Paul Hollywood has told how his affair with his American co-star was “the biggest mistake of his life” in an unearthed interview. The Great British Bake Off judge, 56, split from his wife Alexandra Hollywood in 2019 after 15 years of marriage.
It came after news that Paul had had an affair with The American Baking Competition co-judge, Marcela Valladolid, 44.
Speaking in the interview, Paul explained how he truly felt he deserved to suffer the consequences for his actions.
However, the Bake Off host pleaded for privacy as he attempted to work things over with Alexandra.
Paul admitted to the affair in an honest interview with former Radio 5 Live presenter Richard Bacon in 2013.

It came in the form of a bombshell Instagram valentine’s day post this year.
Addressing her 19,000 followers, Alex wrote: “It’s taken me a while to get here and it hasn’t been easy, but I love the woman I am now.
“I know only too well that not every marriage/partnership is a recipe for happiness and success.
“My own marriage was too over seasoned with extra marital affairs for my taste and so I opted out and chose the single menu instead. It wasn’t easy and it took some getting used to.
“I wasn’t even sure I liked it much at first, but as I regained my confidence, my freedom and myself after so long, I discovered that it really isn’t a cliché to say happiness really does comes from within.”
Alex said she was more than happy with living the single life and says she has dismissed offers of entering into a relationship.
She added: “I still get the occasional well-meaning comment — that I’ll get ‘snapped up soon’ rather like a supermarket meal deal. People don’t like to believe that a woman can be happier single.”
In August 2019, Paul split from 23-year-old girlfriend Summer Monteys-Fullam, ending a two-year relationship.
