Mary Berry won a burping competition whilst filming 'The Great British Bake Off'.

The BBC cooking show has earned plenty of fans due to its wholesome content and family friendly bakes, but the show's stars are less than exemplary behind the scenes, it seems, as they often take part in belching contests.

Presenter Mel Giedroyc revealed how judge Mary, 79, beat her, co-host Sue Perkins and fellow judge Paul Hollywood in one gassy burp-off.

She joked to Woman magazine: "I thought I'd clinched it but then Bezza came out with a long, loud one, and pipped me to the post. She's brilliant."

The fifth series of the hugely popular baking programme is set to start on August 6, moving to BBC One after launching on BBC Two in 2010.

Twelve contestants will be fighting against soggy bottoms and overworked pastry in a bid to impress Mary and her fellow judge Paul Hollywood.

Comedienne Jo Brand also joins the 'Bake Off' family this year, presenting a new spin-off show, 'An Extra Slice', on BBC Two.

The show will air immediately after the main programme and will feature celebrity guests and an interview with that week's eliminated contestant.
