Pilot: Simon Moores died in the crash

PAUL HOLLYWOOD’s former brother-in-law has been killed in a plane crash in northern Spain.

Simon Moores’ light aircraft came down in thick fog on Mt Hernio in the Basque country.

Mr Moores, 62, was the brother of The Great British Bake Off star’s former wife Alex, 54.

The father-of-two, from Westgate-on-Sea, Kent, had publicly spoken out against the TV baker, 52, and his new relationship with a barmaid 30 years his junior.

‘I am sure it will all end in tears,’ he said last year.

Mr Moores died while he was flying a Piper Arrow III from the Portuguese town of Cascais to San Sebastian.

A second British pilot who was also killed in the tragedy has not yet been named.
