We all love her on The Great British Bake Off, but it appears her charm and the way she rolls her pastry has propelled Mary Berry into FHM's 100 Sexiest Women in the World.

The 80-year-old TV star, who is known for unsuspecting innuendos on the hit show, has been placed 73th in the poll, sandwiched between Emma Stone, at 74, and Angelina Jolie, at 72.

It had been intended as a "hilarious" joke but the votes quickly poured in.

"There are sometimes internet campaigns to get unlikely people on to the list. One year we had a cartoon character from Family Guy, but I think Mary Berry has got to be the strangest yet," a FHM source told The Sun.

"I'm sure some of the people voting for her were doing it as a bit of a joke, but she got thousands of votes, so at least some of them must have been legitimate.

"She's a very confident and charismatic woman, so she might appeal to a certain demographic."

Former Coronation Street star Michelle Keegan was named the world's sexiest woman, followed by Kendall Jenner, who both have pushed last year's winner Jennifer Lawrence into third place.

Mary Berry was Amazon's bestselling cook in 2014 with her Mary Berry Cooks book beating the likes of Jamie Oliver.
