As we finally say goodbye to that year, we’ve been travelling up and down the UK to discover why this year’s nominees mattered so much to the people who watched them.


Nigella’s Cook, Eat, Repeat became one of the most talked-about shows last year – and it wasn’t just because of the recipes. But ahead of next month’s Virgin Media BAFTAs, what did the nation really think?

Nigella’s Cook, Eat, Repeat – Mee-cro-wah-vay

Domestic goddess Nigella Lawson is busy in her kitchen making a divine-sounding brown butter colcannon. While talking to the camera, she moves onto the potato-mashing step, where we get a peek inside the pan.


While adding a splash of milk, Nigella turns to the camera and baffles fans with some unusual pronunciation, explaining, “I’m aiming for a solid mash at this stage, but I still need to add a bit of milk which I’ve warmed in the mee-cro-wah-vay”.


The camera pans up and Nigella gives a knowing smile as she continues with her recipe.
