Nigella Lawson reveals she has to tell US TV not to airbrush stomach

Nigella Lawson reveals how she has to tell US television networks not to airbrush her ‘sticking-out stomach’ as celebrity chef hits out at ‘hatred of fat’

Some stars might be pleased to see an airbrush let loose on their pictures – but not Nigella Lawson.

The celebrity chef has criticised US TV networks that try to make her look slimmer, revealing she had to tell them not to edit out her ‘sticking-out stomach’.

The 58-year-old, pictured, joins a growing number of stars to hit out at airbrushing after British actress Jameela Jamil called for it to be banned.
