Great British Bake Off's Peter posts sweet throwback snap ahead of 80s week


Peter Sawkins will be seen trying his hand at 1980s cuisine tonight – despite not being born until 2000.

The Great British Bake Off’s youngest ever contestant has shared his delight at making it to the latest themed week by sharing a sweet throwback snap.

The Edinburgh baking supremo posted the image, featuring him and big brother Andrew when they were youngsters, to Instagram this afternoon.




Peter, 20,  said: “This kid born in 2000 has made it to 80s week.”

As we’ve previously reported, Peter has proved to be one of this year’s most popular participants, with a host of people praising his kind nature and impressive skills every week on social media.

And the student has demonstrated his super close relationship with his older sibling already, when he made him a graduation cake as his showstopper during chocolate week.

Peter has been used his Scottish roots to whip up some special creations including a multigrain ‘Edinburgh skyline’ with an egg-washed red Forth Rail Bridge for Bread Week.

This week’s episode of Bake Off sees the remaining contestants battle 80s week, following Mark Lutton’s departure last Tuesday.

Mark struggled to wow the judges with his burger-style steamed buns for Japanese week, while he landed in fifth place in the technical challenge.

The showstopper challenge, in which bakers were tasked with making a kawaii ‘cute’ creation, proved to be the final straw for the Northern Irish baker, 27, with his Avocado themed creation branded ‘inedible’ by judge Paul Hollywood.

Speaking after his exit, an emotional Mark said: ‘When you know, you know. I thought it was my time tonight.”

Elsewhere on the show Lottie was crowned star baker for the first time thanks to her exceptional toad stall showstopper.

The tension on the baking show will increase this week as the bakers will battle it out to gain a place in the quarter finals. 

The Great British Bake Off continues on Tuesday at 8pm on Channel 4.
