SUMMER Monteys-Fullam has hit back at accusations that she is trying to make money from ex-Paul Hollywood’s name and attempting to “tarnish” his career.
The 24-year-old has rubbished claims she is going to sue the Bake Off judge after he said on social media that she was “making money and selling stories and continuously courting paps”.
The former barmaid claims she has “never sold a story” about their personal lives since their split in July and is only trying to make deals “as any young woman would”.
She said in a statement to the Daily Mail: “Due to recent stories that have been printed about me I feel I need to personally clarify and rectify recent press speculation.
“I have never sold a story on my personal life for financial gain or otherwise.
“I have never wanted to attend court to seek financial gain from Paul Hollywood or anyone else for that matter.”

A source said: “Alex’s lawyers have been forensically poring over these latest accounts.”
