So, how does Mary Berry feel about Paul Hollywood staying with Great British Bake Off?

An decision like no other.

It has left fans divided, kitchens discarded and families destroyed. It has shaped the way of modern thinking (and not in a good way). Our general thoughts on the situation? Yup, this is pretty much it.


We’re, of course, referring to the event of the century- Mary Berry, our beloved angel of cake, has packed up and jumped ship having now officially left the Bake Off Tent.

In an official statement, Mary has confirmed her departure sharing ‘What a privilege and honour it has been to be part of seven years of magic in a tent – The Great British Bake Off’.

Mary then added, ‘The Bake Off family – Paul, Mel and Sue have given me so much joy and laughter. My decision to stay with the BBC is out of loyalty to them, as they have nurtured me, and the show, that was a unique and brilliant format from day one. I am sad for the audience who may not be ready for change, I hope they understand my decision’.

Our reaction? Pretty much.

Things spiraled further into culinary catastrophe, as Paul Hollywood confirmed he had decided to stay put with the show. Some were happy, others felt it was all a bit snakey. We just felt like soggy bottoms about the whole fiasco.

Mary has now spoken herself over all the dramz, and there appears to be no bad blood between Paul and Mary. Because again, Mary is an angel of cake. She doesn’t do drama.

Speaking at the National Reality TV Awards, Mary shared ‘It’s going to be different but I’m sure Paul will carry it on successfully’.

Speaking to The Sun, Mary has also shared ‘Mel and Sue are brilliant and we had a marvellous time on the programme and that’s how it will remain’.

Oh Mary, you lovely little cake angel you.
