Alex appeared on This Morning today to cook for hosts Phillip Schofield and Holly Willoughby but she also commented on her divorce from The Great British Bake Off star Paul.
Phillip began the interview by informing viewers that it was reported last month that the 54-year-old had a spat with Paul’s new girlfriend, Summer Monteys-Fullam in a Marks and Spencer’s.
However, Alex was keen to address reports and insisted she wanted to “move on” from her marriage to Paul.
She explained: “First of all, I was really excited about coming on the show to cook because really that’s what I do.
“The many reports in the papers about this so-called spat, fight… It’s supposedly in Marks and Spencer’s. I can categorically say that there is no truth to these.”
Alex told Phillip: “For me now, I want to move on. I really do. I have a whole life ahead of me.
“If you look over your shoulder you can’t look ahead.”
Holly then asked Alex about reports that she is still very angry about her divorce with Paul, which she opted not to comment on.
“I can’t comment anything that has been said in the press,” Alex said.
“A lot of things have been said that have no bearing on my marriage and divorce with Paul. I want to move on. I want to keep on cooking.”
She continued: “You can’t judge people all the time. At the end of the day, people are human.
“I want to move on. Nobody ever thinks they’re going to be divorced, but it happens, and you have to carry on.”
Alex then explained that she wants to just look forward to the future and experiencing things.
She said: “I want to be happy at the end of the day. I want to be settled and happy and experience new things.”
Phillip finished the interview by asking Alex whether she wanted Paul to be happy despite the divorce.
“Yes, of course,” she answered. “He is the father of my son.”
Host Holly also asked Alex whether she believed Paul’s rise to fame was one of the reasons behind their eventual break-up and if she had any regrets.
But Alex simply replied: “My grandmother always said always live with no regrets.”
She insisted she would have never got in the way of Paul’s career telling the duo: “Of course you’re going to take the chances.”
