Two years after Mary Berry received a CBE from Prince Charles for inspiring the nation to bake, a campaign has been started to make the queen of cakes a Dame.
The Express reports celebrity chef Rachel Allen is behind the campaign to honour 79-year-old Berry with the title.
"It's clear the Bake Off phenomenon has been a huge influence," Allen told the newspaper.
"I love Mary to bits, Britain does too, and she should be made a Dame for her lifelong services to our industry," Allen added. "She's a grandmother, a role model and someone who has made home baking accessible. She is an amazing lady with a wonderful sense of humour."
Berry, who has written over 50 cookery books, has recently risen in the popularity stakes thanks to her appearances on the Great British Bake Off.
A record 13.3million tuned in to watch the final episode of series five - but baking wasn't the only subject fans of the show were interested in.
After the stork-print bomber jacket Berry wore for pastry week sold out at Marks & Spencer, Berry has also been hailed as television's style icon. In fact, a fashion collection could be in the pipeline, along with the damehood.
"I've been thinking about that and I'd like to do a range for somebody like Jaeger or MaxMara," Berry told the Daily Mail. "I would do good, stylish cuts in durable fabrics that hem well and don't crease – that's why I never wear linen, because I like things to look pristine."
Dame Mary Berry the fashion designer? It could happen!
