Stop what you're doing, hold your breath... Nigella Lawson is returning to your telly box.

Sure, she's had a pretty ropey few months and been a little bit erm... naughty, but none of this really changes the fact that she's Nigella bloody Lawson. The woman that single-handedly made cookery shows watchable and turned a million teenage boys on (to cooking).

Which is just aces really.

Her new show The Taste starts tonight on Channel 4, marking her official return to UK screens since Nigellissima in 2012 (not that we've been been making notes), and involving Nigella licking a lot of spoons and, no doubt, making all sorts of saucy innuendos.

Here's why we've missed her...

01 She makes us want to be the 'little spoon'
