Paul Hollywood To Front New Baking Show... Without 'Great British Bake Off' Co-Judge, Mary Berry

‘Great British Bake Off’ judge Paul Hollywood is set to leave Mary Berry in the dust (or should that be crumbs?), after going solo with a brand new baking show.


The new series, ‘Paul Hollywood’s City Bakes’ will see him jetting off to locations all over Europe and North America, and checking out what each country has to offer in the way of baking.

Flying all over the world and eating a load of cake along the way? Why would we possibly be jealous of that?

He says: “Food culture can reveal so much about a nation so it's a privilege to be able to delve into the lives of fellow bakers and discover some really amazing international bakes."

Paul’s latest TV venture will air on the Food Network in April.

Don’t think that Mary Berry will be sitting at home twiddling her thumbs though as it was recently announced that she’d be taking ‘Bake Off’ to the US, and hopefully triumphing where Paul Hollywood floundered, by making the show a hit in the States.

This isn’t the first time Paul has gone it alone on TV, though, having previously fronted the BBC baking series ‘Pies And Puds’ in 2013.

He’s also set to pursue his love of cars later this year, following the announcement back in August that he’d be channeling his inner Jeremy Clarkson and fronting a new motoring show on the BBC.

This year’s ‘Bake Off’ finale, which saw Nadiya Hussain crowned winner, brought in a staggering 14.5 million viewers, making it the most-watched TV show of 2015.
