Mary Berry has defended her opposition to deep-fat fryers after her comments sparked indignation from MasterChef judge Gregg Wallace.

Berry (81) provoked controversy when she told a magazine: "I don't think any household should have a deep-fat fryer", while also speaking out against children drinking fizzy drinks.

Wallace responded by saying that the Great British Bake Off veteran's opposition to the deep-fat fryer is "an attack on our British way of life".

Now Berry has stuck by her comments, telling the BBC Radio 4 Today programme that deep-fat fryers are dangerous because they cause fires, as well as being detrimental to health.
