Mary Berry is reportedly embroiled in a bitter feud with former Great British Bake Off judge Paul Hollywood over the treatment of his ex-wife, Alexandra Hollywood.
Tensions are said to have 'boiled over' at the Good Food Show in Birmingham between the pair, where they were both doing cookery demonstrations.
Baking legend Mary is said to have 'snubbed' Paul's new girlfriend, Summer Monteys Fullam who was also there, and wouldn't pose for any pictures with her former Bake Off co-star.
Official BBC Good Food event pictures posted to Instagram didn't show Mary or Paul together either.
Last year, they fronted the cookery demonstrations together at the event.
But Mary 'refused' to be on the same stage at the cooking show this time around, and apparently said: "He is always working an angle," although the context of her comments aren't quite clear.
An insider at the event told The Sun: "You could cut the tension with a knife."
According to reports, Mary is close to Paul's ex-wife Alexandra, and was "disappointed" when the GBBO judge moved to Channel 4 without her as she "felt showed a lack of character".
"Mary is a class act so was polite but she gave Summer an icy stare and refused to speak to her," the insider continued. "The girlfriend said something and then gave Mary a really dirty look."
And when Paul suggested that Mary joined him on stage, she "forcefully" declined.
The source added: "Paul seemed desperate to be seen with Mary and to heal the rift but she just spoke to him briefly and moved. Something has really changed."
Paul and Alexandra, who share a son together, split last year after 20 years of marriage.
He has since sparked up a relationship with 23-year-old Summer, with reports suggesting that the two met in a pub in Ickam, Kent.
The pair reportedly first met when Paul arranged a birthday party for Alexandra at the pub, although both have always insisted there was no overlap between the two relationships.
