In an interview with The Spectator, Mr Cameron was asked if he was on Team Nigella: "I am," he said. "I’m a massive fan, I’ve had the great pleasure of meeting her a couple of times and she always strikes me as a very funny and warm person, but I’m also an amateur cook and I like like her recipes."

The prime minister added that he and his nine-year-old daughter Nancy "sometimes watch a bit of Nigella on telly. Not in court, I hasten to add."
