Tonight is the Celebrity Best Home Cook final, with Mary from the Great British Bake Off judging the dishes alongside chef Angela Hartnett and produce expert Chris Bavin. The trio will be scrutinising the meals produced by finalists Tom Wilson, Rachel Johnson and Ed Balls. Fans will be excited to see the show on our screens once again and none more so than little Prince Louis, the two-year-old son of Prince William and Kate, Duchess of Cambridge.
Louis is reportedly Mary Berry’s biggest fan, clapping and cheering when he sees her on TV.
He also uses her cookbooks to show Kate when he wants to eat
According to an insider, Louis likes to “check on” cookbooks of the TV star in their home.
The source said last year: “Prince Louis likes nothing better than to check on Mary Berry cookbooks.
“He loves the pictures, points out all the things he wants to eat, with The Very Chocolate Cake, Plum Crumble seeming to be hot favourites, and fruit scones being a must.
“Whenever he sees Mary on the television, he whoops and claps his hands.”
They added that William finds his son’s obsession with the baking expert “hilarious” and Mary is “delighted” that the Cambridges are all fans of her cooking.
These quotes, which appeared in The Sun last year, were not the first time Louis’ love for Mary has been discussed publicly.
“So he would definitely recognise you if he saw you today.”
The show saw Mary join Kate and William on four visits to different UK charities.
It ended with a party hosted by the couple and a menu designed by Mary for charity staff working to support others of Christmas.
After filming, Mary described Kate on chat show, Lorraine, as a “normal mum” who is “just like you and I”.
The Bake Off legend said the Duke and Duchess of Cambridge are a “really lovely” couple who “love each other” and want to do “all they can” for the UK.
One of the ways Kate impressed Mary was how she stays up late before her children’s birthdays to bake them cakes.
On the show, it was also revealed how William used to try and impress Kate at university with his cooking.
The Christmas documentary also exposed that Kate used to be a terrible waitress at university.
The Celebrity Best Home Cook final is on tonight at 9pm on BBC One.
The finalists are Rachel Johnson, journalist and Boris Johnson’s sister, Ed Balls, former Labour Shadow Chancellor of the Exchequer, and Tom Read Wilson, an actor known as playing the receptionist on Celebs Go Dating.
