PETER Sawkins has won the dual honour of becoming the first Great British Bake Off winner from Scotland as well as the youngest.

A self-confessed Bake Off superfan, the 20-year-old claims to have repeat watched all 10 previous series of the show.

Sawkins – dubbed the “baby-faced assassin” by host Noel Fielding – studies accounting and finance at The University of Edinburgh.

On the programme, Sawkins honoured his homeland in his cooking, using Scottish ingredients including berries, whisky, oats and honey.

He first applied to compete on Bake Off in 2018 and was finally selected for the 11th series, which was filmed in a “bubble” in Down Hall Hotel near Bishop’s Stortford in Hertfordshire.

Earlier in the series, he delivered a series of polished bakes, was named star baker and earned himself the nickname “Perfect Peter”.

His success prompted judge Paul Hollywood to tell him “Welcome back to the tent,” and offer a coveted Hollywood handshake.

Sawkins is a keen badminton player and is president of Edinburgh University Badminton Club.

This passion was reflected in his showstopper challenge during Japanese week, when he created a cartoon character-like cake called Dizzy The Shuttlecock.
