Paul Hollywood signs up to US' Great British Bake Off

Paul Hollywood has signed up to the American version of the "Great British Bake Off".

The 51-year-old celebrity judge has made no secret of the fact he'd like to crack the market across the pond, and it looks like his dreams have finally come true as he's set to replace his former co-star Mary Berry on "The Great American Baking Show".

A source told The Sun newspaper: "This is a big deal for Paul and he's hoping that it will finally help him crack America. He wanted to leave some time after his last try and he thinks it will be the right time to give it another go."

And, although the production team were sad to see Mary go, they're thrilled to have the the silver fox on board and think he'll make the perfect team with judge Johnny Iuzzini.

The insider explained: "There's a great chemistry between him and Johnny, and having two male judges definitely works.

A spokesperson told the publication: "Mary would have loved to have joined Paul and Johnny for a guest appearance, but unfortunately it wasn't possible due to her current filming commitments."

Paul's new gig in the US comes four years after he left the States with his tail between his legs after he cheated on his wife Alexandra Hollywood with his the "American Baking Competition" co-star Marcela Valladolid in 2013.

Paul said at the time: "I did have an affair in America with my co-judge and it was something which was the biggest mistake of my life because actually I still love my wife.

"I'm at that point at the moment where we're talking, we are working to get back together again. But it's going to take time."
