After his marriage to Alex, the baker moved on with barmaid and ex-girlfriend Summer Monteys-Fullam.

It was this relationship that caught the media’s attention.

The relationship was picked up not just because of the age difference of 29 years but because of unconfirmed rumours that the pair started before the baker’s marriage ended.

My own marriage was too over seasoned with extra marital affairs for my taste and so I opted out and chose the single menu instead.

Ex-wife Alex appeared to allude to rumours when she hinted that affairs were the reason for the break up.

On Valentine’s Day this year, she shared a post writing: “Women often lose themselves in relationships, we don’t naturally put ourselves first.

“I know only too well that not every marriage/partnership is a recipe for happiness & success.”

She went on to speak about her marriage, claiming: “My own marriage was too over seasoned with extra marital affairs for my taste and so I opted out and chose the single menu instead.”

Speaking to Prima Magazine in 2019, she said: “No one should underestimate how separation and divorce can hit you.

“I compare it to a moment where you’re driving along the motorway and then the next moment, something beyond your control happens and you’re driving in a completely different direction.

“You have to give yourself time to get your head round it.”

Who is he dating now?

The 56-year old baker is now dating girlfriend Melissa Spalding. The pair made their red carpet debut together in December 2021.

The couple began dating in October 2019, after Paul’s split from ex Summer. The pair have been described as being “madly in love”.

During lockdown the pair were believed to have moved in together in Hollywood’s farmhouse estate. An insider told the Mail Online: “They bubbled up together and [she] stayed at his house.

“Now she is there for good. They are delightfully happy, though it must be a bit strange given it was bought for Summer.”

Paul dated ex girlfriend Summer for two years following his split from ex-wife Alex.

However, Paul was later dumped by Summer after just two years together.

Paul Hollywood Eats Mexico is on tonight (July 10) on Channel 9 at 9pm.
