I saw Nigella Lawson's show Nigella Express the other night and I have to ask: is she all right? She seemed to be suffering from several overlapping manias - a need to eat all the time AND talk about it, an overwhelming desire to tell us how busy she is and a compulsion to speak in a manner so excessively, glutinously upbeat that one can only conclude she must be concealing some appalling depression or, perhaps, malfunction like the Stepford Wife who carries on gabbling after she has been stabbed. I shall not, under the circumstances, be trying her recipes.
