Caption competition: what is Paul Hollywood saying to Mary Berry?

The latest Radio Times cover is good enough to eat thanks to The Great British Bake Off, but judges Paul and Mary are hiding something


The new series of The Great British Bake Off is nearly here, and Radio Times is celebrating with a delicious cover shoot with baking’s greatest double act Paul Hollywood and Mary Berry.


But while we loosen our belts in anticipation of more cake, we can’t help wondering just what baking bear Paul has said to poor Mary during the photoshoot to get that reaction. She’s pouring scalding tea all over her hand, for Battenberg’s sake!

Bake Off innuendo is now a saucy phenomenon all of its own, but surely Paul is too much of a pro to muck about in front of a camera whispering about soggy bottoms… Oh wait.

Which is why we want to hear from you. Why is Mary looking like she’s just scoffed a handful of popping candy? What exactly is behind Paul’s devilish blue eyes?
