Bake Off Sue: Mary Berry fed me Sher­gar

Midweek Sport - - NEWS -

GREAT Bri­tish Bake Off judge Mary Berry fed host Sue Perkins a HORSE MEAT steak when they first met.

The pair worked to­gether on a show called The Su­per­siz­ers in 2009, which Perkins pre­sented with Giles Coren, when Mary took part in an episode set in the 1950s.

Mary, 81, in­tro­duced Sue to post-war ra­tions, in­clud­ing canned salmon and horse meat.

Perkins, 46, said: “Mary made me a horse meat and mar­garine steak. It was lit­er­ally a Sher­gar steak. It wasn’t ten­derised.

“It was the thick hip of a horse.

“She was out there carv­ing it for what seemed like two days.

“It had a burned, gristly side and a bit of hair on it!”

Mary has also been re­vealed as a fan of The Jeremy Kyle Show, where guests come on to ar­gue with each other over on­go­ing fam­ily is­sues.

Perkins’s Bake Off co-host Mel Giedroyc, 48, ex­plained: “We in­tro­duced Mary to Jeremy Kyle and she rather en­joyed it.

“Mary does love Jezza now. I think she thinks Jeremy Kyle the show is a drama though, rather than real life.”
