The Great British star, 56, and his pub landlady girlfriend,  38, have been dating for the past  3 years. Many insiders claim that the star secretly proposed some months ago.

Despite his future possible marriage, Paul has already been married once before. The TV star and his former wife Alexandra who were married for 19 years divorced in 2017.

Cheating allegations were the reason behind the breakdown of their long marriage.

‘Paul proposed some months ago, but they have been keeping it very quiet since then.”

‘It’s only in the past month that she has begun wearing her engagement ring out in public, and sharing their news with friends.

‘There are no wedding plans in place yet.’

Insiders believe that the star proposed to his girlfriend during Easter this year, but the landlady only started wearing the ring publicly some time ago.

Last year, news of the couple’s live-in relationship became public as Mel moved to Hollywood’s countryside home that he actually bought for his former partner, Summer.

Melissa moved into Paul’s vintage 18th Century farmhouse after the Chequers Inn in Smarden, Kent, where she was previously staying went up for sale.

The couple’s closest friends once revealed that the pair were madly in love.

A friend revealed:

”Paul and Melissa spent a lot of time together in lockdown,’

‘They bubbled up together and stayed at his house. Now she is there for good. They are delightfully happy, though it must be a bit strange given it was bought for Summer.’

In November 2019, the alleged pair were holding hands by the pool at the five-star Annabelle hotel in Paphos, Cyprus. It was also the same place where Hollywood met and married his estranged wife Alex.

This is not Melissa’s first engagement. She was engaged before, once to a professional golfer Jason Barnes.

At the time, Hollywood was in court, setting his divorce and battling £10 million fortune from Alex out of court.

Also, the TV star’s ex, Summer announced that she was taking Paul to court for £4,000 over her two horse shelters which were built on his whooping £800,000 Kent farmhouse.

”All I have ever wanted was to get back what is rightfully mine – stuff I bought with my own savings… he’s punishing my horses with his spite.’
