Los Angeles - Katie Holmes could be set to replace Nigella Lawson on The Taste.

The former Dawson's Creek actress is reportedly being eyed by producers on the culinary contest ever since the chef's place on the third series of the show was thrown into jeopardy when she was refused permission to board a flight to Los Angeles after confessing in court last year that she has taken drugs.

A source said: "Producers of The Taste are looking to replace Nigella. They're keen to hear more about how Katie's planning to reinvent herself as a Martha Stewart-style culinary guru.

"It's very early days and it all depends on what happens with Nigella, but Katie is very excited and would jump at the job if it came available."

The source added to Britain's Grazia magazine: "A meeting is planned for when she is next in LA. Katie wants a new career, loves food and is in talks about writing a cookbook. And obviously she's great on camera."
