Nigella Lawson will be joining the new season of My Kitchen Rules when the cooking show returns to Channel Seven later this year.

‘Going to restaurants can be a treat, but for me, the true story of food is told through the cooking we do at home,’ Nigella said.

‘So, to have the chance to champion home cooks and be given the intimate privilege of being invited into people’s homes to eat their food fills me with gratitude and excitement in equal measure!’

She added: ‘I’m so looking forward to working with Manu too. Although he’s a chef and I’m a home cook, the fact is we both just want to eat good food. I feel I’ve got a lot to learn from him, but just know we’ll have a lot of fun in the process. I can’t wait!’

Manu also shared his excitement for the new season.

‘I’m very excited to be sitting back at the head of the MKR table and even more thrilled to have the lovely Nigella Lawson at my side,’ he said.

Manu continued: ‘As MKR judges, we make the perfect team with our years of experience in professional and home kitchens respectively.’

‘And as lovers of delicious food and a fabulous dinner party, I can promise you we’re also going to have a lot of fun. Bring it on!’

Manu previously worked together with Pete Evans as judges on My Kitchen Rules for 10 years, before Pete was sacked from the network in May 2020.

The pair were often the subject of rumours they didn’t like each other, with a source revealing in 2017 that Manu thought Evans was ‘stranger than strange’. 

Evans has been involved in a string of controversies since being sacked by Seven for his extreme views.

He previously claimed COVID-19 was a ‘f**king hoax’ and that the pandemic ‘doesn’t compare to what is happening in the world on a large scale’. 

Among his false claims about the pandemic, Pete has previously declared he’s immune to coronavirus, and blamed the health crisis on 5G technology.

He also endorsed fellow conspiracy theorist David Icke, a Holocaust denier who was denied entry to Australia last year after protests from the Jewish community.

He was also dropped by 15 sponsors and companies in the space of 48 hours in November 2020.
