Great British Bake Off’: Paul Hollywood Has Channel 4 Meeting ‘Without Mary Berry’

Could he be close to agreeing a deal with the broadcaster?

UPDATE: Mary has now confirmed that she has quit the show. See the full story here.

There’s been plenty of talk about whether Paul Hollywood and Mary Berry will continue to judge ‘The Great British Bake Off’ when the show moves to Channel 4, and we may now have been given a hint at Paul’s plans.

The baker has been spotted leaving Channel 4 after a secret meeting, according to reports, which claim that he went to the broadcaster’s HQ alone.

MailOnline reports that Mary wasn’t in attendance as Paul, keen to keep a low profile, snuck into the back entrance at Channel 4 after arriving in a blacked out car.

Mary’s husband Paul Hunnings previously hinted that his wife was undecided on whether to make the channel jump, stating: “She’s very happy with the BBC, put it that way.”

Since then though, it’s been claimed that Paul and Mary have each been offered a three-year deal which would see them make a huge £1 million.

Meanwhile, hosts Mel and Sue have already made their decision, and less than 24 hours after Channel 4’s deal with ‘Bake Off’ creators Love Productions was announced, they issued a statement explaining that they were no longer prepared to front the show.
