Paul Hollywood regrets being famous

Paul Hollywood has admitted that life would be better if he’d never become a household name.

The Great British Bake Off judge has been at the centre of attention recently following an alleged affair with American TV presenter Marcela Valladolid which led to the end of his 15 year marriage.

And it seems like all the attention has taken it’s toll with Paul admitting: ‘I thought I’d spend my life making baguettes, muffins, croissants. I might have been happier if I had.’

Speaking during a recently interview Paul also confessed that he ‘broke down’ after his estranged wife Alexandra called an end to their relationship.

Paul, 47, said: ‘I won’t comment on my marriage for my son’s [Joshua, aged 11] sake. He became quite ill. I live about a mile from where I used to and love him to pieces. [After the marriage split] I broke down.

‘I’m upset and sad about the whole separation… Maybe fame has caused a problem, but it’s not fame as such. To nail it to that would be foolhardy. It’s the perfect storm, a blend of everything. One in two marriages fail.’
