Summer Monteys-Fullam posts a saucy selfie as her ex Paul Hollywood’s estranged wife Alex declares it’s ‘her time to shine’ after helping Bake Off star hit success
She has found herself caught up in Great British Bake Off star Paul Hollywood’s divorce battle with estranged wife Alex last year.
But Summer Monteys-Fullam proved she wasn’t letting her ex-boyfriend’s drama get her down as she posted a very saucy photo from the Pig Hotel in Canterbury on Tuesday.
The former barmaid, 24, flashed her ample cleavage as she lay down on her front to accentuate her peachy bottom in the snap taken in her hotel room.

Summer, who dumped Paul in August after he asked her to sign a non-disclosure agreement about their romance, sported a blue thong swimsuit with white detailing and a very sparkly pair of heels.
She cheekily stuck her tongue out as she posed for the camera.
‘Self love is the greatest middle finger of all time,’ she captioned the post to followers on Instagram.
Summer has been enjoying her down time of late, going on nights out with friends and tending to her horses.

Her fun-loving antics come as Paul Hollywood’s estranged wife Alex declared that she’s ready to forge her own path to success, after helping her ex rise to TV stardom.
The 56-year-old cookery writer – whose marriage to Bake Off star Paul crumbled in 2017, four years after his affair with Marcela Valladolid – insists she played an instrumental role in his rise to fame, and now hopes to achieve the same for herself.
She told OK!: ‘When Paul and I first came back from Cyprus [where they met], we literally had £1,000 and a suitcase. We worked hard together and as a result of that, Paul got The Great British Bake Off and did really well.

‘Through hard graft from both of us, he got to the point where he was so big with Bake Off and now it’s my time to shine. I’m not saying I don’t wish him well, I really hope that he will find happiness.’
Alex, who shares 18-year-old son Joshua with Paul, 53, says she has moved on from her marriage – but she’s ruling out romance until their divorce is finalised.
When asked if she’s dated since the split, she responded: ‘I’m not properly divorced yet so I want to get that over with first… I have divorce fatigue. I just want it over with so I can reassess how I’m going to live my life and find out who I want to be.’

Paul and Alex’s marriage came close to ending in 2013, when it was revealed that he’d had an affair with his The American Baking Competition co-star Marcela, 42.
He told The Mirror in July of that year ‘It’s my fault. I am very sad about what has happened. I do feel very sad about it and what it brought on the family.’
However, Alex took him back three months later for the sake of their son, only for the pair to announce in November 2017 that things were officially coming to an end.
Announcing the end of their union, the pair said in a statement: ‘It is with sadness that we have decided to separate.

‘Our focus continues to be the happiness of our son, and we would ask the press and public to allow us privacy as a family during this very difficult time.’
That same year, Kent barmaid Summer Monteys-Fulham, 24, sparked headlines when she revealed that she’d embarked on a romantic relationship with Paul.
Her revelation sparked outrage from Alex, who filed for divorce on the grounds of adultery soon afterwards, with sources saying she believed he’d been having an affair with Summer before their split.
Their romance attracted an avalanche of headlines as Paul treated Summer to countless lavish gifts and even purchased a £1million house in Kent for them to share back in February of last year.

However, things came crashing down in the summer, when Paul asked Summer to sign a non-disclosure agreement drafted up by his lawyers, which she refused to do.
She also recently revealed that she is taking her former flame to court for £4,000 over her two horse shelters, built at his £800,000 Kent farmhouse last year.
Summer claimed she’d been left with ‘no alternative’ but to take legal action against the Bake Off judge four months after they ended their two-year relationship.
She told MailOnline: ‘All I have ever wanted was to get back what is rightfully mine – stuff I bought with my own savings… he’s punishing my horses with his spite.’

The social media influencer purchased the first stable when she moved her horses to his Grade II listed home in January, and built the second in March for her mare who was pregnant.
‘I’m incredibly disappointed that I’ve had to choose this course of action against Paul’, she said. ‘Dealing with Paul is a nightmare – everything is done through his lawyers.’
Paul, who is estimated to be worth £10million, appears to have found love over a pint once again, as he recently confirmed he is dating the landlady of his local pub.
The TV judge has repeatedly denied that he was enjoying a romance with Melissa Spalding, 36, since their friendship was revealed in August after his split from former barmaid Summer.

However, after the couple spent Christmas Day at the Chequers Inn in Smarden, Kent, a spokesman for Paul said: ‘They are very happily together.’
It is now understood that they are on a mini-break.
A source close to the couple said: ‘Melissa was pulling pints and cleaning tables on Christmas Day so they didn’t get to spend much time together, but they are away now.’
In November, the pair were spotted holding hands by the pool at the five-star Annabelle hotel in Paphos, Cyprus, where he also met and married his estranged wife Alex.
Onlookers saw them looking ‘very happy together’.
