MasterChef fans mock Nigella Lawson’s ‘gross’ table manners

‘Watching Nigella Lawson eat is really gross’ MasterChef fans mock the guest judge’s ‘awkward’ table manners… accusing the British star of ‘shovelling’ food into her mouth

While MasterChef is supposed to be about spotting the rising star among amateur cooks, it seems that fans are more preoccupied with watching the judges eat.

Sunday night’s episode of the cookery competition kicked off ‘Nigella week’ – which will see the cookbook author guest starring alongside George Calombaris, Gary Mehigan and Matt Preston. 

But viewers took to Twitter to mock how Nigella Lawson, 58, was tasting the dishes during the evening’s intense cook-off.

Social media users critiqued the British domestic goddess’ table manners – with the commentary ranging from praise to confusion and disgust.

One said: ‘The way Nigella pushes food into her mouth is so relatable because I, too, often cannot eat as much in one mouthful as I would like.’

‘Omg I love seeing Nigella shovel the food into her mouth with her palm… makes me feel like it’s normal when I do it,’ another added.

Someone else simply called the mother-of-two an ‘awkward eater’. 

While a TV fan mused: ‘Nigella eats like someone who’s been starved 66 days and handed a 40cm diameter chocolate cake on a platter with only 12 seconds to finish it,’ before adding: ‘It’s arousing.’

And one wrote: ‘Omg watching Nigella eat is really gross. It’s embarrassing.’

During the episode, Nigella could be seen licking her fingers and talking with her mouth full – but she admitted that she is a ‘messy eater at the best of times’. 

Meanwhile, earlier this month MasterChef viewers slammed the show, claiming that it is ‘literally just a compilation of the judges eating’.

During an episode which was described as a ‘blind taste test’, the judges aimed to give honest opinions on the dishes rather than critiquing the contestants.

But TV fans ended up thinking that half the show was made up of close-ups of Matt, George and Gary eating.

‘The judges are eating like it’s feeding time at the zoo,’ one fumed on Twitter.  

‘We watch MasterChef to see food critiqued. If I wanted to watch people eat mute I’d sit miserably in a food court,’ a disgruntled viewer added.
