As a professional baker and judge on the BBC’s ever-popular ‘The Great British Bake-Off’, Mary Berry is loved by millions and her creations are the envy of many amateur bakers. Her sweet persona is perhaps not all that it seems after a recent revelation revealed the grandmother of five’s wild side. During a recent appearance on Channel 4’s ‘Alan Carr Chatty Man’, Mary’s co-hosts Mel Giedroyc and Sue Perkins revealed that the 78 year-old judge has earned herself the nickname of ‘Bez’ on the set of ‘The Great British Bake-Off’, after the notorious partier Bez from happy Mondays, due to her tales of partying in Ibiza.
Perkins revealed, “I was saying to her, ‘I’m going to Ibiza this summer, I’ve never been’. She said to me, ‘Oh I went to Ibiza, darling. I went to somewhere called Pacha’. Mary was 71!”
Ensuring that she got the full Ibiza experience, Mary made sure that she hit the popular club at it’s busiest point. “We thought she went to Pacha for afternoon tea. So we said, ‘Oh, was it afternoon tea?’ and she said, ‘Got there at one’ – we were like, ‘Oh, lunch time’. No, no my friends, one in the morning! Bezza got there at one in the morning, aged 71,” Giedroyc added.
Compared to her usual habitat of quaint British tea rooms and cafés, Mary’s experience in Ibiza was a bit of an eye-opener. She said, “I saw some very interesting things. Took a couple of girlfriends there, some very interesting things happened”.
