Mary Berry is always dishing out criticism of bakers’ soggy bottoms on ‘The Great British Bake Off’, but now it seems the TV cook has committed the ultimate baking crime herself.


Viewers of her new show ‘Foolproof Cooking’ have accused her of serving up an undercooked Beef Wellington.

Viewers said Mary's Beef Wellington was raw

Many fans remarked that the base of the pastry dish still looked raw, resulting in the dreaded ‘soggy bottom’, and took to Twitter to point out her error.

Mary’s new six-part series sees her sharing her cookery know-how with a selection of her foolproof recipes for both amateur and more accomplished cooks.

She will also be seen back in screen in a new series of celebrity ‘Bake Off’ in aid of ‘Sport Relief’ tonight (27 January).

The first episode will see the Prime Minister’s wife Samantha Cameron, England goalkeeper David James, ‘EastEnders’ actress Maddy Hill and comic Jason Manford serving up culinary delights in the 'Bake Off' tent, to be judged by Mary and co-star Paul Hollywood.

Other stars taking part in the series include singer Will Young, Spice Girl Geri Halliwell, Girls Aloud’s Kimberley Walsh and newscaster John Simpson.

‘The Great Sport Relief Bake Off’ airs tonight at 8.30pm on BBC One, while Mary’s ‘Foolproof Cooking’ continues on Monday at 8.30pm on BBC Two.
