Are all Paul Hollywood recipes crap?

I'm an experienced baker. I don't have problems following a recipe and don't usually struggle to get good results but every Paul Hollywood recipe I've tried is utter rubbish. I don't know why I keep doing it to myself! Today I thought I'd try his ginger bread recipe to make a gingerbread house and the result was a mixture with the consistency of a cake mix. I had to add loads more flour to get it anyway near the right consistency. I've had problems with every one of his recipes I've tried before. Am I just really unlucky or are his recipes actually rubbish? I'm not the biggest fan of his anyway and the fact that his recipes turn out badly just adds to my dislike of him! Has anyone else experienced this?

I've only tried his recipe for deep filled mince pies. They're lovely.

I've used a couple of his. One worked well, the other tastes nice but find I do need to tweak (cooking time mainly).
