Mary Berry Reveals She Recently Spent 10 Days In Hospital After Breaking Her Hip In A Fall
Former Great British Bake Off judge Dame Mary Berry has revealed she recently underwent surgery on her hip, following a fall at her home.Dame Mary told the Daily Mail’s Weekend magazine that she was rushed to hospital in an ambulance back in August, after tripping over some bricks while picking sweet peas in her garden.The 86-year-old broke her hip in the accident, and ended up spending 10 days in hospital.She explained that she’d initially called to her husband to help her, but he didn’t hear as he was watching a cricket match, and it was her son-in-law Dan who eventually came to her rescue.“[Dan] saw me and said, ‘I’ll get an ambulance’. I said, ‘Oh, no, I’m fine’, but he overruled me,” Dame Mary recalled. “He rang for the ambulance and they said, ‘We’re very, very busy’. It was Sunday afternoon and there were lots of football injuries and whatever.”She continued: “We waited for three-and-a-half hours, until 6pm, and quite right too! I was perfectly happy. There may have been a road accident.“I quite understood that they were busy and Dan was caring for me. He kept me chatting.”Eventually, she discovered that she’d broken her hip, with surgeons repairing the injury rather than giving the much-loved cook a replacement, with Dame Mary adding: “Oh, they were all lovely!”Dame Mary is best known for her stint hosting the Great British Bake Off alongside Paul Hollywood between 2010 and 2016.Since stepping down from Bake Off when it made the move to Channel 4, Mary has judged Britain’s Best Home Cook and fronted shows like Mary Berry Every Day and the festive special Mary Berry Saves Christmas.READ MORE:Mel And Sue Share Their 'Only Regret' About Quitting Great British Bake OffMary Berry Claims She's Never Had A TakeawayCamp Bestival Audience Stunned As Mary Berry Plays Drums For Rick Astley

Desperately seeking Diana: can any actor get to the heart of the people’s princess?
The princess is now a constant presence on our screens, from a camp musical to The Crown. Such a blank canvas is a dream for directors and a nightmare for actors, writes Hadley FreemanThe first imitation I ever saw of Diana, Princess of Wales was in my bedroom when I was five. It was a Diana Bride doll, ordered by my mother from a catalogue, although with her rictus smile and huge helmet of hair she looked more like Nancy Reagan. The details didn’t matter: she had the vague outlines of princess – big glittery jewels, big glittery eyes – so I could project whatever I wanted on to her, and I did; I played with her so much I snapped off her right foot.This is a true story, but if the metaphor within it feels too heavy-handed, then I would advise you to keep clear of the many films and TV shows about Diana, none of which shy away from the obvious metaphorical nudge and shove. In his eulogy for his sister at her funeral in 1997, Earl Spencer described her as “the most hunted person of the modern age”. Screenwriters since have taken that description and run pell-mell with it: in the last season of The Crown, she was a beautiful stag; in Spencer – the new film by Pablo Larraín, starring Kristen Stewart as Diana – she is a pheasant, “beautiful but not very bright”, as she sighs sadly. Both the stag and pheasant are, of course, hunted by the evil Windsors, because that has been the narrative around Diana ever since her death, even though not even the Daily Express still believes they actually killed her.
