Celebrity chef / fine lady Nigella Lawson dropped into Waterstones Deansgate last night to sign copies of her new book, Simply Nigella.
I arrived an hour early and there was already a queue, which became so long that we were required to snake the line along the contours of the bookshelves in order to fit everyone into the store. Due to time restrictions, we could get our photos taken but we couldn't pose for the camera like in most signings.
Busiest in-store signing I've seen in Waterstones. Nigella seemed nice. Just as stunning up close. Not doing too bad for 55.
