Mary gives her verdict on boybands

Mary Berry has revealed that she’s a fan of Union J.

The Great British Bake Off judge didn’t know who the lads were when she met them recently but they soon won her over by telling her about their mothers’ cooking.

I had no idea who they were!’ says Mary, 78.

[But] they were delightful, talking about their mums’ dinners.’

It’s not just Union J that Mary hadn’t heard of – she admits that the words One Direction don’t ring any bells either.

I have no idea [who they are],’ a perplexed Mary admits.
