Paul, 53, who is dating 24-year-old barmaid Summer Monteys-Fullam, faces a £5million payout to Alex after their acrimonious split in 2017.

Alex, 54, who has an 18-year-old son with the TV judge, told London’s High Court she had not spilled details about his financial worth. They include a story in the Sun on Sunday that revealed his companies raked in £9.1million last year.

Adam Wolanski QC, for Mr Hollywood, said: “We do not know whether these leaks came from the wife.

“But we are very anxious about leaks and making sure that nothing is reported wrongly.

“We don’t want sensitive information to be ‘laundered’ into the public domain.” Mr Hollywood’s lawyers said he “accepts” much of his financial information is publicly available via Companies House — the government’s business register.

Alexander Chandler, representing Alex, said: “She wants to make it absolutely clear that she was not the source of the story in the Sun on Sunday.”

The full trial is due to start on July 22. Judge Martin O’Dwyer has banned reporting of any financial information that emerges during the hearing.
