Paul Hollywood's estranged wife Alexandra has landed an advertising deal to promote chocolate for Tesco
Paul Hollywood's estranged wife has landed an advertising deal with Tesco.
Alexandra Hollywood - who was left devastated after her spouse had an affair with his 'The American Baking Competition' co-star Marcela Valladolid - will promote the supermarket's own brand chocolate using her recipes for puddings.
Tesco's Stuart Shaw said: "Her recipes will be perfect for Christmas."
Alexandra - who shares her recipes on Twitter every day - has previously signaled a desire to step out of Paul's shadow.
She has said: "Paul and I were a great team.
"I was behind the scenes, now I need something for me."
'The Great British Bake Off' host - who has 11-year-old son Joshua with Alexandra - recently admitted he hopes to win back his wife of 15 years.
He said "I did have an affair in America with my co-judge and it was something which ... it was the biggest mistake of my life because actually I still love my wife.
"We're talking, we are working to get back together but it's going to take time.
"I was shocked about the whole thing kicking off the way it did ... but I deserved it and I've taken it. It was my punishment."
