Bake Off: Where is 2020 winner Peter Sawkins now?

Great British Bake Off returns to screens tonight almost a year after Peter Sawkins was crowned winner of the 2020 series. 

Noel Fielding and Matt Lucas will return to host the 2021 GBBO series, which begins on Channel 4 tonight, with judges Prue Leith and Paul Hollywood back for another slice of the cake.

It will see another 12 contestants each compete for the trophy, a feeling which reigning champion Peter knows all too well.

Where is Peter Sawkins now? 

Peter, then 20, became the youngest winner in Bake Off history last November after beating Dave Friday and Laura Adlington to the title. The finance student, now 21, first got into baking gluten-free treats because his older brother has an intolerance.

He watched the Bake Off final with his flatmates – who had no idea he’d won until it was announced on screen.

‘I can’t quite believe that I am here, I can’t quite believe that I made it on to the show, and I can’t quite believe that the show happened,’ Peter said in his adorable victory speech.

‘I wanted this a lot. When I was 12, I was watching repeats of Bake Off back-to-back, and it got me into baking big time.’

Following his crowning glory, Peter returned to his studies and is currently believed to be completing his accounting and finance degree at the University of Edinburgh.

However, Peter is still enjoying his time in the spotlight as he is set to release his first cookbook this October, called Peter Bakes. It’s expected to include traditional Scottish recipes as well as twists on classic favourites.

He told Bookseller: ‘I am so excited to share my passion for baking in this book. I want readers to find the fresh ideas inspiring and the classic techniques valuable.

‘I really hope the book proves to be enjoyable and useful, and that everyone’s copies at home will be well-thumbed and splattered with cake batter in the years to come.’

Peter Bakes is set for release in October.
