What happened on The Great British Bake Off with student Peter?

Peter, a 20-year-old student, did well in the first task and came first in the Technical Challenge, while he similarly received praise for his Showstopper.

For his Signature Bake, creating his own spin on the classic Cornish Pasty, Peter made kedgeree pasties shaped like fish. Judge Paul Hollywood said they looked “fantastic” but were somewhat dry. Prue agreed.

However, he won the Technical Challenge, in which they whipped up some raspberry and caramel eclairs.

And for the Showstopper, the student made an impressive blackberry and lemon tart.

It was enough to keep him in the competition, as GBBO’s Linda left the show.
