The six-part series, set to debut in October, will focus on Nigella's favourite comfort food, hero ingredients and "the rhythms and rituals of her kitchen", as well as delving into where she gets her inspiration for her recipes, from vintage cookbooks to social media.

Explaining the meaning behind the new show's title, Nigella said: "More than just a mantra, cook, eat, repeat is the story of my life".

There's more good news for Nigella fans since she has also signed up for a one-hour Christmas special! The culinary guru has pledged to "warm up the winter evenings and add sparkle to the seasonal special".
