Great British Bake Off star Paul Hollywood’s son ‘snubbed’ wedding to pub landlady

The Great British Bake Off judge Paul Hollywood suffered an unfortunate family snub during his wedding day on Wednesday, according to reports.

The famous cook and TV star got married for the second time to pub landlady Melissa Spalding, but it's been said that his son and only child Josh chose not to attend the nuptials.

Paul, 57, opted to jet off to Cyprus for a luxurious ceremony and reception at The Anassa hotel, and the loved-up couple enjoyed a slap-meal and all the trimmings.

There were 75 of the TV chef's 75 friends and family in attendance, including GBBO star Prue Leith, but it is believed that Paul's 21 year old son bowed out of the important event.

Paul shared son Josh with his ex-wife Alex Hollywood, whom the star met in Cyprus in 1997. They were married two years later, but decided to call it quits 20 years on.

Alex has publicly accused Paul of "multiple affairs" during their two-decade long marriage, and the pair even split up once before their divorce, reportedly as a result of the chef having an affair with his American Baking Competition co-star Marcela Valladolid.

When the duo finally divorced in 2019, Alex said she "didn't want to carry on" in the marriage any longer and putting up with Paul's infidelity.

“My own marriage was too over-seasoned with extra marital affairs for my taste and so I opted out and chose the single menu instead," the self-professed Instagram cook joked at the time.

The star told The Mirror that year the split was his "fault", going on to explain: "I am very sad about what has happened.

"I do feel very sad about it and what it brought on the family."

The resort where Paul and new-wife Melissa, 39, married is reported to be the same one where the cook and his ex regularly holidayed together, and on some of the trips, with son Josh in tow.

Following Paul and Alex's divorce, it was also reported back in 2019 that Josh hadn't spoken to his dad in two years.

At the time, Paul was dating 22 year old Summer Monteys-Fullam amid finalising his divorce, and the dad-of-one was reported to have fallen out with his son over it.

"Paul hasn’t seen his son since November 2017 and the split has been deeply distressing to him," a representative for Alexandra told The Mail On Sunday.

"Paul is aware of his son’s feelings on the matter… Josh has behaved admirably over the past two years."
