Paul Hollywood's brother-in-law Simon Moores has been killed in a plane crash in Spain.

Westgate pilot and former Conservative councillor Simon Moores had died in an aircraft crash in Spain. On the morning of the crash he appeared to suggest they had changed their original planned flight route, tweeting: "Dawn's early light - apparently Biarritz make it very hard to refuel so go to San Sebastian instead".

The former Thanet district councillor died flying a Piper Arrow III from the Portuguese town of Cascais to San Sebastian after it crashed into Mount Hernio around 2pm.

The day before the crash Mr Moores tweets a photos of the aircraft, writing "Looking good".

The couple had split in in 2017 following a 20-year marriage. "Our focus continues to be the happiness of our son during this very hard time". She and Paul split for the first time in 2013 after the chef had an affair with his American Baking Competition co-star Marcela Valladolid.

Last year he criticised his brother-in-law's new relationship with a barmaid 30 years his junior.

"I am sure it will all end in tears", he is reported to have said in April.

Summer credited boyfriend Paul for with turning her "from a girl, to a woman", in a post shared on her Instagram account.
