Great British Bake Off star Mary Berry has reportedly said she's not convinced about appearing in a US version of the show.

The hit BBC2 food show is set to have its own stateside version after the CBS network bought the rights, but judge Mary apparently isn't sure about heading across the pond.

The cookery writer is quoted in The Sun as saying: "I have no idea if I will be asked. I've not thought about it and I'm not going to think about it as it would mean being away a lot."

Paul said he "would be interested" in being involved in the show, but remained coy about whether there were any plans for him to take part.
