As the dust settles on the shock move of The Great British Bake Off (GBBO) to Channel 4, Mary Berry announces her new BBC bakery show plans.
Dry your eyes, Bake Off fans, filming has already begun on Berry’s new cooking show, Everyday, which will air on BBC2.
Everyday will see Berry judge dishes “that can be whipped up and thrown together quickly”, as well as family favourites.
The announcement comes less than two weeks after BBC1 unveiled Mary Berry’s Secrets From Britain’s Great Houses, in which Berry will tour the UK’s stately homes exploring their pasts and cooking up dishes inspired by her surroundings.
Neither show has a broadcast date as yet, but both are expected to hit our screens in the new year.
In the past Berry has fronted two shows on BBC2, Mary Berry’s Absolute Favourites and Mary Berry’s Foolproof Cooking, both of which were made by Sidney Street, which will also produce Everyday.
BBC 2 channel editor Patrick Holland said in a statement he was thrilled Berry was returning: “Her everyday recipes are inspirational and delicious and her series will be a real treat for the audience.”
Fellow ex-Bake Off presenters Mel Giedroyc and Sue Perkins are up to host a Saturday Night BBC1 show called Let’s Sing and Dance for Comic Relief ahead of next year’s Red Nose Day.
Prior to that, both sets of presenters and judges will appear in Christmas specials of The Great British Bake Off, which have already been recorded.
Berry also recently said she would be reunited again with Giedroyc and Perkins, suggesting they could host a gardening programme together.
