lambent' and all those strings of adjectives in can't be easy.

I'm watching. Where was it filmed? In her house, like the early series, or on a set?

She got a bit arsey on the one show last week. She strikes me as a bit fragile. Are those Italian girlfriends of hers still about?

Did anyone else think she was at risk of losing a tooth eating that stir-fry?! and a bit tight with the 6 prawns

Helenluvsrob Mon 02-Nov-15 20:53:47

No cos she irritated the f**k out of me after 5 mins!

MikeSpilligan Mon 02-Nov-15 20:56:01

It always baffles me how she can feed a table of 12 with 6 measly lamb ribs and 2 tiny plates of salad.

Arsey on the One Show?
What happened?

NigellasGuest Mon 02-Nov-15 20:58:07

what's with all the panning shots of the skyline??

Yes, yes, we know you are in London

Anyone switching to Hugh on BBC1?

Oh yes agree, how she feeds a crowd on a head of cauli etc.
Hate feckin pomegranates.
Love her house, if it's her house.

Agree with who ever said about her nose being bigger. Probably cos the rest of her face has been stretched back. Kids here cannot believe she's older than me. And she is. Dagnammit.

And the daftness of the strings of daft adjectives. Bonkers.

Yes I was wondering about the speech too... most peculiar.
She sounded a bit better for the latter 2 dishes.
Anyone for heft??
Never really thought about the sound made by scraping avocado until this evening.

NiceAcorns Mon 02-Nov-15 21:03:23

I thought she sounded a bit pissed (not necessarily a bad thing) a bit I mobile of forehead.

However, food looked good

MikeSpilligan Mon 02-Nov-15 21:03:44

God yes pomegranate. Unnecessary.

NiceAcorns Mon 02-Nov-15 21:04:05


NiceAcorns Mon 02-Nov-15 21:04:45

I like pomegranate. Especially if someone else does the fiddly stuff

PinkGeranium Mon 02-Nov-15 21:08:10

She kept going on about the nigella seeds.

TheCountessofFitzdotterel Mon 02-Nov-15 21:09:23

Maybe she's had too much botox round her mouth and can't help slurring? She certainly looks good.

The80sweregreat Mon 02-Nov-15 21:09:32

I dont know, Alex jones said something and she didnt get the joke. She just seemed a bit fed up.

Anyone switching to Hugh on BBC1?

Not after all the hair wanking stories!

stargirl1701 Mon 02-Nov-15 21:14:01


TheCountessofFitzdotterel Mon 02-Nov-15 21:14:27

I have been watching Hugh for 14 minutes now and there hasn't been a single bit of hair wanking yet.

DriverSurpriseMe Mon 02-Nov-15 22:29:08

I couldn't help but think about the hair wanking too grin

As for Nigella, I noticed the slurring too. Either she needs a less convoluted script, or...
