The couple parted ways for good in November 2017 with Alex, 54, reportedly struggling to get over Paul's infidelity.

He had previously had an affair with his US Bake Off co-star Marcela Valladolid, which resulted in the couple's first split in 2013.

Alex cited "adultery" for the breakdown of the couple’s marriage, denied by Paul.

Now, Alex has been advised she is entitled to half his fortune, The Sun says, which is bumped up by around £1.5million thanks to various assets including horses and cars.
