Paul Hollywood has been ridiculed by fans for fun with a young Bake Off participant his age, despite the fact that his ex was just two years older when they met.
The Bake Off judge, 53, asked the 20-year-old hopefully if his & # 39; mother knew he was outside & # 39; during an uncomfortable activity during the first episode of the show on Tuesday.
However, viewers quickly accused the TV star of hypocrisy due to the fact that he had dated 24-year-old Summer Monteys Fulam, with whom he recently broke up after asking her to sign a confidentiality agreement.

While the bakers started their cakes, Paul and his co-judge Prue Leith walked around the tent and met the latest batch of participants.
When they approached Jamie Finn, they were accompanied by presenter Sandi Toksvig, who asked Jamie, who is currently a year in between, how old he was.
Jamie replied & # 39; I'm 20 & # 39; before Paul jumped in and replied with & # 39; Does your mother know you're here? & # 39; and he confirmed that he could & # 39; get out & # 39 ;.

Paul was furiously dumped by the summer last month after he had asked her to sign a confidentiality agreement that would prevent her from discussing their relationship.
The barmaid said she betrayed & # 39; felt about the TV chef pressuring her to sign a gagging order when she threatened to write a tell-all book.
When she went to Instagram earlier this month, she revealed that she is taking legal action after claiming she & # 39; sought publicity & # 39; and her split tried to cash in.

In the post, which consisted only of the text explanation, Summer wrote: & # 39; I am very disappointed and disturbed by false and very libelous statements that Paul has made about me online since my breakup.
& # 39; I have had no choice but to instruct my lawyers Brett Wilson LLP to institute legal proceedings against Paul to obtain justice.
& # 39; I have never publicized my relationship with Paul and I am deeply disappointed that the relationship ended this way. I have no further comments and ask that the privacy of me and my family be respected. & # 39;
A representative for Paul Hollywood declined to comment when contacted by MailOnline.
Explosive: the barmaid said she was betraying & # 39; felt about the TV chef pressuring her to sign a gag when she threatened to write a tell-all book
When a Brett Wilson LLP representative contacted MailOnline, & # 39; Summer said she was very disappointed and disturbed by false and very defamatory statements that Paul Hollywood has made since her breakup online.
& # 39; She has no choice but to order our office to institute legal proceedings against Mr. Hollywood to obtain justification.
& # 39; The summer has never expressed publicity about the relationship and is therefore deeply disappointed that things have ended this way. She has no further comments and requests that the privacy of her and her family be respected. & # 39;
Glamorous: in the caption, Summer wrote that she was & # 39; disappointed and sad. & # 39; was by Paul's claims and furiously denied that she & # 39; strives for publicity & # 39;
Furious: the barmaid, 24, brought to Instagram and revealed that she is taking legal action in response to his claims that she wanted & # 39; publicity & # 39; after their split last week
It comes after Paul went to Instagram Monday to post a serious-looking selfie and Summer accused him of trying to & # 39; cheat & # 39 ;, cash in on his split and try & # 39; games & # 39; to play.
He said: & # 39; Thank you for the messages I received, it means a lot. My silence on all matters is not a sign of weakness or agreement on what has been said, I prefer a quiet life away from my daily work.
& # 39; Take what is read with a pinch of salt and read between the lines. I know that the public cannot be misled by believing that someone earns money to sell stories and decorate dads all the time. & # 39;
Betrayed: Summer Paul struck back in an Instagram post, insisting that she did not leak the story about the confidentiality agreement
Hurt: The barmaid, who met him during her work at the local Hollywood pub in Kent, added that she was thrown under the bus & # 39; by her ex boyfriend
He added: & # 39; There are always two sides to a story, you've only heard one .. but unfortunately I don't play those games. & # 39;
After their breakup, Summer rushed out of the property that she shared with Paul, ending their 20-month relationship.
The divorce of the couple comes when Paul prepares for a divorce session with his estranged wife who ended her 19-year marriage with the star in 2017.
Alexandra filed a divorce on the grounds that Paul had committed adultery, and last month District Judge Robert Duddridge ruled that the estranged woman was the # unbearable & # 39; found to live with the chef.
Nasty: it comes after Paul went to Instagram on Monday to accuse Summer of trying to & # 39; dupe & # 39; audience, trying to cash in on their split and trying to play & # 39; games & # 39;
Last month a judge granted Paul and his estranged wife a decree nisi after their split. But the absolute decision to completely end the marriage must wait for a financial settlement.
It is understood that Alex wants half the money from the star after getting him from & # 39; adultery & # 39; has been accused in papers submitted to the Central Family Court in London.
A source close to the family said: “This looks more like months than weeks now, Paul is not willing to give Alex the reasonable amount she is entitled to at this stage.
& # 39; She had hoped it would be simple, but it is far from it now. It is really sad that it gets so dirty, everyone wants to go on – no more than the summer. & # 39;
