Paul Hollywood has suffered another major blow - with his first bakery demolished to make way for an entrance to Euston Station.
The celebrity chef, 53, is in the midst of a bitter breakup with his ex-girlfriend Summer Moneys-Fullam, 24, after attempting to pressurise her into signing a gagging order.
And it's now been revealed that the Great British Bake Off star has also been dealing with the disappointment of losing Knead Bakery and Coffee, which was launched at the Central London station in September 2017.
Celebrated as 'an extension of Paul’s deep passion for baking', the bakery was quickly hit by bad reviews upon opening as customers branded the food 'disappointing and expensive'.

The cafe, backed by food service giants SSP, was demolished earlier this year and a new entrance to the station was put in its place.
There is reportedly no plans currently in place to revive Knead Bakery and Coffee in a different location.
A source told the Sun on Sunday: 'Paul had high hopes for Knead, so it was a big disappointment when he was told it was permanently closing.
'On paper the renovation was the reason for the closure, but behind the scenes at SSP there has been no drive at all to find a replacement location.
'Despite all the fanfare around Knead’s launch, the reviews were fairly negative from the start.'
