Paul Hollywood Splits From Wife Alexandra After 20 Years Of Marriage


Paul Hollywood and his wife Alex have announced they're separating.

They previously separated in 2013 after Paul admitted to having an affair with Marcela Valladolid, his co-star on the United States version of "Bake Off".

The TV baker previously lived in a Grade I-listed medieval home in Wingham that went on the market for £795,000.

"Our focus continues to be the happiness of our son. we ask the press and public to allow us privacy during this very hard time".

'It is with sadness that we have chose to separate, ' they added.

Both Paul and Candice, who is happily engaged to Liam Macaulay, laughed off the picture at the time but it can't have been pleasant for Alex to see her husband appearing to lock lips with the Bake Off beauty.

An insider told The Sun: 'The truth is they've worked really hard to salvage their relationship but just couldn't recover from the damage that had been done. 'I became the most hated man in the country, ' he said - reflecting on the show's controversial move to Channel Four a year ago.

'No kisses or hugs hello or goodbye from now on- handshakes or waves only!'

Candice won the 2016 series of The Great British Bake Off, which was the final series to air on BBC One.

Fellow judge Paul Hollywood was the only member of the original on-screen team to follow the show and got a lot of stick from viewers accusing him of being disloyal or mercenary. They have a son, Josh, together.

The couple reunited several months later and Paul said that the fling had been the "biggest mistake" of his life.
