How old is Mary Berry and what is her net worth? – The Sun

MARY Berry has become a national treasure thanks to her great work on TV and her excellent cookbooks.

And she is once again back on our screens with her series Mary Berry Everyday.

Who is Mary Berry?

Mary Berry is a Cordon Bleu-trained chef who became the cookery editor of Housewife magazine in the 60s. She then went on to edit Ideal Home magazine.

She first stepped in front of the camera on 70s show Afternoon Plus with Judith Chalmers.

Through the 80s she went on to film a TV series for the BBC from her own as well as writing more cookbooks.

How old is she?

Mary Berry is 86 years of age.

She was born in the year 1935, in Somerset, England.

Her upbringing was difficult at times, and she contracted polio when she was only 13 years old.

The sickness caused her to have to spend months in the hospital, and she was left with a slightly twisted spine and thinner left hand.

What is Mary Berry's net worth?

Mary Berry is reportedly worth £15million, which she has garnered through her work on TV and cookbooks over the course of 60 years.

She earned £70,000 per series of the Great British Bake Off.

The veteran cook has also published more than 60 best-selling recipe books.

Who is Mary's husband Paul Hunnings?

Paul Hunnings is 89 years of age and he previously worked for sherry brand Harvey's of Bristol as well as selling antique books, but he is now retired.

Mary married Paul Hunnings in 1966 and the couple previously spoke about Paul's proposal and how she only accepted his offer of marriage after the third attempt.

Mary eventually said the magic word after Paul said to her: "I said 'I’m getting on in age, so either it’s yes or no.'"

The TV chef said: "I do remember the first proposal and I think you were drunk", and Paul's witty response was: "Well I might have been," he said. "It’s a big step. You don’t go into something like that without a bit of fortification."

Do Mary and Paul have children?

Mary had three children with husband Paul and they have a daughter named Annabel, 50, and two sons called Thomas, 52, and William, the latter died in 1989 in a car accident when he was just 19.

Commenting on her son's death, she told the Daily Mail: "William is still a huge part of our lives. I have his photo in the kitchen where I can look at it all the time.

"When I think of William, it’s with joy and happiness. I miss him immeasurably, but I know how fortunate I was to have him even for that short time. I still have two other children. How lucky am I?"
