Manchester Evening News - - TODAY’S TV -

THERE’S roy­alty on telly tonight, cook­ing up a fes­tive storm. And the Duke and Duchess of Cam­bridge are in the kitchen with her, help­ing out. See what we did there?

Yes, Mary Berry – the Queen of Cakes and pretty much ev­ery­thing else as well – is host­ing this sea­sonal spe­cial, which sees her team­ing up with Wills and Kate to pre­pare the fes­tive food for a spe­cial event, be­ing held to say a big thank you to a load of those gen­er­ous souls who will be work­ing and vol­un­teer­ing over the Christ­mas pe­riod.

The Duke and Duchess have in­vited Mary to ac­com­pany them on vis­its to some of the char­i­ties they sup­port, to meet the peo­ple be­hind these fan­tas­tic causes.

They go to The Pas­sage, the largest cen­tre in London for home­less and in­se­curely housed peo­ple.

In Liver­pool, they visit The Brink – the UK’s first dry bar set up by the Ac­tion on Ad­dic­tion char­ity – to pro­vide a safe space for those suf­fer­ing from ad­dic­tion.

Mary leads Kate in a cake dec­o­rat­ing mas­ter­class at RHS Gar­den Wis­ley, where the Duchess has de­signed a wood­land area called the Back to Na­ture gar­den and sup­ports their work in rais­ing the next gen­er­a­tion of healthy, happy chil­dren.

Through­out the pro­gramme Mary will also be show­ing us some of her favourite recipes to try out at home this Christ­mas.

As the roy­als roll up their sleeves to help prep some de­li­cious-look­ing meringue roulades, they’re also joined by former Bake Off cham­pion Nadiya Hus­sain.
