TV cook Nigella Lawson has admitted taking cocaine, but denies having a drug problem or being an addict.

She said she had first taken the drug with her late husband John Diamond when he was terminally ill.

The celebrity chef was giving evidence at Isleworth Crown Court in the trial of her former personal assistants, Francesca and Elisabetta Grillo, who are accused of fraud.
