We can't wait!

By Chanelle Mansour
She's been dubbed as the queen of the kitchen, and Nigella Lawson has officially been confirmed for the new season of Australia's favourite cooking show, My Kitchen Rules.
Joining returning host and judge Manu Feildel, Nigella will travel around Australia to dine in the homes of passionate home cooks who are competing for the title of MKR Champion.
Speaking on the new gig, Nigella said: "Going to restaurants can be a treat, but for me, the true story of food is told through the cooking we do at home.

"So, to have the chance to champion home cooks and be given the intimate privilege of being invited into people's homes to eat their food fills me with gratitude and excitement in equal measure!"
The international cooking star added that she is "so looking forward" to working alongside Manu as co-host for the series.
"Although he's a chef and I'm a home cook, the fact is we both just want to eat good food," she said in a statement shared by the Seven Network.
"I feel I've got a lot to learn from him, but just know we'll have a lot of fun in the process. I can't wait!"

Manu echoed a similar sentiment, saying he was "very excited" and "thrilled" to be sitting back at the head of the MKR table with Nigella at his side.
"As MKR judges, we make the perfect team with our years of experience in professional and home kitchens respectively," he said.
"And as lovers of delicious food and a fabulous dinner party, I can promise you we're also going to have a lot of fun. Bring it on!"
Also joining MKR this season is award-winning food journalist and TV personality Matt Preston, while celebrity chefs Colin Fassnidge and Curtis Stone return as guest judges.
The new season of MKR will feature real people from all over the country, cooking real food in their own homes for the superstar judges and their fellow contestants.
My Kitchen Rules will premiere later this year on Channel 7 and 7plus.
