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.
Mary Berry admits she had her “differences” with Paul Hollywood
Speaking about her relationship with Hollywood in the new issue of the Radio Times, Berry said she “would always stand by him.”
“Paul and I had our differences about what was important to us but he is a brilliant bread-maker and I admired him a lot,” she added.
When asked if she was tempted to follow Hollywood and make the move to Channel 4, Berry answered: “No, I wasn’t and anyway, I was never asked to go.
“I avoided being asked,” she continued, “It was suggested what would happen if I did go to Channel 4; what I would get, the advantages. But I didn’t ever have a meeting with them. I’d made up my mind. To me it’s an honour to be on the BBC. I was brought up on it.”
Channel 4 still haven't revealed who will join Hollywood as Berry’s replacement when the show returns later this year. However last week restauranteur and cookery writer Prue Leith was revealed to be top of the list of possible candidates.
