Countryfile returned with a Mary Berry special this evening as the TV chef revealed her personal connection to the UK countryside. However, the Bake Off star left BBC presenter Matt Baker speechless when she made a surprising admission on her childhood as she discussed growing up on a farm. 

“I’ve always loved animals,” Mary began. “I had pigs and the little runt that was left out, I used to whip away.

“And I had been known to take it to bed with me.”

“You’re kidding,” a surprised Matt remarked. 

“I used to wrap it in a towel and snatch it just at dark and they’re such lovely snuggly little pink things,” she added.

“Everyone says pigs smell, not little piglets they’re gorgeous.”

Countryfile viewers took to Twitter to share their comments on her surprising admission. 

One said: “I love piglets – I agree Mary! They don’t smell @BBCCountryfile #countryfile.”

“#Countryfile Mary took a pig to bed with her [OMG],” another shared. 

Someone else joked: “I bet she has a good recipe for pigs in blankets.”

While other fans were overjoyed to see Mary on the BBC show.

One said: “I am LOVING Mary Berry on #Countryfile. I do hope they invite her back again.”

“Mary Berry is always in such sunny form and is always smiling. Be like Mary #Countryfile,” another said.

Elsewhere, Mary returned to her childhood home with Matt as she opened up on her relationship with her parents. 

“The people who live here bought [the home] from when my mother died.”

“So she lived here up until she died?” Matt clarified and Mary replied: “She lived here and she looked after herself.”

“I can remember coming here before I was married and I parked the car and dad would be at the double doors here,” Mary continued. 

“And he’d always have a gin and tonic, ‘There you are my darling lovely to see you’ and I look at the door and think it would be quite nice if he walked out.”

“When you see yourself do you see your mum or your dad?” Matt asked.

“It depends whether I’m in the house or garden. I was very lucky to have strong parents who taught me so much,” Mary replied. 

Countryfile continues Sunday on BBC One at 7pm.
