Paul Hollywood became one of the nation’s favourite judge and an unlikely heartthrob after appearing on popular BBC programme The Great British Bake Off, but his sterling reputation could now be over.
The 47-year-old baking whiz was forced to announce this week that his 15-year marriage with wife Alexandra is over, and many have been quick to suggest that his blossoming friendship with 34-year-old Marcela Valladolid, co-presenter on the American remake of the show, is to blame.
Friends of the star have said how shocked they were at the split, particularly as Paul and Alexandra enjoyed a romantic holiday in Paris just before he jetted off to America.
Filming for the American show ended just weeks ago, and Paul and Marcela have been keeping in contact regularly through Twitter.
No further comments have been made by Paul Hollywood or his agent, except to confirm the breakdown of his marriage, as he wishes to protect his 11-year-old son.
