The People - - NEWSNEW FEATURES & - By Emma Branken

GREAT Bri­tish Bake Off’s Mary Berry told for­mer co-star Paul Hol­ly­wood to “look af­ter” Prue Leith, her re­place­ment as a judge.

Mary, 82, called Prue, 77, “bril­liant” but did not give her full ver­dict on Chan­nel 4’s re­vamped se­ries.

Paul, 51 – who re­mained with the show af­ter its move from the BBC – said he is still in touch with Mary.

He told Jonathan Ross on ITV last night: “We do text and email each other.

“She has not di­rectly told me what she thinks of the new show but just said, ‘Prue is bril­liant, look af­ter her’.

“That’s it. She’s a class act. They both are.”

Prue’s fel­low new Bake Off star Noel Field­ing, 44, also ap­peared on Ross’s show and told his host: “I was 549th on the list – a bit of a wild card re­ally.”
