The show will feature 10 contestants competing across eight episodes, serving up traditional British home cooking with a modern twist. 

An excited Mary, 82, said: "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."

The BBC have also said that there is a mystery second judge who will join Mary but their identity is yet to be announced. 

The show will be hosted by Claudia Winkleman who can't wait to work with the legend, Mary Berry. 

She 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."

Mary Berry quit the Great British Bake Off after it was confirmed that the show would be moving to Channel 4.

At the time, Mary said that it had been "a privilege and honour" to be part of "7 years of magic in a tent."

"The Bake Off family – Paul, Mel and Sue have given me so much joy and laughter.

"My decision to stay with the BBC is out of loyalty to them, as they have nurtured me, and the show, that was a unique and brilliant format from day one."
