Summer Monteys-Fullam, the former girlfriend of The Great British Bake Off's Paul Hollywood, has claimed she is "being thrown under the bus" after her refusal to sign a non-disclosure agreement (NDA) signalled the end of their relationship.
It was reported at the weekend that the two had gone their separate ways, with the Bake Off star's solicitor Tom Amlot quoted as saying: "I asked Summer to sign an NDA as is standard practice in order to protect Paul's family and their private lives."
"Summer insisted that she had no intention of selling any stories to the press and declined," Amlot said in a statement to the Press Association.
"I think that her refusal to discuss or sign it caused concern, understandably, so it's not entirely surprising that they have gone their separate ways."

After comments made by 53-year-old Hollywood on Instagram, Monteys-Fullam took to the social media platform to say she felt "betrayed" in being asked to sign the NDA.
She said on her Instagram story that she "had clearly demonstrated loyalty to Paul during our relationship".
"With regards to 'courting the paps' this is a baseless and ridiculous statement to make as they were a constant feature of our lives!" she added, in reference to Hollywood's post.
The 24-year-old said she did not work with the paparazzi, but because she accepted their presence as "part of our lives" and "dealt with it differently", she was "now being thrown under the bus".
Hollywood and his wife Alexandra split two years ago. She filed for divorce on the grounds of adultery, with a decree nisi granted in the Central Family Court in London last month. A marriage formally ends when a decree absolute is granted. The former couple had married in 1998.
