GBBO’s Paul Hollywood has whisked new girlfriend to Paphos – on the same holiday he took his ex

PAUL Hollywood has taken girlfriend Melissa Spalding on holiday to Paphos – the exact same place he took TWO of his exes. 

The Great British Bake Off judge whisked his barmaid partner off to Cyprus earlier this week for their second ever holiday together. 

And sources say that Paul loves it there – which is why he’s treated three partners in a row to a break at the picturesque destination. 

They said: “Paul and Mel are happier than they’ve ever been and are looking forward to a break after a really busy few months.

“Paul’s been flat out on Bake Off while Mel has her hands full running a pub so they’ve earned some rest and relaxation. Paul’s happier than he’s been in years and Mel’s a major part of that.”

In fact, Paul likes the island so much he calls it his ‘second home’ and visits almost yearly. 

He originally visited in 1996, quitting his job in London and moving to Paphos to work at The Annabelle hotel, where he met wife Alexandra who was working as a scuba diving instructor in the holiday resort. 

They married at the five star hotel he’d worked at two years later, returning at least twice a year until their divorce in 2017. 

He later returned in 2018 with then-girlfriend Summer Monteys-Fullam, and a year later with Melissa. 

"I took it into my heart. Paphos was running through my veins," he revealed on his show City Bakes. 

He told a magazine that after moving out to the resort, “I’d taken a job as head baker at the Annabelle Hotel in Paphos for a year, but I loved living there so much that it ended up being six! 

“Cyprus is beautiful and the Mediterranean diet is amazing. I had a fantastic job and a great social life, so no wonder I didn’t want to leave.”
