Six Reasons We Love Mary Berry
Today it’s been announced that Mary Berry will leave The Great British Bake Off (following Sue Perkins and Mel Giedroyc) when it moves to Channel 4. Yep, it’s official. Bake Off is falling apart right in front of our eyes and there’s nothing we can do about it. Love Productions had a great thing and have ruined it. Sad face.
Reasons we all love Mary Berry –
1. We want her as our Grandma.
Imagine the baking you could do together and all the treats you get to eat. I bet there’s no better place to be on a Sunday than Mary’s house for a roast dinner.
2. She wears the best jackets.
I want them all. I’m pretty sure she’s single handedly responsible for the uprise of the pattered jacket trend.
3. She’s the good cop to Paul Hollywoods bad cop.
Dropped your cake on the floor? Don’t worry. Scoop it back up (carpet fluff and all) and stick it back together with icing. Mary will just call it ‘informal’.
4. She’s partial to a tipple.
A boozy bake is the way to Mary’s Heart and the next round of Bake Off.
5. ‘Accidental’ innuendos.
She seems so innocent but who knows if they’re accidental or not. We all love it when Mary mentions soggy bottoms.
6. She does the right thing.
Bake Off won’t be the same but by staying with the BBC, who have according to her statement today ‘nurtured me, and the show’, is the right thing to do.
Let’s hope we see more of her in her own programme on the BBC.
