Summer Monteys-Fullam fails to mention Paul Hollywood’s ex in gushing tribute

Summer Monteys-Fullam failed to mention the part she played in her love rival Alex Hollywood's hurt and upset after launching into a relationship with Paul Hollywood.

The Great British Bake Off judge, 53, was embroiled in a nasty split from 24-year-old former barmaid Summer last August after he was accused of asking her to sign a non-disclosure agreement to gag her from talking about their romance.

She refused and the pair split after almost two years of dating, with Summer having to move out of the plush Kent pad Paul had bought them and take her menagerie of animals with her.

But she insisted their relationship was real and she never had second thoughts about their nearly 30-year age gap.

"The age gap for me wasn't a problem. I didn't really care about it because if you love someone, then age is nothing but a number," she told the Sun's Fabulous magazine.

Summer and Paul went public with their whirlwind romance just days after Paul dropped the bombshell that he and Alex were ending their 19-year marriage.

But Summer made no mention of his ex-wife as she spoke about how in love she was with the mahogany tiger.

"It did move quickly and, yes, I was besotted at the beginning," she admitted.

“It was a sink-or-swim situation, so I chose to swim.

"From the bottom of my heart all the way up, I loved him."

For her part, Alex maintained a dignified silence about her husband dating a woman young enough to be his daughter – although she hit headlines in April 2018 when she shared an Instagram recipe for a summer dessert, along with the hashtags #easy and #tart.

Paul hit back with a recipe for sourdough bread.

And Alex told Prima magazine last January that she was devastated by her and Paul's separation, comparing 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," she added.

The couple were granted a quickie divorce last July, where a judge declared their marriage over in just 10 seconds.

That same day, Summer was papped wearing a t-shirt that declared her allegiance to 'Hollywood'.

But despite the rocky road back to singledom, Summer believes she never lost herself throughout the relationship and split.

"I didn't ask for this. I didn't ask for these doors to be opened, the world sucked me into it — in a good way, a really good way — and now I want to see what my options are," she added.

"I'm back to being the strong chick I was before, a few years ago."
