The 82 year-old is best known for judging The Great British Bake Off from 2010 to 2016.

Last year, the hit cooking show made headlines after Channel 4 bought the programme from the BBC for a massive £75 million.

While Paul Hollywood chose to stick with the show, his fellow hosts and judges Sue Perkins, Mel Giedroyc and Mary Berry made the decision to leave the when GBBO left the BBC.

Talking to the Radio Times about moving over to Channel 5: “Well, I avoided being asked.

“It was suggested what would happen if I did go to Channel 4; what I would get, the advantages.

“But I didn’t ever have a meeting with them. I’d made up my mind. To me it’s an honour to be on the BBC. I was brought up on it.”

Reportedly, Mary was offered a whopping £7 million to move over with the show.

But we’re sure she’s not short on dough (pun intended.)

The mum-of-three is reportedly worth an incredible £15 million.

Through her work on TV and in publishing, the national treasure has racked herself up a decent salary.

According to The Telegraph, Paul Hollywood is said to have been making an incredible £400,000 per series of the hit baking show.

Assuming Mary’s pay isn’t far off, it’s no surprise the food writer is doing so well for herself.

GBBO aside, the television star has had her own set of successful cooking shows such a Mary Berry Cooks, Mary Berry’s Absolute Favourites as well as her most recent show, Mary Berry Everyday.

When it comes to why the TV personality didn’t move over to Channel 4, she explained: “It was the BBC’s programme, it grew there.

“So I decided to stay with the BBC, with Mel and Sue.”

Earlier this year, TV’s highest paid female presenters were revealed, with the likes of Holly Willoughby, Davina McCall and Emma Willis making appearances in some very surprising results.
