GBBO's Mary, Mel And Sue Are All Getting Their Own TV Shows!
Mary Berry, Mel Giedroyc and Sue Perkins have each been given their own TV show on the BBC, after Paul Hollywood confirms he will be judging the Great British Bake Off on Channel 4.
They pledged their loyalty to the BBC when they decided not to "follow the dough" when the Great British Bake Off moves to Channel 4, and now Mary Berry, Sue Perkins and Mel Giedroyc will all be fronting their own TV shows on the BBC.
Beloved baking judge Mary Berry, 81, is lined up to present TWO shows on the BBC, one of which will focus on cooking and the other will explore the great houses across the UK.

Secrets From Britain's Great Houses is set to air on BBC 1 in 2017 and will see Mary delve into the culinary histories of stately homes and produce her own recipes.
Her second show, Mary Berry Everyday, will air on BBC 2 and will see the baking star share family classics, easy recipes and special occasion dishes.
Sue Perkins, 47, will be presenting a brand new, three-part documentary series for BBC 1. The Ganges with Sue Perkins will be aired in 2017 and will see her explore the Ganges river in India.
Sue's presenting partner and Cambridge University bff Mel Giedroyc, 48, has landed a job presenting the new BBC talent show Let It Shine. The show will see Gary Barlow searching for five young men to take part in a new Take That musical. The format of the show is expected to be something like Andrew Lloyd-Webber's How To Solve A Problem Like Maria and Any Dream Will Do.
Meanwhile, Mary's presenting partner Paul Hollywood has found himself at the centre of a debate of betrayal when he decided to follow the show to Channel 4, accepting a 3 year deal for £1.5million.
However, the presenters have since denied that there are any hard feelings between them and will be coming together once again for two Christmas Special episodes of the Great British Bake Off which will be aired on BBC One on Christmas Day at 4:45pm and Boxing Day at 7pm.
