Sorry to ruin your day, bakers. The Great British Bake Off judge Mary Berry has announced that she's leaving the show. Her decision comes a little over a week after the show's presenters, Sue Perkins and Mel Giedoryc, announced that they'd be stepping down as the show moves from the BBC to Channel 4.

Berry said that she made her choice out of loyalty to the BBC. "I am just sad for the audience who may not be ready for change, I hope they understand my decision," the 81-year-old queen of pastry said. "I am so very sad not to be a part of it. Farewell to soggy bottoms."

Berry's co-judge, Paul Hollywood, is the only member of the Bake Off cast who will remain on the show. According to Channel 4, he's signed on for an additional three seasons. Hollywood tweeted on Thursday:
