Great British Bake Off 2017: Mary Berry set to front RIVAL BBC cooking show
This comes as the latest series of the baking show appears to be doing well on Channel 4 after it moved from the BBC for a whopping £75 million.
Mary, 82, has now revealed her plans to stay on with the Beeb, explaining: “The BBC said to me: ‘You’re not going’. We are doing something new together.
“But it’s not out there, we will be doing something soon,” the chef teased to The Sun.
The newspaper also reports that the show will be called Classic Mary Berry and will give viewers an insight into Mary’s own home as well as featuring her finest recipes.
The former Bake Off star is also in line to front Britain’s Best Cook with Strictly Come Dancing host Claudia Winkleman.
She’s clearly keeping herself busy as Mary will also present a look around stately homes in a new show titled Secrets From Britain’s Great Houses.
Express.co.uk has contacted the BBC for comment.
The well-loved star recently opened up on The Great British Bake Off’s move to Channel 4, explaining her regret to a Headline book party.
“It is sad that the show moved,” Mary explained. “I wish it had stayed [on the BBC].”
Last night’s instalment of GBBO was certainly a controversial one, as fan-favourite Flo was sent home, prompting an outpouring of rage from viewers.
As well as this, current host Noel Fielding was branded “irresponsible” after hiding in a fridge for a gag.
