What Happened to Nigella Lawson?
Nigella’s career as a celebrity chef blossomed in 2000 after the premiere of her series Nigella Bites on the U.K.’s Channel 4. She branched out with several other successful programs, including Nigella Express, Nigella Kitchen, Nigellissima and more.

She lost her mother, Vanessa Salmon, her sister Thomasina and her first husband, John Diamond, to cancer.

“A loss doesn’t magically go away. The wound is always there, but it’s not as raw,” Nigella reflected on dealing with the grief in an April 2021 interview with People. “And it is not linear — you go up and down; some years can be harder. You don’t know why it is that you can be plunged into lowness or why some things don’t upset you.”
Nigella married her second husband, Charles Saatchi, in 2003. They divorced a decade later.
