Mary Berry’s friendship with Paul Hollywood has cooled off recently due to their differences over Alexandra, Paul’s former wife.
The two women split last year after 20 years of marriage, and Mary Berry is upset with how Paul handled the split. Tensions were reportedly at a fever pitch during the British Food Show when Hollywood was spotted attending the event with his new girlfriend Summer Monteys-Fullam.
Mary Berry and Paul Hollywood worked together on the Great British Bake Off for seven series, airing on BBC One and BBC Two in 2014 and 2017. However, the pair have not moved on since the show ended. As they are not related, it is unlikely that they will work together again in the future. Mary Berry, however, has spoken about Paul and their friendship and revealed her admiration for each other.
Although it is not yet known how they met, Mary has made it clear where her loyalty lies. Although she is frustrated with Paul’s recent behavior with Alex, Mary is still supportive of her friend. While she has not yet attempted to meet Summer, she is happy to work with Alex to boost her career. This support is admirable, but it is not clear how Paul feels about it.
Mary and Paul Hollywood have been associated since the early days of the Great British Bake Off. They worked together on the show as co-judges. They often disagreed with one another over flavor combinations, but worked well together for the show. The two share a common passion for cooking. They are also advocates for eating meat-free. Although they do not advocate veganism 100%, they are vocal about the environmental and physical benefits of eating a meat-free diet.
