TV Sandi: My pal Paul will bounce Bake
GREAT British Bake Off judge Paul Hollywood will “bounce back” from his marriage break-up, says his co-star Sandi Toksvig.
Paul, 51, and wife Alexandra, 53, split last month after 19 years.
Bake Off host Sandi, 59, said: “He’s my friend, I will always be there for him. Of course he’ll bounce back.
“He’s lovely, such a teddy bear. Never mind about the steely blue eyes, he’s a great big cuddly bear.”
Paul and Alexandra had separated briefly in 2013 when he admitted a fling.
But Sandi, speaking at the Sky Women In Film And TV Awards, insisted Paul was “good and kind”.
She also said the secret to her own marriage to wife Debbie was “conversation – chatting and chatting”.
LOVE SPLIT Paul Hollywood
