Summer Monteys-Fullam admitted that she was ‘confused’ with Paul Hollywood when their relationship first started, but was warned by her mother that the relationship could ‘explode’.
The former barmaid, 24, dated the Great British Bake Off star, 53, for a few months before the relationship imploded in arguments and legal battles.
Talked to The Sun’s Fabulous magazine, Summer told how she fell headlong for Paul when they first started dating in November 2017.
Wow! Summer Monteys-Fullam admitted that she was “confused” with Paul Hollywood when their relationship first started, but was warned by her mother that the relationship could “explode”
She said: “It went quickly and yes, I was confused at the beginning.”
Summer’s mother Sabina had reservations about the 29-year age difference between the couple and feared from the start that the relationship would not work.
Sabina said: ‘You have a beautiful young redhead with an older man … the age difference. It was all there. I always knew it would explode. “
While the age gap between Summer and Paul raised the eyebrows, the model insisted it never bothered her.

Honestly: in an interview with The Sun’s Fabulous, Summer told how she fell headlong for Paul when they first started dating in November 2017
She said: ‘The age difference was not a problem for me. I didn’t really care, because if you love someone, then age is nothing but a number. “
The couple kept their romance private for several months, but Summer received a blessing from her families, including her 12-year-old sister.
Summer admitted that she was the victim of cruel online trolling after her relationship with Paul became public, while Sabina explained how she saw a change in her daughter.
However, time heals all wounds and Summer now feels that she is again the “strong girl” she was a few years ago.
Summer, who dumped the TV star after asking her to sign a confidentiality agreement about their relationship, also insisted that she never intended to live a life in the spotlight before going out with Paul.
Summer said: “It went quickly and yes, I was confused in the beginning”
However, now that doors have been opened for her, the social media star said she wants to see what her new options are.
Paul’s marriage to his ex Alex almost came to an end in 2013 when it was revealed that he had had an affair with his co-star The American Baking Competition, Marcela, 42.
He told The mirror in July of that year: “It’s my fault. I’m very sad about what happened. I am very sad about it and about what it has brought to the family. “
However, Alex took him back three months later for the sake of their son, only for the couple to announce in November 2017 that it was officially coming to an end.
The news about Paul’s relationship with Summer led to Alex’s indignation, who shortly afterwards asked for divorce for adultery, with sources saying she believed he had had an affair with Summer before their divorce.
Their romance caught an avalanche of headlines when Paul Summer used countless luxury gifts and even bought a £ 1 million home in Kent that they could share in February of last year.

However, it all collapsed in the summer when Paul Summer asked to sign a confidentiality agreement prepared by his lawyers, which she refused to do.
She also recently revealed that she is bringing her former flame for £ 4,000 for her two horse shelters, which was built last year in his £ 800,000 farm in Kent.
Summer claimed that she had been left with ‘no alternative’ but to take legal action against the Bake Off judge four months after they had ended their two-year relationship.
She told MailOnline: “The only thing I ever wanted was to get back what is lawful of me – things I bought with my own savings … he punishes my horses with his resentment.”
The social media influencer bought the first stable when she moved her horses to his monumental home in January and built the second one in March for her pregnant mare.
“I am incredibly disappointed that I had to choose this way of acting against Paul,” she said. “Dealing with Paul is a nightmare – everything is done through his lawyers.”

The interview of the redheads comes after her recent appearance at Good Morning Britain, where she revealed that she had twice been the victim of stalking.
Summer told hosts Piers Morgan and Susanna Reid that she had been stalked on a motorcycle for a year by an unknown man when she was only 18 years old.
Summer said: ‘It was very scary because he was on a motorcycle and I could not see his face. I didn’t know what he looked like, how old he was. It was very scary.
“He would follow me on my horses, he would hide in bushes – I had to go so far as to change my routine.”
Summer then argued for the introduction of a stalking register after she shared that she was also stalked by a guard after her split from the famous chef Paul in August last year.

The beauty recently proclaimed her master-baker ex as a ‘stalker’ after his apparent following of his ex on her social media.
Summer accused Paul of creating fake accounts to follow her on platforms such as Instagram.
She shared a quote on her Instagram stories last month with the text: “Hello stalker, I’m fine. Thank you for checking. “
Summer completed her message and added a row of smiling emojis under the words and chose not to add any further comments.
Paul, who is estimated to be worth £ 10 million, seems to have found love for a pint again because he recently confirmed that he is out with the landlady at his local pub.
The TV judge has denied that he enjoyed a romance with Melissa Spalding, 36, because their friendship was revealed in August after his divorce from the summer.
