The two ‘Great British Bake Off’ judges didn't always see eye to eye.
Mary Berry has revealed she often had her “differences” with fellow ‘Great British Bake Off’ judge Paul Hollywood.
Last year Hollywood opted to follow the series to Channel 4 when it moved from the BBC, while Berry decided to quit. However the 81-year-old also admitted she “avoided being asked” to make the movie to Channel 4, because she’d already made up her mind to stick with the BBC.

‘The Great British Bake Off’ may have departed the BBC leaving millions mourning in its wake, but at least one person is already looking to the future, as Mary Berry has announced details of a new programme on the network combining British stately homes and food history.
Nearly two months ago, the nation was left surprised and saddened when the BBC lost the huge ratings winner to Channel 4 after producers Love Productions accepted a £75 million bid – promptly causing co-head judge Berry and co-hosts Mel Giedroyc and Sue Perkins to say they wouldn’t sign up for the new series.

The Greatest British TV Saga Continues
And so the biggest saga on British TV continues: baking Queen Mary Berry could set up a rival show with funny girls Mel and Sue in direct competition to Channel 4 as the Great British Bake Off leaves the BBC.
Mary Berry could set up a BBC rival to Channel 4's Bake Off
The new cookery programme could feature three out of the four Bake Off stars after Paul Hollywood was the only person from the original format to jump ship and head over to BBC’s newest rival.

Danny Dyer won the soap award for best actor, but then things started to get weird.
Well, it was an eventful TV Choice Awards on Monday night (September 8, 2014) and not just because Danny Dyer was given an award for acting. It was after he was announced as Best Soap Actor that things started to get...weird.
Danny Dyer [center] won Best Soap Actor
First of all, Dyer took to the stage to collect his prize and seemed confused over whether the award he was handed by comedian and host David Mitchell was for him or not.

Iain was eliminated from 'The Great British Bake Off' for his non-existent baked Alaska, but was it Diana Beard's fault?
Sabotage! A baked Alaska sabotage! Not the cries of this writer, but the masses on Twitter during Wednesday night's instalment of the 'Great British Bake-Off'. Iain - the Northern Irish one with the massive orange beard - was kicked off the show after failing to produce anything but an aluminium wheelie bin in the showstopper challenge. But was it really his fault?

The construction engineer was falling behind on the task anyway after failing to make a half decent sponge for his base, but things got worse when fellow contestant Diana Beard - the older woman who wears Nike Air Max trainers - apparently removed his pudding from the freezer. After finding his now defrosted Alaska settled on the side, Iain screeched "No! why would you take someone's ice cream OUT of the freezer?!" below sloping off towards that massive mansion outside the bake off marquee. On his return, Iain realised that his pudding would not suffice and subsequently slid it off the tray and into the bin - left only to face the ire of Paul Hollywood and Mary Berry.

The hugely popular show returns for fifth series with twelve new contestants
The twelve contestants have been announced for the upcoming series of ‘The Great British Bake-Off’. The most notable aspect of the announcement is that the new series will feature both the oldest and the youngest contestants yet: Diana from Shropshire, aged 69, will face off against 17 year old Martha from Berkshire.

The 'GBBO' runner-up believed her representation was skewed, leading to online hatred.
Kimberley Wilson came pretty close to winning the BBC's The Great British Bake Off after appearing amongst the final three bakers fighting it out for the crown. In the end Kim's squishy picnic pie, her ham-fisted pretzel and her lack-lustre wedding cake saw competitor Frances Quinn steam ahead to claim the title of Britain's best amateur baker.
Kimberley Wilson [Centre] Has Claimed That Hers Was Not An Accurate Portrayal On The 'Bake Off.'
Psychologist Kimberley and fellow rival Ruby Tandoh were cast off by judges Paul Hollywood and Mary Berry who preferred Frances' intricate creations. Throughout the series, it seemed as though Kimberley was being set up to win: every perfect bake would emerge from the oven easily within the timeframe and would be placed with a glowing smile in front of the adoring judges.
[Spoiler Alert] Last night's 'GBBO' winner came as a surprise to many.
It really must be said: last night's final of the Great British Bake Off came as a disappointment, not necessarily because of the eventual winner, but for the absolutely naff standard of baking that the competition ended on. For a nation revelling in the current trendiness of baking and the professional standards we've come to expect even from charity bake sales, we were let down by poorly constructed bakes, and the triumphant showstopper challenge was simply shameful.
Frances Quinn Was Picked By Paul & Mary As Britain's Best Amateur Baker.
The first, signature round was in fact successful for Ruby and Frances but a train wreck for the customarily consistent Kimberley as the trio were set the challenge of creating a layered savoury pie for a picnic. In the usual GBBO, heavy-handed, foreboding way, our attention was drawn to Ruby and Frances' decision to pre-roast their fillings to avoid the sinful soggy bottom (drink!) against Kimberley's audacious choice to throw it all in at the same time.
Rumours of a 'Bake Off' romance are dismissed by both parties.
He may have had her buns in his mouth but there is reportedly nothing going on between the Great British Bake Off judge Paul Hollywood and the bakery contest's favourite to win, Ruby Tandoh. Gossip began to bubble up after some perceived flirting between the student and the chef nicknamed 'The Silverback,' who has just separated from his wife.
Has 'The Silverback' Picked Himself A Mate?
Now that newly-separated Paul Hollywood's back on the meat market, rumours are abound as to any potential Bake Off romances that may have been sparked between the judge and this season's candidates. In an interview with UCL's student newspaper The Tab, Ruby laughed off rumours that there was something going on between her and the 47 year-old judge.
We're at the halfway point and Ep.6 saw emotions run high as the bakers had to 'raise' their game and 'prove' themselves.
Episode 6 of The Great British Bake Off was always going to be a battle of the blokes. The remaining ladies, Ruby, Francis, Christine, Kimberley and Beca, were looking far too strong to be likely bets for the firing line this week. Howard and Glenn were the two men left now the show has reached its halfway point and faced the judges' scrutiny after some decidedly dodgy bakes in weeks gone by.
Paul Seemed To Be Particularly Mean This Week.
Howard and Glenn were both bakers who started the competition promisingly: Glenn gained a reputation for giant creations whilst Howard's experimentation and precision received Mary and Paul's compliments. However, as the show's oven heats up and the skilled cooks are separated from the scruffy, both men have been clinging on by their teeth as they fall out of their depth.
'The Great British Bake Off' judge disapproves of Ramsay's approach, says modern television is "ghastly" and describes Jamie Oliver as "bumptious."
Mary Berry, the Queen of cakes and nationally loved judge of BBC's The Great British Bake Off, has publically voiced her distaste towards not only fellow TV presenter and chef Gordon Ramsey, but much of modern television. Shows such as Ramsay's The F Word, Strictly Come Dancing and I'm A Celebrity... leave a nasty taste for the 78 year-old who condemns modern television entertainment as "violent, cruel and noisy."
Mary Berry Slammed Both Reality TV Shows And Other Cooking Programmes.
Speaking to the Radio Times to promote a new series of the baking contest, as reported by The Daily Mail, Berry disparages celebrity chef Ramsay with his notoriously filthy language and characteristically crude style. "I hate Gordon Ramsay's programmes: I don't know if he's been told it makes good television," states the comparatively soft-spoken baker who prefers to let candidates down gently even when it's clear they've made a huge baking blunder.
