Watch: Nigella Lawson debuts sexy new body on show

TV chef Nigella Lawson is looking as scrumptious as one of her delectable desserts at the moment, debuting her slimmed-down figure on her new US reality cooking show, The Taste.

After losing 18kg since August 2011, the 53-year-old domestic goddess appears sexy as hell even when eating meals cooked by the show's contestants. Gotta love Nigella!

Nigella took to her blog just a few days before the show aired claiming she insisted that her tummy not be photoshopped in the show's promotional photos.

"Although it was very thrilling to think of being up on a billboard in LA and around the States, I was very strict and English and told them they weren't allowed to airbrush my tummy out," Nigella wrote.

"Wise? Hmmm. But that tum is the truth and is come by honestly, as my granny would have said."

Did the television publicity team adhere to her request? Decide for yourself:

Nigella looks incredible no matter what, but we'd have to say the promo shots are rather smoothed out — like most TV publicity shots.

Nigella's new show is pretty much The Voice with food, as contestants undergo "blind" tastings and are mentored by Nigella and other foodie judges including No Reservations chef Anthony Bourdain.

Let's hope it airs here in Australia — Nigella's Nigellissima has been one of summer TV's highlights on the ABC.

There have been much more extreme Photoshop jobs on celebs, here are the worst:
