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."

Meanwhile, Mary's co-star Paul Hollywood previously revealed he might be up for starring in the US show, which has the working title Bake Off.

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.

Your Horoscopes by Russell Grant

Capricorn:

Your dry humour will be very popular. It's always difficult bringing a large group of people together. Everybody feels like they are walking on eggshells. After cracking a few jokes, you'll put the group at ease. Resist the temptation to make fun of relatives, especially the more sensitive members of the group. Nobody likes feeling singled out. Watching a light hearted comedy can also be a great way to generate a festive atmosphere. This is a time when people can put their differences aside.More
