BAFTA’s Must-See Moment: Nigella

Nigella Lawson’s pronunciation of an everyday household object caused many viewers to raise their eyebrows in mock alarm.

The domestic goddess was seen making a brown butter colcannon during her recent TV show Cook, Eat, Repeat.

While adding a splash of milk to her potatoes, she baffled fans with the way she pronounced microwave.

She said: “I still need to add a bit of milk which I’ve warmed in the mee-cro-wah-vay.”

Britain’s Got Talent

Diversity performed a routine inspired by the unparalleled news events of 2020.

It was set to a medley of powerful music and used the viral poem, The Great Realisation.

The performance portrayed the coronavirus pandemic, the death of George Floyd and the Black Lives Matter movement.

The routine received 24,500 complaints.
