Mary Berry wraps her Christmas turkey in a sleeping bag.

The former 'Great British Bake Off' judge has been cooking the festive bird for the past few years, despite her daughter Annabel hosting Christmas dinner for their family one-hour drive from the 83-year-old star's house.

As a result, Mary has to take precautions to ensure the turkey keeps warm on her travels, so she uses one of the padded bags to make sure the meat remains in-tact on her Christmas Day jaunt.

She is quoted by The Sun's Bizarre TV column as saying: "For the past couple of years, I've been to my children and I always take the turkey, which people think is odd. I went to my daughter Annabel's last year.

"She cooks most of the things, but I cook the turkey.

"It's an hour away, so I cook it in my own oven but then it's done a couple of hours early so I wrap it in foil, cover it in a sleeping bag then stick it in the boot of the car."

Mary may well have needed her sleeping bag for getting some shut-eye in earlier this year when she jetted off to Morocco and Italy to shoot her new show, 'Mary Berry's Quick Cooking', which will see her exploring the delights of musical festival delicacies.

A source said at the time: "It's Mary Berry as we've never seen her before and audiences are going to love every minute.

"She is a dream to work with and will pretty much say yes to all of the team's wacky ideas. It's refreshing to see such an established personality up for reinventing herself."
