BBC2 Unveils Plans For ‘Nigella Lawson Eats A Banana’

TV food fans were celebrating last night after the BBC confirmed plans for a new series of Nigella Lawson Eats a Banana.

Nigella Lawson was Chancellor of the Exchequer from 1983 to 1989

The series of six half-hour shows will feature Nigella Lawson sitting in front of a camera, eating a banana.

A BBC spokesman said: "There will be no script, no music and no credits.

"It will just be a solid half-hour of Nigella Lawson working her way through a fairly large banana."

The Corporation has already commissioned a raft of shows featuring the popular chef.

Next spring sees the premiere of Nigella Lawson Rides a Horse, while the centre-piece of BBC2's summer schedule will be Nigella Lawson Washes a Car.

This year's prime-time Christmas Eve slot on BBC1 will be filled by the hour-long special Nigella Lawson Dresses Up as an Elf.
