Paul Hollywood and Mary Berry

Paul Hollywood and Mary Berry

Paul Hollywood tried to get Mary Berry arrested.

The 'Great British Bake Off' judge confessed he reported his co-star to the police after she vandalised his Aston Martin by scrawling her name on the car with a marker pen.

The 48-year-old TV personality approached law enforcement officers after the pair attended a book signing together In Birmingham.

He said during an interview on The Jonathan Ross Show, which airs tonight (31.10.14): "There was a police officer escorting me out towards my car and I was with security and they said, 'Your car is over there Mr Hollywood... have you noticed what's on your car?' I said, 'What do you mean?' They said, 'someone has written on your car... Mary has written on your car!'

"As I got closer to the car it just said 'Love Mary x' with a sharpie!

"I phoned her up because she was on her way home and I said, 'Mary what are you doing?' She said, 'Oh I thought it was just marvellous.' But the police officer was there and she said, 'Would you like Mary arrested?' and I said, 'Yes I do, I want Mary arrested, criminal damage!'"

Fortunately, Paul saw the funny side to the incident and after joking with the police officer about having Mary taken into custody, he decided to get his own back on the 79-year-old star.

He explained: "I did get her back though because we were at Bake Off a week later and I couldn't get [the pen] off and I said to her, 'Mary, that's still on my car'. I caught her, she went outside with a wet wipe... so I left her there for about half an hour!!"

The silver fox even joked he was pleased Mary had signed the car as it increased its value.

He added: "It was quite funny, it did double the price!"
