DO­MES­TIC god­dess Nigella Law­son ar­rives at MasterChef HQ this week and I couldn’t be hap­pier.

Her ab­so­lute aban­don when it comes to eat­ing makes me both joy­ous and hun­gry; while her ob­vi­ous fas­ci­na­tion with this com­pe­ti­tion is em­bar­rass­ingly val­i­dat­ing. She likes us, guys, she re­ally likes us. And the way the kitchen erupts when she ar­rives on Sun­day night, the feel­ing is mu­tual.

Con­tes­tants then fo­cus on her mys­tery box chal­lenge, us­ing ingredient­s she nom­i­nates, in­clud­ing con­densed milk, chicken livers, an­chovies, fresh gin­ger and cher­ries. The win­ner moves to the gantry, to watch on as the rest tackle the next chal­lenge, which must fea­ture an el­e­ment of snap, crackle or pop. When chilli crab is served up, Matt Pre­ston re­veals a new use for his fancy cra­vats – pulling it out from un­der his shirt as a sassy bib.

Nigella re­turns on Mon­day night to set a choco­late chal­lenge. Tues­day, she’s back for the in­ven­tion test and im­mu­nity pin cook. Wed­nes­day the group heads off site for a real restau­rant ex­pe­ri­ence; and Thurs­day in­volves taste-test­ing her tri­fle.
