Paul Hollywood has reportedly tried to win back his ex-girlfriend Summer Monteys-Fullam with a text message saying he still loves her.
According to reports, friends of the 24-year-old, said she was ‘stunned’ to receive the text, which The Great British Bake-Off star, 53, ended with a kiss.
In the message, Paul is also said to have asked to meet Summer in person so that they can talk things through, vowing to help her become a social media influencer while blaming her mother Sabina for creating a rift between them.

A source told The Sun: ‘Paul seems to be trying to win Summer back. He sent her a text message that left her stunned.
‘He told her that he didn’t understand her decision to leave and that he still loved her very much.
‘He also accused her of confiding too much with her mum, and not enough with him. He said he felt that towards the end of their relationship she had become closed and didn’t allow them to sort their problems.’
MailOnline has contacted Summer Monteys-Fullam and Paul Hollywood’s representatives for comment.

Summer ended their romance earlier this month after he asked her to sign a gagging order prohibiting her from talking about their relationship.
Despite their bitter and public split, Paul appeared to be reunited with their beloved pet Rottweiler, Bear, on Thursday as he took to Instagram to share a snap of the dog he bought for his ex earlier this year.
The TV judge posted a picture of his pet pooch posing in the sun, he captioned it: ‘Morning, a fine looking pooch x’.
The sweet snap of Bear suggested that Paul has reunited with the dog or plans to see him soon, which could spark a potential custody battle against Summer after he reportedly gave her their pet pooch and horses following their split.

It comes after The Sun reported that the former couple have been at war over who keeps which of their animals with Paul originally insisting that their coop of chickens must stay with him, before he was forced to back down.
Since the public split, Summer moved back into her mum’s house and has continued to walk their dog Bear around Kent.
She also took to Instagram to hint that she had custody over their chickens earlier this month as she shared a photo of herself with them and revealed that Karen, Frederica and Ciro are ‘safe and well’.
Summer reportedly called it quits with Paul after he tried to make her sign a non disclosure agreement.
At the beginning of August, the TV star was seen calling in the locksmiths at his £1m Kent home just a few days after their nasty split as Paul accused Summer of selling stories to the press despite her previous denial.
Paul posted a serious-looking selfie on Instagram and accused Summer of trying to ‘dupe’ the public, trying to cash-in on their split and attempting to ‘play games’.

He said: ‘Thank you for your messages I’ve been receiving it means a lot. My silence on any matters is not a sign of weakness or agreement of what’s been said, merely I prefer a quiet life away from my day job.
‘Take what’s read with a pinch of salt and read between the lines. I know the public can’t be duped into believing what’s out there from a person making money selling stories and continuously courting the paps.’
He added: ‘There’s always two sides to a story you’ve only heard one.. but alas I don’t play those games.’
It was reported in February that Paul had bought Summer the pet Rottweiler in order to take the next step in their relationship.
Reports suggested that it was Summer who stormed out of the home in Kent that she shared with Paul, bringing an end to their 20-month relationship.
Summer dumped the GBBO star just days following his divorce from his estranged wife Alexandra.
The non-disclosure agreement (NDA) would reportedly have stopped Summer from discussing personal details of their relationship, including their sex lives and his wealth, with her family and friends.
Since their very public split, Summer has refused to stay quiet and has taken to Instagram to thank followers who said she had ‘dodged a bullet’ after dumping Hollywood, who is being divorced by his wife of 19 years Alexandra on the grounds of adultery.
Paul first met Summer while organising a birthday party for his wife Alexandra at his local pub, the Duke William, in Ickham, Kent, where she worked.
The pair went public with their romance in the same month his split with his estranged wife was confirmed.
