BAKE OFF star Paul Hollywood is splitting again from his wife Alexandra after almost 20 years of marriage.

It comes after recent United Kingdom tabloid claims that Hollywood, who'd already been caught having an affair with a judge on the U.S. version of Bake Off back in 2013, had been seen kissing Bake Off victor Candice Brown last month.

What happened between Paul Hollywood and former Bake Off victor Candice Brown?

Candice won the 2016 series of The Great British Bake Off, which was the final series to air on BBC One.

Paul Hollywood and Alex's joint statement reads: 'It is with sadness that we have made a decision to separate'.


"Our focus continues to be the happiness of our son", they said in a statement.

Paul and Alex Hollywood previously separated in 2013 after the famous chef admitted that he had had an affair with Marcela Valladolid, a co-star of his from the American version of Bake Off.

They reconciled a few months later after what Hollywood called the "biggest mistake of my life". There was no let-up but now I feel we're in a very good place.

Co-judge Mary Berry and presenters Mel Giedroyc and Sue Perkins chose not to go with the baking programme when it was sold previous year. That was my idea. The way to every woman's heart is through her stomach. I'm an eternal optimist, he's an optimist.

He has also accused his former co-presenters Mary Berry, Mel Giedroyc and Sue Perkins of having "abandoned" Bake Off, in an interview with the Radio Times yesterday. That was a lovely thing to do'.
