Was this grown from seed Paul? Looks like it is indeed secondary growth and it will split into two in time. If grown from replanted bulbs shallots have usually split naturally by now unless you planted late. If grown from seed usually you only get one shallot but I have heard of this happening someetimes with shallots grown from seed. Probably something to do with the extremes of weather we've been getting.
