Mary Berry CBE is one of the most loved celebrity chefs in the country. In her early 80s, she’s been on our screens showing us how to make the most delicious recipes and sweet treats for over 50 years!
She started her career way back in the swinging 60s as the cookery editor for Ideal Home and Housewife magazines.
By the time it was the groovy 70s she had her own TV show with good friend Judith Chalmers. They were an instant hit with housewives all over the country as they showed them how to make nutritious, hearty meals for the whole family.
In the 80s, Mary was the ultimate working mother, bringing up three children while writing numerous cookbooks and recording cookery shows for the BBC from her home in Buckinghamshire.
Now, Mary is probably most famous for being one of the original judges on The Great British Bake Off, where she put contestants through their paces for nine years before leaving the show when it made its controversial move from the BBC to Channel Four.
It doesn’t seem like Mary will be hanging her apron up anytime soon. She still regularly makes appearances on TV and radio chat shows as well as entertaining the nation at various food shows around the country.
