The insider said:

“Paul loves having Melissa around and they’ve been great company for each other in lockdown.

“But he and Melissa are really happy together.”

Paul’s country home in Kent is his country home.

Paul and his relationship history

Paul was earlier married and his wife was Alexandra. The two had met first in Cyprus when he was serving as a head baker at a five-star hotel there. She was the scuba diving instructor at the same hotel. The two started a relationship and wed in the same island. But things turned sour between the two and they separated. The split came in 2013 when he admitted that he was having an extramarital affair with the co-host of the show The American Baking Competition, Marcela Valladolid.

But soon after the couple reconciled and tried to make things work. But it did not and they again separated for good in November 2017.

Paul then started dating barmaid Summer Monteys-Fullham. The two had met in the summer of 2017. She was working at his local pub, the Duke William located in Ickham in Kent. She left that job in November 2017. Her parents had a tattoo removal ship in London. She was a small-time model and has three sisters. But by August 2019, the relationship ended. This happened because Paul had asked her to sign a non-disclosure agreement and she was angry. Hence, she dumped him.

The relationship of Paul and Melissa

The couple met at the pub which she owns near his country home. She is the landlady there and he was drinking at her pub. They started dating in September 2019. She has been spotted in the Kent home of Paul. And now she has completely moved in with him there.

Paul had a four bedroom home in Wingham. He sold it in 2016 for £800,000 after he and his wife separated.
