The 83-year-old has made more than a million pounds for the second year in a row.

She has been rewarded with her own series, Mary Berry Everyday and Mary Berry’s Country House Secrets. 

In 2016, she said: ‘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.’

The kitchen queen has proved to have a strong head for business. 

Accounts show Mary Berry Limited made a profit of £1.5million in 2018, adding to the £1.2million she made the year before. 

And her merchandising company, Mary Berry Merchandising Limited, made a £288,390 profit, compared to £253,592 in 2017.
