Great British Bake Off host Paul Hollywood is on a romantic holiday with an ex-barmaid 30 years his junior, it is being reported today.
The 52-year-old, who has a house in Adisham, is understood to be in the Mauritius with Summer Monteys-Fullam, 22, whom he met at the Duke William pub in Ickham.
According to The Sun on Sunday, the couple are staying at a £1,000 a night villa in the Indian Ocean.
An onlooker told the newspaper: “They looked extremely happy together.
“Despite the age gap there was a lot of laughter and staring into each other’s eyes — plus lots of tactile nudges and touches.
“The hotel is very romantic. It’s not the kind of place you would take just a friend. He must be very keen on Summer.
“Despite looking more like father and daughter, when they did stroll around together they left people in no doubt that they were a couple.
“Summer has clearly put a smile on his face after a difficult time in his personal life.”
Hollywood, who used to run a bakery in Aylesham, split from his wife Alexandra last year.
They have a teenage son together.
Summer and Hollywood are reported to have stayed at a villa run by the Four Seasons company.
The onlooker added: “They seemed keen to avoid attention and spent most of the time in their villa, even eating meals there rather than mixing with other holidaymakers.
“They did not really go into the public areas or pools and seemed to just want some quiet time.”
Summer no longer works at the Duke William. It was reported that she quit her job after photographs surfaced last year showing Hollywood in a Nazi uniform complete with swastika during a party at a Kent pub in 2010.
