For fans of “The Great British Baking Show” upset that beloved judge Mary Berry won’t be part of the program when it next airs on Channel 4 (instead of BBC), relief is in sight.

The BBC on Tuesday named the 82-year-old baking queen a judge in its new series “Britain’s Best Cook.” The series will see 10 contestants battle it out to prove they’re No. 1 when it comes to classic British fare.

“I am never more at home than when I have my judging hat on,” Berry said.

Further details on the series to come.
