There are some things you expect to see when tuning into a Mary Berry cookery programme, like beautiful food and easy-to-follow recipes.

What you might not quite expect is a big serving of outrageous flirting and a huge dollop of smut on the side.

Viewers tuning into Classic Mary Berry on Monday were absolutely loving these surprise ingredients, as the veteran TV cook flirted up a storm with Swedish chef Niklas Esktedt.

"It's a long time since I've had a man on his knees in front of me," Mary said with a twinkle in her eye, as she also quipped that she liked "cooking with a caveman" and knowingly told Niklas that she liked "a little bit of sauce".

The show almost strayed into post-watershed territory when one sequence saw Mary and Niklas head off into the woods together and begin whipping each other with twigs from a Birch tree.

"I think I'm coming to Sweden!" she laughed, giddily.

Crikey, what will she serve up next week?

Classic Mary Berry airs Mondays at 8:30pm on BBC1
