Paul Hollywood has gone public with his new girlfriend Melissa Spalding, with the pair attending a star-studded event together last night.

The Bake Off judge, 44, and pub landlady Melissa, 37, were at the premiere of The King's Man in Leicester Square, London, on Monday night.

The film, which stars Gemma Arterton and Ralph Fiennes, is a prequel to the 2014 film, Kingsman: Secret Service.

Paul and Melissa are thought to be living together in his countryside home.

They got together after Paul Split from his ex Summer Monteys-Fullam in 2019. It is thought that they met at the pub Paul regularly drinks at, and friends told the Daily Mail that they are 'madly in love'.

A friend said: "Paul and Melissa spent a lot of time together in lockdown.

"They bubbled up together and stayed at his house. Now she is there for good. They are delightfully happy, though it must be a bit strange given it was bought for Summer."

In 2019, Paul took Melissa on a luxury holiday to a five-star resort in Cyprus where he used to work as head baker.

Sources told The Sun at the time that they are "happier than they’ve ever been" and will enjoy their trip after a "really busy few months".
