Peter Crowned Winner Of The Great British Bake Off 2020

The proof is in the pudding! Peter has taken the Great British Bake Off trophy for season 11.

The 20-year-old student beat Dave and Laura in the closely fought contest, with the final challenge seeing the bakers tasked with a set-custard signature, a tricky chocolate and nut technical and a dessert tower showstopper.

The latest season saw Matt Lucas join the tent of dreams, after beloved host Sandi Toskvig decided to step down from the programme after three years at the helm.

This year's Bake Off was pre-recorded in a record six-weeks after the ongoing coronavirus crisis saw production on a number of series halted or cancelled.

Bake Off managed to continue to film by making the cast, presenters and crew film together as part of a Covid-secure bubble.

It's been one of the most popular series of Bake Off so far, with over 10 million viewers tuning in each week to see what each baker is serving up.

However, this series has not been without its controversy, with many fans left stunned when Hermine was eliminated from the tent in semi-finals week.

Many believed that Laura, who fell down in the Patisserie Week technical, should have been given the book ahead of the final - and took to Twitter to register their disappointment.

However, some comments had a negative effect on Laura, who took to her own social media page to hit out at trolls.

"It's okay to be sad your favourite person didn't go through, but please remember it's not my fault," she said. "I don't make the decisions. GBBO is all about kindness and I haven't seen much of that on here.

"It's easy to sit there on your sofa and judge. But I am a real person with feelings.

"Please take a moment to consider your words before you judge someone you've never met and whose food you've never tasted."

Applications are now open for season 12 of Bake Off - here's everything you need to know.
