Speaking with former Bake Off star Sue Perkins on her An Hour or So With podcast, Mary said: 'Paul was a friend of my brother's, and I met him and we sort of did things together.

'But I had another boyfriend in Bath, and he was in London and I used to go home at the weekend.

'Paul was the London one and I had a Bath one, actually there were several in Bath... You keep your options open.'

The pair ended up getting married in 1966 and have enjoyed more than 50 years together.

She then started her baking career in the 1970s, releasing a number of cook books before she became the celebrated judge on the Great British Bake Off in 2010 when the show was on the BBC. 

But she left the popular show when it moved to Channel 4, along with Mel and Sue.

Mary also told Sue on the podcast she was badly behaved at school and would often hide her homework.

She said: 'I was naughty. We had to walk to school and I would be looking in the garden, patting the dog and I would often arrive late.

'Homework was something that was left on the shelf, or didn't actually get home, or if it did I would say "no homework today".'
