TV chef Nigella Lawson has been caught in photos of an architect after she signed up to build a new conservatory in her £4.8 million London mansion.

Ms Lawson, 62, plans to knock down a leaky old greenhouse at her stables, converted from old coach houses, in a conservation area in Chelsea.

But when designers took photos to send to Westminster Council for approval of the plans, they saw the BBC star standing in the soon-to-be-demolished extension with her hands on her hips.

The British celebrity chef moved into the Chelsea property in 2013 after divorcing her then-husband, millionaire art dealer Charles Saatchi.

She shares the house, which reportedly has a wine cellar and movie theater, with her two children, Cosima and Bruno.

Nigella recently submitted an application to the council to improve the house after being told that the conservatory – installed in 1989 – was coming to the end of its life.

Photos show rainwater leaking between rafters into the famous kitchen where she cooks many of her popular recipes.

The conservatory currently houses her green Aga, cooking utensils and shelves of crockery and pots and pans.

She wanted to replace the rickety construction with a new all-glass design by glass architecture firm Trombe.

Planning documents say: ‘The property was previously extended with a one-story rear conservatory.

‘This timber frame structure has reached the end of its useful life and the applicant would like permission to replace it with a simple contemporary structure with the same footprint.

“The applicant wants to obtain planning permission for the reconstruction of the conservatory, to replace an existing flawed structure, achieve greater energy efficiency and improve the relationship between home and garden.”

Although small, the house has been made much larger by the addition of the wood and glass conservatory at the rear.

Eighteen neighbors have been consulted about the plans and no objections have been received.

Nigella received full planning permission; although she was warned to work between certain hours and not to use the roof of the new structure as a terrace.
