Mary Berry serves up some seasonal treats from her family home in Surrey


She's one of TV's best-loved celeb chefs thanks to her judging stint on hit show the Great British Bake Off – and now, in an exclusive interview, baking doyenne Mary Berry reveals how she celebrates Christmas with her nearest and dearest.

"I like it to be traditional," admits the 77-year-old, who invited HELLO! into her beautiful 19th century, six-bedroom Surrey home. She will spend the holidays with her husband Paul and their extended family - grown up children Tom, 45, and Annabel, 41, their partners, and five grandchildren.

"It's a wonderful excuse to get everyone together and all under the same roof," says the stylish TV star – who has plenty of well-worn Christmas traditions.

"I'm never going to have a silver Christmas tree – and the children want it just the same. The same hats as last year, the same cheesy snacks with drinks before dinner. It does get a bit crazy at times so we'll sit and play Scrabble or go for a walk."
