Mary Berry, 85, was born on March 24, 1935 in Bath. She has had a lengthy career in the food industry but her career first started when her cooking skills were noticed by her domestic science teacher at high school. Aged just 22, Mary started to work at the Dutch Dairy Bureau, while also enrolling for evening courses to further her education. 

The company now stock its condiments in stores like Tesco, Harrods and Fortnum & Mason across multiple countries.

Perhaps best known for role as a judge and host on The Great British Bake Off, Mary co-hosted alongside Paul Hollywood for 6 years.

It is reported that she earned around £200,000 per year for this job. In addition, she also judges the variations of the show including The Junior Bake Off, Comic Relief Bake Off and Sports Relief Bake Off.

Mary left The Great British Bake Off in 2016 after the show relocated to Channel 4. 

Since then, Berry has gone on to star in many solo programmes including Mary Berry Cooks, Mary Berry Everyday and Mary Berry’s Absolute Favourites where she cooks up family favourites from her own kitchen. 

In her personal life, Mary married Paul John March Hunnings in 1966 who sold antique books. 

The author lives with her husband Paul Hunnings, in their grade-listed property in Henley. 

The property comes with a tennis court, conservatory, indoor pool, gym and double garage and is thought to have cost £2.6million. 

From one British icon to another, Paul Hollywood is a chef and television presenter known for being a judge alongside Mary on The Great British Bake Off.

According to Spears Magazine, his net worth is a whopping £9million.

He began his cooking career at his father’s bakery when he was just a teenager and then went on to become head baker at a number of hotels around the country.

He then landed a role alongside Mary on The Great British Bake Off but also has a number of other incomes which no doubt has added to his staggering fortune. 

Alongside the baking show, Paul also has been a guest speaker at food festivals such as the Cumbrian Food Festival, the BBC Good Food Show and The Cake and Bake show. 

He added £1million to his net worth in just one year in 2014 thanks to his BBC contract, book deals, live tours and sales of his own merchandise.
