Nigella Lawson breaks Twitter silence for first time since divorce
Celebrity chef tweeted picture of a cake inspired by the Great British Bake Off
The TV Chef Nigella Lawson has broken her Twitter silence for the first time since her high profile split from Charles Saatchi.
The return of the cookery show the Great British Bake Off apparently inspired Nigella to return to Twitter. She tweeted: “Yum: settling down to The Great British Bake Off with a slice of this blackcurrant Victoria sponge #GBBO”
After pictures emerged of her former husband Charles Saatchi holding her by the neck, Nigella had maintained silence to her Twitter followers, which she broke only yesterday.
The tweet has been taken as a sign Nigella is returning to her old self, as following the tweet she posted messages concerning a salad she had for lunch yesterday, and engaged with a number of her followers on the social media site. She had maintained total silence since June 28, choosing not to tweet or comment publically at all.
Her actions are in contrast to her former husband. In the wake of their split Charles Saatchi has made a number of high profile statements to the press, attempting to downplay the initially photographed ‘strangling’ incident as nothing more than a ‘playful tiff’.
The couple ended their 10-year marriage in a 70 second hearing at the High Court on July 31. Neither attended the court hearing, and the marriage was dissolved on grounds of Charles’ ‘unreasonable behaviour’.
