Mary Berry insists she isn't nervous about 'The Great British Bake Off' moving to BBC One this year and thinks the show will retain its high standards

Mary Berry isn't nervous about 'The Great British Bake Off' moving to BBC One.

The hit reality competition - which drew some nine million viewers last year - will switch from BBC Two for its fifth series later this year and judge Mary, 78, insists there is no pressure to change the show ahead of its big move.

She told BANG Showbiz exclusively: "I'm not at all nervous about it. The programme is going to be just the same, and we'll put just as much into it. The bakers won't change, we won't change - the standards will be the same. It'll all be great fun."

Meanwhile, series four runner-up Kimberley Wilson - who lost out to Frances Quinn in the final last year - says the contestants on the show really did get along and admits people are surprised by the harmony amongst them.

She revealed: "When people stop us they always ask, 'Is it real? Do you really get on?' We absolutely do.

"We're trying to organise reunions, but people are a bit busy at the moment, but we do want to get together. You're in this incredibly intense environment and you feel bonds really quickly."
