Amazing isn't it - I have watched Mary Berry umpteen times on the Bake off and never imagined that she had polio as a child - I thought she had maybe arthritis in her hands. I never imagined that she had known such devastation in the loss of a child. You just never know, do you.
I have just watched this last part of Mary's story as I was out earlier so recorded it and I knew she'd had polio as she told us last week but I didn't know she had lost her son and seeing her at the cemetry brought tears to my eyes.
Isn't she just the most adorable lady... she looks and sounds like she doesn't have an angry bone in her body and sees something good in everything and everyone, especially in the GBBO. Hard to think she's 77-years old.
