Great British Bake Off judge Paul Hollywood is moonlighting as a pizza chef in girlfriend's pub

December 12, 2021

BAKE Off’s Paul Hollywood is earning a fresh crust — making pizzas at his girlfriend’s pub.

The 55-year-old also has the most expensive one on the menu named after him.


Paul is worth more than £10million and earns £1.2million a year judging the Channel 4 show.

But locals can get him to fire up Italian grub at the Chequers Inn in Smarden, Kent.

Girlfriend Melissa Spalding, 37, is the landlady at the boozer, owned by her parents.

Its Facebook page says: “Delicious authentic Italian pizzas cooked fresh to order!!

“Our chefs for the night will be Scott Spalding and Paul Hollywood.” It is thought Scott is Melissa’s brother.

A source said: “Pubs are doing all they can to get punters’ bums on seats.

“While most landladies might have to shell out for a star chef, Melissa can just call her boyfriend. She and her parents hope he will get some business through the door.”

Paul’s Pizza, which boasts tomato, mozzarella, prosciutto, Parmesan and cream, is £13.
