The quintessential baking judge has become a national treasure during her six years on ‘Bake Off’, and has even impressed producers overseas, who now want to put her in a starring position in a US version of the show.
Mary’s fellow judge Paul Hollywood previously appeared on a US version of the show, with the less-than-captivating title ‘The American Baking Competition’.
‘American Baking Competition’ ran for just one series in 2013, though ABC producers are reportedly hoping that the inclusion of Mary Berry could give the rumoured new show a boost.
“They’re about to start over here and there has even been talk about using the same marquee for filming. It doesn’t look like Paul is involved this time.”
Meanwhile, there are now just six bakers remaining in the UK version of ‘Bake Off’, with this year’s winner being announced in just three week’s time.
