Alex Hollywood Keeps Married Name Post-Divorce

Alex Hollywood has revealed that she has no intention of reverting back to her maiden name once her divorce from estranged husband Paul Hollywood is finalised.

Explaining her reasons behind the decision, Alex said it is for the sake of her 17 year-old son Josh, who she shares with the 'Great British Bake Off' judge.

Appearing on 'Loose Women', the chef said: "I've been Hollywood for, gosh, probably nearly 20 years. You kind of grow into that name. More importantly, I'm getting divorced, but I'm not divorcing my son, he's a Hollywood. I'm his mum, I'm not going to get rid of his name.

"I am Alex Hollywood, I write as Alex Hollywood and I am Josh Hollywood's mum. That's the person I am now, that's the person I've grown into and that's the person I'm going to stay. People can say what they want. I know what's right for me and I know what's right for my son."

The 55 year-old has also ruled out finding new romance until she becomes legally single.

She told HELLO! Magazine in September: "I'm not even divorced yet. Until that's complete, I won't even consider it.

"This is time for me, now. I haven't been me for so many years because, like a lot of women, I lost my sense of self and gave myself to everyone else. I'm heading in a different direction to the one I'd anticipated, but I'm enjoying the ride and feel excited about the future. I am in a good place and really excited about what's ahead. I think of it as a bit like a bungee jump. You feel nervous before it happens, but when you make that leap you think, this is amazing."
