While Nigella Lawson may be known for her culinary skills and sultry television appearances – she once had a different career in front of the camera.
Before she became one of Britain's most popular celebrity chefs, Nigella, 60, was once a budding journalist, having worked at the likes of The Spectator and The Sunday Times.
One reporting job saw a then 37-year-old Nigella reporting from outside Kensington Palace and St James' Palace as she spoke about how the late Diana, Princess of Wales changed attitudes towards working women.
Resurfaced footage of the brunette chef shows that her beauty does not fade as she looks like she's barely aged at all.
During the clip, Nigella opted to wear minimal makeup, kept her hair loosely flowing over her shoulders and slipped into a black suit and red blouse.
"Diana initially came by her status and her fame by the traditional route for women, through marriage," she said during the piece-to-camera.
She went on to add: "She later epitomised the modern self-invented women. She tried and succeeded to forge an identity of her own very distinct from her husband’s and pointedly so.
"For many women, this showed that times really had changed and that a wife, even one as traditionally brought up as Diana, was no longer prepared to take on a subservient role or even pretend to do so."
Christmas 2020 saw Nigella break away from tradition and made the decision to not dish out turkey due to the difficult circumstances surrounding the festive period.
Instead, the kitchen goddess opted to serve pork to her family.
"I actually – and I only made the decision a couple of days ago – for the first time ever, I am not going to do a turkey – and I always do. I'm doing pork," she confessed.
She went on to tell the BBC Newscast podcast: "It's not going to be a normal family Christmas, therefore I think I will feel less sad doing something that is just a lovely lunch, that takes in a few Christmas traditions from elsewhere that interest me, but not… make me feel what's missing.
"One of the things I think we've all realised is how we miss having people around our table, and therefore all that worrying over 'is this perfect, should we do this or that', you realise that is actually secondary to the feeling of eating with other people."
