Paul Hollywood and Mary Berry together on the Great British Bake Off is like the Ant and Dec of baking – we just can’t fathom seeing one without the other.

So imagine our shock over our cup of tea when we found out that Paul was leaving Mezza Bez! Well, not really per se. He’s still going to be on the Bake Off, don’t worry, but the 49-year-old has also signed up for to be in his very own baking show.

The show will see him travelling around the world and sampling cakes and pastries in Paul Hollywood City Bakes. Sounds pretty good, not gonna lie – we’re just going to have to get used to not seeing Mez Bez and her brightly coloured floral jackets by his side!

The series will see Paul explore everything from family recipes, hotel delicacies and local faves, as well as adding his own Hollywood twist to each dish. We’re salivating over the sound of this…

‘Food culture can reveal so much about a nation so it’s a privilege to be able to delve into the lives of fellow bakes and discover something really amazing international bakes.’

We’re definitely be tuning in – oven gloves at the ready!

And in case you’re still worried about him being with his work wife Mary Berry on everyone’s favourite show, he’s used the wise words of Tom Jones to set things straight….

More shows about food and Mr. Hollywood on our telly screen? Yeah, we’re all on board with that.
