Tonight he revealed he has found love and shared a video filmed in Morocco as he held hands with his partner.

The Scot posted happy moments from their holiday together in a reel on Instagram, accompanied by the track I Found You by Stephen Sanchez.

Peter, who won the 2020 series of Bake Off, beamed in the video and captioned his post: “Wanderlust | wun•der•lust (n.) a strong desire for or impulse to wonder or travel the world. 🌷💐🌹🌸

“Collect memories not things. You only live once, and when you do it right, once it enough. Live for the moments you can’t put into words. If not now, when?”

He was soon inundated with hundreds of messages from delighted loved ones.

Another fan said: “Happy for you Peter🌈”

And one more typed: “Congrats! 🌈🌈🌈”

Straight after Bake Off was over, Peter returned to continue his degree in Accounting and Finance at the University of Edinburgh.

He appeared on Good Morning America shortly after his win – live-streaming straight from his student flat.

He has had his recipes published in The Times Magazine, and has released a cook book.

How did Peter do on Bake Off 2020?

First impressions were glowing for Peter, who was crowned Star Baker in the first episode of the series – and the luck continued for Peter, who stormed through each round.

His showstopper with a face sculpted to look like Edinburgh Olympian Sir Chris Hoy impressed the judges in what proved to be one of the hardest showstopper challenges Bake Off has ever run.

Peter was named Star Baker for the second time in the semi-finals after impressing the judges.

He even won a Hollywood handshake in the signature bake for his elderflower babas.

He’s particularly strong on gluten-free baking as his older brother has an intolerance.

Peter made viewers chuckle after copying series three winner John Whaite’s technique of “listening” to his cakes to check if they’re cooked to perfection.

Peter also achieved the near-impossible, by winning two technical challenges in a row with his perfectly formed eclairs and matcha crêpe cake in Japanese week.

Although he had a few underwhelming performances – namely in bread week – Peter was a consistently good performer throughout the competition and won over viewers with his innocent and cheery personality.
