The Great British Bake Off 2019 is just around the corner and judge Paul Hollywood has brushed off the drama with his ex to share an exciting snap of the upcoming series.

Teaming up with fellow judge Prue Leith and hosts Sandy Toksvig and Noel Fielding for an Alice in Wonderland Mad Hatters tea party, Paul, 53, shared the magic photo on his Instagram amid his spilt with 24-year-old Summer Monteys-Fullam.

The baker teamed the shot on his Instagram with the caption: Not long now to wait …. #gbbo.

Paul was dumped by the barmaid this month after he asked her to sing a gagging order which banned her from discussing their sex lives, his wealth or their private lives.

Sources claimed Summer was horrified at Pauls controlling behaviour and ended things for good – just days after the TV star finalised his divorce from wife of 21 years, Alexandra.



Paul slammed his ex online, accusing her of courting paps to make money so now Summer is taking him to court for his defamatory statements.

The latest event in the break-up saga is Paul reportedly hiding his £225k Aston Martin over fears Summer will claim it.

A source told The Sun: Paul has gone to great lengths to keep his purchase away from Summer and has hidden it at his local pub instead of parking at home.

Despite all the drama in his personal life, Paul seems excited for Bake Off to return.
