Great British rave up as Mel Giedroyc intends to take Mary Berry to Glastonbury this year


Mel Giedroyc is planning on taking Mary Berry to Glastonbury this year - and if the Great British Bake Off stars descend on Somerset's Worthy Farm, it could possibly turn into the Great British rave up.

The Sun newspaper quotes Mel talking about her intended special guest. "I am going to try and take Mary to Glastonbury this year," she said.

"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."

Mel's frequent collaborator and fellow Bake Off presenter Sue Perkins previously talked about Mary's trip to nightclub Pacha while she was on holiday in Ibiza.

"She will take you clubbing. She has been to Ibiza. She told me she went somewhere called 'Pacha'. We call her Bez on Bake Off. She is an extraordinary woman."

For that reason alone, don't bet against Mary partying to the likes of Adele, Coldplay, Muse, New Order, Madness and Grimes - to name a few of the acts confirmed for Glasto 2016.

Sue also joked about Mary's penchant for tequila shots on Alan Carr: Chatty Man. "She will drink you under the table," she said.

"We had a wrap party at the end of series four and she had never had a tequila slammer before and she took to it like a drunk duck to water. She did not want the salt though. She is a good girl."

Wellies at the ready for Glastonbury, Mary!
