TV star Nigella likes to indulge

Nigella Lawson has revealed her secret to looking young – and it’s not what you’d expect.

The TV cook, 52, reckons that feasting on fatty foods has helped retain her good looks.

‘I’m a great believer in fat,’ says Nigella.

‘My view is that you moisturise from the inside.

‘I like any doughnut that’s going. I like anything in batter or that is deep fried.’

Nigella thinks it’s really important to cook wholesome meals with proper ingredients – but doesn’t believe in always sticking to the rules.

‘Your skin and your mind and body are happy if you have food which is real and not processed bits of cardboard,’ she told visitors at the Cheltenham Literature Festival.

‘There is always room for a bit of junk food from time to time.’
