Asked if he was pleased about the verdict in the fraud trial of Nigella Lawson's former assistants, David Cameron has told journalists: "I've probably said enough about this, so I'll take the 5th."
The judge in the trial told jurors to ignore his comments from an interview with the Spectator magazine in which he confirmed he was on "Team Nigella" - the name of a campaign started by the TV cook's fans.
Judge Robin Johnson said: "It is of regret when people in public office comment about a person who is involved in a trial which is in progress."
Celebrity cook Nigella Lawson said she was "disappointed but unsurprised" after her two former personal assistants were cleared of fraud.
The revelations that emerged in the fraud trial of two former aides to Nigella Lawson are unlikely to damage the TV chef's meteoric career.
Nigella "let the children smoke weed," an ex-PA has alleged, admitting she had wanted to drop drug claims out of sympathy for her ex-boss.
