Show judge is a new fashion icon

Great British Bake Off judge Mary Berry has become a unlikely trendsetter.

The food writer, 77, wore a silk floral bomber jacket from Zara on last week’s episode that was such a hit with viewers it sold out nationwide within 6 days and sent the Twitterverse crazy.

Mary Berry all trendy tonight in her wee flowery bomber jacket and jeans, go Mary 🙂 #greatbritishbakeoff,Tweeted one member of the public.

Another added: ‘Really FEELING Mary Berry’s 80’s bomber jacket on #GreatBritishBakeoff.’

Demand for the must-have fashion item is now so high that fans of the show are bidding £200 for the £29.99 Rita Ora-inspired item on eBay.

But if this is a little over budget, you can still copy the master baker’s super stylish look by snapping up these similar versions from Topshop, £48, and ASOS, £40.
