It looks like Mary Berry’s replacement on GBBO has been confirmed

How do we feel about this then?

I have a slight obsession with Mary Berry.

I don’t even really watch GBBO but I do have a major obsession with cake and we share the same birthday. Side note, her wardrobe is fabulous and she just seems like a real lady.

Anyway, enough of me harping on about my fangirling, according to reports, Mary’s replacement on the Great British Bake Off has apparently been decided.

Yep, it’s really happening, The Sun reports that Prue Leith, a restaurateur, writer and food campaigner, will join Paul Hollywood for presenting duties when the show moves to Channel 4.

A source spoke to the newspaper about the rumour:

“Following in Mary’s footsteps is a big challenge. But the producers are confident that Prue has all the attributes”.

Prue has some TV experience having judged too BBC’s The Great British Menu and in addition to that, she’s headed up a Michelin starred eatery and is the founder of Leith’s School of Food and Wine.
