Paul Hollywood is grateful his wife Alex has forgiven him for his affair and says the pair are now in a "good place"
Paul Hollywood feels "lucky" his wife has given him a second chance.
The 'Great British Bake Off' judge can't believe his wife Alex has taken him back after he was caught cheating on her with his 'The American Baking Competition' co-star Marcela Valladolid, and is determined to prove his devotion to her and their 12-year-old son Josh.
He told the Daily Mirror newspaper: "I love Alex to bits, she is amazing. I'm loving being with my family again. They are everything to me. I'm lucky to have this chance. I'm very well and in a good place.
"It's been hard having people seeing what's been going on, but we don't care what people think now. Last year was the toughest year I've ever had."
The 47-year-old silver fox treated his family to a skiing holiday over Christmas and hopes things will soon be back on track after his five-month split from his wife of 15 years.
Paul admits he has found it hard adjusting to fame and has been having special counselling to help him find a balance in his life.
He admitted: "It's a tricky beast. I'm actually getting training with how to deal with the limelight so that I don't mess up."
