Summer Monteys-Fullam breaks silence on NDA drama after Paul Hollywood split

Summer Monteys-Fullam has opened up about her split from Paul Hollywood after she refused to sign a non-disclosure agreement, as asked by the Great British Bake Off judge.

The pair met in 2017 when Summer was working behind the bar at the baker's local pub and – despite the age gap – the couple dated for two years.

Discussing the demise of the relationship, the raven-haired bombshell revealed she "stands by" her decision not to sign Paul's NDA.

"It isn’t about the age, it is about the person – who you love, trust and have mutual respect with… where you are free and accepted to be yourself without any imposed restrictions," she told Mail Online.

The duo's relationship was questioned by many after Paul hadn't long since split from wife of twenty years, Alexandra Hollywood, in November 2017.

Despite the criticism, the horse enthusiast moved into the TV star's £1million Kent home, but the relationship hit the skids when Summer refused to sign the gagging order which would have prevented her from talking about her relationship with Paul to her family and friends.

The 23-year-old admitted her relationship with the 53-year-old hasn't put her off from striking up something with an older man again.

"I'd date an older guy again. I don't think anyone in a relationship should sign an NDA. I'll stand by that."

Since the pair split earlier this summer, the master baker has stayed tight-lipped over their relationship, but did take to Instagram and stated his "silence is not a sign of weakness."

Uploading a selfie to the photo-sharing app, he wrote back in August: "Thank you for your messages I've been receiving it means a lot. My silence on any matters is not a sign of weakness or agreement of what's been said, merely I prefer a quiet life away from my day job.

"Take what's read with a pinch of salt and read between the lines. I know the public can't be duped into believing what's out there from a person making money selling stories and continuously courting the paps.

"There's always two sides to a story you've only heard one.. but alas I don't play those games," he concluded.

Paul has since moved on from Summer and is currently dating Melissa Spalding, who owns a pub near his home.

The couple, who have been together since October, recently enjoyed a luxury getaway to a resort in Cyprus – the same place he whisked ex Summer off to last year.
