She said: "He’s in for quite a ride. It is such a bizarre experience because there is a naivety to filming something like that because you are so immersed and focused on baking you forget that there are millions of people watching you."

The TV personality, who has gone on to have amazing success following the show, adding: "You walk out and you think, ‘How do they know me?’ But he will love it. It’s great."

Peter opened up about his win to BBC Radio's Good Morning Scotland: "There is something very nice that I can finally stop keeping the secret and share it with friends and family. It's an absolute dream - I was really pleased with how I managed to step through all the challenges.

"I feel in a really privileged position because of course there will be some opportunities that arise from this, and it would be amazing to try and explore them, but at the same time I am going to keep on going with my degree, so I'm in a nice position."
