Mary Berry reunites with Mel and Sue for Christmas show

Former Bake Off presenters Mary Berry, Mel Giedroyc and Sue Perkins will be reunited on BBC One for a one-off programme to air this Christmas.

The documentary will focus on a group of volunteers in South Wales who have opened a community centre. With the local school and post office closing, the centre has become a lifeline for children and pensioners

The broadcaster said: ‘It’s the beating heart of the community, but both the centre – and the amazing volunteers keeping it afloat – are deserving of some serious festive cheer.’

In the show TV cook Mary, along with a gang of local helpers, will create a spectacular traditional Christmas dinner, while presenters Mel and Sue will rally the troops to stage a surprise party, as well as give the centre a face-lift.

David Brindley, BBC head of commissioning, popular factual and factual entertainment, said: “What could be a more joyful Christmas treat than reuniting the brilliant Mary, Mel and Sue around such a heartwarming, important event?

“I can’t wait to see the reaction of the community they’re surprising, as our trio shine a light on those who have gone the extra mile to make life a little easier for their neighbours.”
