Nigella Lawson told a court "If you want to put me on trial, put me on trial" today as she repeatedly denied being a "regular cocaine user".
The celebrity cook, who has admitted using cocaine and cannabis in the past, denied stashing the class A drug in a box containing her late husband's wedding rings as she gave evidence in the fraud trial of two of her former personal assistants.
"I promise you... regular cocaine users do not look like this," she said.
"They are scrawny and look unhealthy.
"If you think I'm going to sabotage my health and leave my children as orphans, you are very wrong."
