Berry nice Prue plea
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.”
