After it was revealed Paul Hollywood has a new 22-year-old girlfriend, his ex wife has seemingly made a very subtle dig at the Great British Bake Off judge.
Telly star Paul announced his split from Alexandra in November after nearly 20 years of marriage, and has since moved on with Summer Monteys-Fullam who’s 30 years his junior.
And while the pair have both stayed pretty quiet on the matter, now it’s thought that Alex has made a thinly veiled jibe at her estranged husband on Twitter.
Posting to her 12.5K followers, keen cake-maker Alex shared a tart recipe along with a delicious-looking photo of her pudding.
And while this all seems fairly innocent, speculation has begun as to whether there was hidden meaning behind the caption, which reads: “Summer Berry Tart… made with strained Greek yoghurt (it becomes velvety like mascarpone), flavoured with lemon zest, vanilla and honey, topped with fresh berries on a baked biscuit base.”
Along with the recipe, Alex then added the cheeky hashtags “tart” and “easy”.
Following the reports, a friend of Alex has reportedly told The Sun: “She’s understandably upset by the speed at which Paul appears to have moved on since their marriage broke down.
“But she’s also amused by the sight of a woman striking up a relationship with a man who’s old enough to be her dad.”
Well, whether it’s a dig or just an innocent hashtag, Paul’s girlfriend Summer doesn’t appear to be bothered about the backlash as she recently admitted she’s ‘loving life’ with her 52-year-old beau.
Speaking to the Mail Online, said said: “I’m fine and I’m enjoying life. I’m not upset… I’m happy. Why should it [the age gap] bother me?”
“There are many other people in the world with age gaps, and marriages and kids and everything else and I’m fine.”
Summer – who met Paul while working as a barmaid at his local pub – also made it clear that their romance didn’t begin until ‘way after his marriage ended’.
