20 Times We Needed Mary Berry’s Sass In Our London Lives

Our queen of the boozy bakes is leaving GBBO and we’re absolutely devastated. We’ll miss her sass every Wednesday night (and we’re not entirely sure who’s going to be able to tame Hollywood as well). But we thought we’d take a leaf out of Ms. Berry’s book


1. When you’re friend suggests going to the cheese-fest that is Strawberry Moons. And you like it.

6. When you get a Facebook ‘memories’ back to a happier time when you weren’t paying London rent.



7. When you finally decide to go on a date with the guy who uses the aubergine emoji too much on Tinder. And it’s as awful as you anticipated.

8. But you end up going home with him anyway. Because alcohol.



9. And the whole experience leaves you feeling like even more of a broken human being.9.



10. For every time you walk through Camden.

15. When your boss suggests going for drinks at 4pm.

18. When you have a different kind of *experimental* night at G-A-Y.



19. And that one night turns into a whole weekend…
