An American version of The Great British Bake Off, starring Mary Berry, is mooted to be on the cards. 

According to a report in The Sun, American broadcaster ABC wants Mary Berry to host an American version of the hit baking series.  

“Bosses at ABC believe Mary is the secret ingredient that the first US version of the show was missing,” a US insider said to The Sun. "They’re about to start over here and there has even been talk about using the same marquee for filming.”

Paul Hollywood appeared in a US version of the show called The American Baking Competition, which ran for one season.
