Paul Hollywood’s ex-wife Alex admits ‘divorce is hard’ as she offers her side of supermarket spat with his new girlfriend, 23 (and insists she wants him to be ‘happy and settled’)
Published: 14 March 2019
Paul Hollywood’s ex wife Alex has hit back at claims she became embroiled in a spat with his new girlfriend Summer Monteys-Fullam, 24, in a supermarket. Appearing on Thursday’s This Morning, the chef, who wed the Great British Bake Off judge in 1998, said there was ‘no spat or row’ between her and barmaid Summer, 23, adding the police weren’t called and she didn’t use abusive language.
Alex also expressed a wish to be ‘settled and happy’ as she moves on from the pair’s ‘hard’ divorce, and hopes for the same for Paul, 53.Alex’s comments come after The Sun claimed she and Summer had become embroiled in an argument while shopping in a Marks and Spencer’s in Canterbury, Kent, earlier this year.
The fracas is even alleged to have resulted in police being called, having initially started at the checkout before spilling out into the car park, with one witness describing the language used as ‘disgusting’.
Denying the claims, Alex said: ‘First of all I was really excited to coming on the show to cook, I wanted to be here when you said I could come on and there’s also speculation about things so I would like to say the reports about this so-called spat, fight.
‘It’s supposedly in M & S but I can say I didn’t say those things, there was no spat no row, I didn’t call the police.
‘All of the stories are so far from the truth that I don’t want to comment on them at all, all I can say is that there was no row. ‘I didn’t use that language and I think the most important thing for me to say is divorce is such a hard thing to go on, it’s such a difficult thing especially if you’re in the public eye.’
Summer’s mother Sabina recently defended her daughter and took the TV baker’s former wife to task over her alleged nasty behaviour. Summer’s sister Saskia captioned the video, which has since been viewed thousands of times, ‘the truth is finally out’ before it cuts to her mother Sabina, who speaks for five minutes outlining what she understands to be the truth of the matter.
She says the attack was categorically started by the baker’s ex wife, who she says verbally abused her 23-year-old daughter as she went shopping.
But according to the Mirror, a spokesman for Alex insisted at the time: ‘Alex has kept a dignified position throughout the last 14 months, which have been extremely challenging, and continues to do so.
‘Alex was shocked to bump into Summer in her local supermarket, but even in that difficult situation she did not, and would not ever, verbally abuse anyone.’ Paul and Summer met when the baker was organising a birthday party for his wife at the pub where Summer worked.
They have insisted their relationship began only after his marriage fell apart in November 2017 but Alexandra filed for divorce last August on grounds of adultery.
Speaking about the intense speculation surrounding her and Paul’s marriage, she said: ‘I totally get that I was married to somebody who was part of one of the nicest shows for years, and alongside that you get the media interest.
