Paul Hollywood’s estranged wife Alexandra has spoken out for the first time since announcing their separation.

The cook made reference to the split in the tweet which showed off her home cooking, and later shared the recipe with her followers.

Alexandra tweeted: ‘Afternoon Tweeters! (..picks herself up brushes herself down ..) so I’m cooking my Grandma’s Coq au Vin today ..gimme an hour & I’ll post the recipe xxx.’

Alex and Paul sent out a joint statement announcing that they’d split recently, following a string of allegations that Paul had been cheating.

Paul was spotted closely embracing ex-Bake Off winner Candice Brown, although the pair have both vehemently denied that they kissed.

Meanwhile, it is claimed that Paul could lose up to half of his £10 million of his fortune in the divorce proceedings.

Solicitor Harold Walker revealed to the Daily Mail: ‘The starting point will be a 50:50 division of all assets. It doesn’t matter if his business interests and investments are in sole name or not.

‘They are part of a portfolio built up within a marriage and so his spouse is entitled to share of the spoils.’

The couple confirmed the news of their break up in a joint statement, saying. ‘It is with sadness that we have decided to separate.

‘Our focus continues to be the happiness of our son, and we would ask the press and public to allow us privacy as a family during this very difficult time.’

According to the Mail, Alexandra is currently said to be living in the couple’s £1.4million farmhouse in the Kent countryside, and security say the TV star is not at home.
