    Prue Leith will earn ‘three times more’ than Mary Berry on C4’s Great British Bake Off reboot

    Restaurateur and cookery writer Prue Leith is expected to serve as Mary Berry’s replacement on Channel 4’s revamped Great British Bake Off – and she could be in for some serious dough! According to reports, the 77-year-old TV cook is rumoured to be joining Paul Hollywood on the beloved baking series for a staggering £200,000 – nearly three times more than Mary Berry earned in the head judge spot on the BBC. Mary, 81, and Paul, 51, are said to have commanded just £70,000 for their roles on the Beeb’s original GBBO series, before Channel 4 acquired the rights to the show as part of a new three-year deal worth £75 million.

The broadcaster, who acquired the rights to the show from Love Productions for £75m in September, have reportedly been struggling to secure new presenters after the comedic duo walked away from the series last year.

Opening up for the first time about her big decision not to end up squished between endless commercials over on Channel 4, Sue admitted that she made the decision “in a heartbeat”. 47-year-old Sue also admitted she was more than a little bit baffled about why GBBO had to move to Channel 4 in the first place.

The Beeb had hoped to reunite Paul Hollywood and Mary Berry for one last time to judge the efforts of 12 assembled celebrities for a charity special – but Love Productions have told them exactly what they can do with that idea. “We would have loved a Bake Off Comic Relief special,” the BBC said in a statement last night.

The photo is actually a still from Paul’s new solo show City Bakes – presumably from a sequence highlighting the dangers of operating a Kenwood Chef without your trousers on. “[City Bakes] sees me travelling to cities all over the world visiting local bakeries and meeting the bakers who work there,” Hollywood wrote on his website recently.
