Mary Berry is to attend this year's Glastonbury Festival.
The 'Great British Bake Off' star may be 81 years old but she's still keen to slip into a pair of wellies and head to the three-day music extravaganza, held near Pilton, Somerset, in late June with her energetic co-star Mel Giedroyc.
Speaking to The Sun newspaper, Mel, 47, said: "I am going to try and take Mary to Glastonbury this year.
"I asked her last year, 'Bez, have you been to Glastonbury?' She replied, 'No dear, of course I haven't', so I said, 'Right, shall we go next year?' and she is up for it."
And, although fans are used to seeing the talented baker create delicious masterpieces, her co-stars recently admitted the show judge is completely different behind closed doors and isn't afraid to knock back the booze off-camera.
Sue Perkins - who presents 'GBBO' alongside Mel - said last year: "She is magnificent. She can knock it back. The rest of us fell by the wayside but she was still dry-eyed, bushy tailed."
However, Mary is adamant she's always been able to handle her drink and is even more careful now she has TV gigs.
When asked if she ever has a few too many drinks, she said recently: "Oh no, I am very careful, as I am nearly always doing something interesting the next day. In my youth, I might have done but, good gracious, not now."
