Following the extraordinary send-off ratings for ‘The Great British Bake Off’ on the BBC on Wednesday night, the big question on every fan’s lips - who can possibly replace Mary Berry at the judging table?

Well, one of the names on the shortlist might come as a bit of a surprise, with the Sun quoting a source that claims ‘Dynasty’ actress Linda Evans is one of the big names in the ring.

Linda Evans being considered for Mary Berry replacement on 'Bake Off', apparently 

Yes, you read that right. Linda, famed for her stunning blonde bob, her palatial shoulder-pads and mud-tussles as Krystle Carrington when faced with nemesis Alexis Colby, is apparently one of those being considered for the prestigious post.

The Sun’s source claims that Linda - who has previously guested on the UK’s ‘Loose Women’ - is a known big baking fan and “open to the idea”.

It might not be so far-fetched after all. Mary Berry, who paradoxically delighted fans with her refusal to move with the show to Channel 4, unlike Paul Hollywood, will be a huge gap to fill - it would take someone of Linda’s prestige, and wardrobe, to even try.

14 million viewers tuned in on Wednesday evening to farewell Mel and Sue, Mary Berry and salute Candice Brown as this year’s champion. While Paul Hollywood prepares for his new home over on Channel 4, Mary has revealed only that she might move from baking to gardening next.
