Australia's love affair with Nigella Lawson has always been strong.
And there's a good reason why. Her approach to food as pleasure rather than guilt, her array of cookbooks, her pronunciation of microwave (you'll have to look that one up!) and her overall love of food makes her so refreshing.
But in her 62 years, Nigella's life has been quite the mix of triumph and tragedy, especially in the case of her two marriages.
Nigella is also well known for having a "no personal questions" clause when it comes to media interviews. So in the few instances when Nigella has opened up about her life away from the spotlight, it has been powerful.
Watch: Nigella Lawson talks to Mia Freedman. Post continues below.
Before Nigella Lawson was famous for her cooking, the world knew her as the daughter of a famous British politician, Nigel Lawson and as the wife of a famous newspaper columnist, John Diamond.
Making use of her father's connections, Nigella had landed her own restaurant column in The Spectator. It was through her work that Nigella met John, the pair getting married in Venice a few years later in 1992. She and John had two children - Cosima and Bruno - before John contracted throat cancer and endured his illness for four years before his death in 2001.
It was a traumatic time for Nigella, who told Mia Freedman in a No Filter episode that food was a means of escapism for her.
"My first husband couldn't eat. He had oral cancer. I did feel it was quite important to hold on to being able to cook for myself. My children were little then, so I would make two lots of supper, one for them and then one for myself," she explained.
"That's when I started [cooking]. You have to feel like you can take care of yourself. And there are times when one feels unable to muster the enthusiasm of doing so, I think it's an essential act of kindness towards oneself."
