Police called to altercation between Paul Hollywood’s young lover and ex wife

The argument spilled out into an M&S car park

A new report claims Paul Hollywood's current and former partners were caught up in a dramatic confrontation in a supermarket car park this week.

The chef's ex-wife, Alex Hollywood, confirmed she'd called the police after onlookers claimed she lashed out in a swear-y rant, calling his lover, Summer Monteys-Fullam a "[bleep]."

Onlookers at the M&S in Kent, told The Sun the pair came face-to-face while shopping.

Alex, 54, is said to have sworn at the 23-year-old, who was with her mum and sister in the shop, with onlookers claiming she asked Summer: "Do you know how much you’ve hurt my son?"

A second altercation followed in the car park, where the source adds: "Summer’s group hammered on [Alex's] window as she drove off. She later called police complaining of harassment."

The newspaper also spoke to a friend of Alex - who married Paul in 1998 and is mum to Josh, 17 - who insisted: "She was so shocked to see Summer that all she could say was, 'Do you know how much you’ve hurt my son?' Summer laughed and started filming as Alex walked to her car. That’s when the other women started verbally abusing her. Alex was shaken and called the police."

Her spokesman told the tabloid: "There was an unpleasant incident at the supermarket on Tuesday afternoon which frightened Alex and as a result she called the police. They dealt with the matter accordingly."

Alex, who confirmed, along with Paul, the end of their marriage in November 2017, compared the divorce to a bereavement.

She admitted she needed to give herself time "to get [my] head round it". The food author added: "No one should underestimate how separation and divorce can hit you.

"I went through the same five stages of grief that a bereaved person does [denial, anger, bargaining, depression and acceptance]. You go there in your own way, but I think it's healthy to do that.

"Being able to be weak is a strength, too, and it's okay to sit and have a cry."

Summer and the Great British Bake Off star have always insisted they started dating after Paul's marriage ended, but Alex accused Paul of adultery in divorce papers.
