PAUL Hollywood’s Bake Off co-stars and producers predicted for months that his romance with Summer Monteys-Fullam was doomed.
Colleagues expected the ageing lothario would be left red-faced again — some even suggesting a sweepstake on how long it would be before she chucked him.
Sources say his troubled love life has long been the talk backstage of the Channel 4 baking contest. One said: “Everyone could see this coming a mile off — except Paul.
