Baking Bad: Mary Berry and Paul Hollywood watch Breaking Bad between Bake Off takes
The judges watch the hit US series with Mel and Sue, it has been revealed
Mary Berry and Paul Hollywood may enjoy seeing bakers cook up a storm in the kitchen, but it seems they also love watching Walter White make methamphetamine in his Winnebago.
Mary Berry was shocked by contestant Howard's choice of hemp as an ingredient in the last episode, but the 78-year-old has seen far harder narcotics being made on TV.
The Great British Bake Off judges are fans of the hit US series Breaking Bad and watch the drama during filming breaks, it has been revealed.
Last Tango in Halifax actress Nicola Walker, who is a good friend of Bake Off co-presenter Sue Perkins, said the comedienne takes her Breaking Bad DVDs on set to keep Berry and Hollywood entertained during breaks.
She said: "I know between takes, after they shout 'Bake', all four of them go and watch Breaking Bad. I'm telling you that's what they're doing, going off to watch season two."
The Bake Off foursome will need to catch up on three more seasons though, as the final episode of Breaking Bad season five airs on Monday.
The hit AMC series, which won an Emmy for Best Drama on Sunday, has received critical acclaim and been heralded by some as the greatest TV series ever made.
Breaking Bad stars Bryan Cranston as a high school chemistry teacher who, after being diagnosed with terminal lung cancer, takes up drug dealing in a bid to secure his family's financial future.
The series premiered on US channel AMC in 2008, and was first shown in the UK on Channel 5 before being signed up by Netflix.
