Paul ’s ex-wife Alex has spoken out for the first time since her split from the love rat, admitting she has finally rediscovered her 'sense of self'.

Alex, 55, is still in a legal battle with the Bake Off judge following their separation two years ago, while her ex-husband of 19 years was involved in a high-profile romance with barmaid Summer Monteys-Fulham, 24, until their bitter split last month.

Alex told The Times: 'For the past five years I’ve had my face on the front of newspapers. But now that I’m cooking and writing, it’s a positive thing.

'This is about who I am, not about my former marriage. I’ve been writing recipes for years.'

She also discussed the importance of time to herself to help her come to terms with her divorce.

She said: 'I’m a single mum and going through a divorce, so the morning walk is when I clear my mind. Now that I’m on my own, I realise how important it is for women to keep a sense of self - we can lose ourselves sometimes.'
