Paul Hollywood is looking for a place to rent in California so he can be close pastry chef Marcela Valladolid who is based in America, and the pair were spotted on holiday in Majorca last week
Paul Hollywood has been house hunting in the US to be near Marcela Valladolid.
The 'Great British Bake Off' judge - who has 12-year-old son Joshua with his estranged wife Alexandra Hollywood - is keen to rent a home in California as he's desperate to repair his relationship with the 35-year-old Mexican chef after spending a rocky few weeks apart.
Speaking to the Daily Mirror newspaper, a source said: "Paul is now talking about splitting his life between California and Kent [England] and is set on finding a place so he can be close to her.
"He doesn't want to spend too many weeks away from his son Joshua, but wants to build on what he has with Marcela."
The pair were spotted getting cosy last week - the first time they've been seen together as a couple - during a four-day break in Majorca, Spain, as they began working through their troubles.
The source explained: "Paul and Marcela are firmly back on track after a rocky few weeks apart.
"She felt he was not serious about their relationship as he hadn't seen her for weeks after news of the romance broke.
"But this week he told us he headed to Majorca and they met up. It was his way of showing his commitment."
