Paul Hollywood's very public and seemingly bitter split with Summer Monteys-Fulham has taken a new twist.
According to reports, the Great British Bake Off judge, 53, has 'tried to win back' Summer with a series of 'gushing text messages'.The Sun reports that Paul has allegedly texted 24-year-old saying that he 'still loves her' and ended it with a kiss.
The report also said that he pleaded with her for a one-to-one meeting.
He even told her that he would help her to achieve her dream of becoming a 'social media influencer'.
"Paul seems to be trying to win Summer back. He sent her a text message that left her stunned," a source was quoted as saying.
He told her that he didn’t understand her decision to leave and that he still loved her very much.
"He told her that he didn’t understand her decision to leave and that he still loved her very much. He said that he wanted to sit down and talk, just the two of them, to see if they could sort things out.
"He also accused her of confiding too much with her mum, and not enough with him. He said he felt that towards the end of their relationship she had become closed and didn’t allow them to sort their problems."
ED! has contacted Paul's reps for comment.
Summer was said to have dumped Paul earlier this month, after claims that she stormed out of his mansion following a late-night showdown over a non-disclosure agreement.
She is reported to have moved her belongings out of the home, which the couple shared.
He then broke his silence following split on Instagram.Opening up on the social media site, Paul told his followers there are "two sides to every story".
He said: "My silence on any matters is not a sign of weakness or agreement of what's been said, merely I prefer a quiet life away from my day job!"
