A SCOTTISH student is part of the newly released line-up for the upcoming series of The Great British Bake Off.

The series will begin next week, with 12 amateur bakers vying for sweet success in the iconic tent. Production of the show was initially delayed as a result of coronavirus, but filming finished near the end of August.

Accounting and finance student Peter, 20, who was born in Edinburgh, was inspired by Bake Off to start cooking for himself. As well as having represented his country at badminton, he has been baking since he was 12 and has seen every series of the programme.

The new series will begin on Channel 4 on September 22.
