Bake Off Mary is still Berry popular.

Mary Berry is still the No1 Great British Bake Off judge when it comes to book sales - without actually being on the show.

More than 400 items related to the former BBC Bake Off favourite have sold on eBay since the start of the new show on Channel 4. Mary's items have sold more than double the combined figure achieved by current judges Paul Hollywood and Prue Leith over the same time period.

Her cook books Baking Bible and My Kitchen Table top the charts, selling nearly two copies every day in the last three months.

Paul and Prue's most popular cook books sold less than one copy per day in the last three months.

Of the top 10 cook books sold on eBay related to the baking show, Mary's publications take the top four places.

Baking Bible is at No1, while Prue's Cookery Bible is in 10th place.

Research by eBay revealed that baking and cooking are now the nation's favourite pastimes for adults, regardless of age.

One in three of the 1500 participants in a survey said cooking was one of their passions and the thing most likely to make them express their individuality and personality.
