Mary Berry is set to be back on our screens people!

Is this not just the best news ever?

Her everyday recipes are inspirational

The very talented 81-year-old chef will focus on food and ingredients she uses the most in the six-episode series.

Patrick Holland, from BBC Two, said: "I am thrilled Mary is returning to BBC Two to share her magic.

"Her everyday recipes are inspirational and delicious and her series will be a real treat for the audience.”

Just a few weeks ago, BBC1 unveiled Mary Berry's Secrets From Britain's Great Houses, in which Berry will tour the UK's stately homes and explores their pasts. She'll be cooking up dishes inspired by her surroundings too.

Neither of the shows have a broadcast date yet but both are expected in the year and we can't wait!

This has all happened after a bitter war began between the BBC and Channel 4 over the future of Great British Bake Off after the makers of the show mounted a new legal bid to air the show in 2017.

The BBC was then forced to hand over the show to Channel 4 earlier this year after they offered a hefty £75 million!

Paul Hollywood controversially decided to switch while his fellow stars Mary, Sue Perkins and Mel Giedroyc stuck with the Beeb.

According to The Mirror, the bosses at the BBC believe they are contractually allowed to block Love Productions, the company which makes the show, from even starting to film until at least 12 months have passed.

Sources claimed the BBC had told the show makers it would not back down over the delay cause.

Yikes, a whole year!

However, yesterday it emerged that Channel 4 were looking at a "legal loophole" which means bosses re-think the deal.

One industry insider told the Sunday People: “The BBC have what is known in the trade as a hold-back clause – it’s something they insist on as standard with all their shows.

“But with Bake Off the situation is slightly different – because even though the BBC has lost the show, they still have to commercial rights for several more years.

“They’re duty bound by their own policy to maximise the commercial return on their own intellectual property rights – which covers merchandise – and keeping Bake Off away from screens is not going to help with that.

“That could well form the basis of a strong legal argument to get the show on air sooner.”

At least this is one thing Mary won't have to worry about anymore!
