52-year-old English celebrity chef and 'The Great British Bake Off' judge Paul Hollywood called it quits on his 20-year marriage with wife Alex last year, and seemed to have moved on pretty quickly. He reportedly started dating barmaid Summer Monteys-Fullam, who is 30 years is junior, at the end of last year and his ex is said to be visibly irked by the relationship.

So much so, that according to the Sun, her most recent seemingly innocent Instagram post about a recipe for Summer Berry Tart is supposedly a subtle dig at the 22-year-old Summer. Accompanied with the recipe for the dessert were '#tart' and '#easy.' 


A friend close to Alex told the tabloid: "She’s understandably upset by the speed at which Paul appears to have moved on since their marriage broke down," adding: "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."

It is entirely possible that this is a kind of rebound relationship for Paul, but neither that nor Alex's snidey comments seem to have put her off. She's seems smitten in her newfound love for the celebrity chef, recently gushing on her now-deleted Instagram page: "You have turned me from a girl to a woman, and to a house woman. I am truly a lucky girl and have the best things and people and animals around me."

For his part, Paul has been treating summer like a princess. Worth an impressive £10million, he whisked the 22-year-old away on a trip to Mauritius this past March. He spared no expenses for their stay either, with reports suggesting that the pair crashed in a £1,000-a-night villa. More recent reports claim that Summer has even moved into Paul's £1.4million home.

Paul will soon have more pressing matters in his hand. Though he and Alex announced their separation last year, the divorce has not yet been finalized. His vast fortune is sure to come up in the proceedings and will be a contentious issue for both of their lawyers.
