Mary Berry is set to judge a brand new cooking show on BBC One.
The former Great British Bake Off judge has landed the opportunity to work on a new series, called Britain’s Best Cook.
The show will be presented by Strictly Come Dancing host Claudia Winkleman, and the show will test the skills of passionate home cooks.
10 contestants will compete across eight episodes, serving meals that reflect both the modern and classic dishes of British home cooking.

Speaking about the show, Mary told the BBC, “I am never more at home than when I have my judging hat on.”
“This series is going to encourage proper home cooking, which I have always championed and I cannot wait to start. Claudia, for me, is the icing on the cake.”
Mary will be joined by a second judge, but their identity has not yet been revealed.
Claudia Winkleman said, “I am over the moon to be part of this show. Am slightly obsessed with Mary so will follow her around with my own moussaka for most of the filming. Apologies in advance.”
Moving on: Mary left GBBO last year after the programme moved from the BBC to Channel 4 | BBC
Mary, 82, left The Great British Bake Off last year in a shock move, after it was announced that the series would move from the BBC to Channel 4.
GBBO presenters Mel and Sue also left the programme, but Mary’s fellow judge Paul Hollywood stayed with the show.
Paul Hollywood will appear in the new series later this year alongside Sandi Toksvig, Noel Fielding and Prue Leith.
