Fans of The Great British Bake Off were not OK tonight following Peter’s confession.
Tonight, Paul Hollywood and Prue Leith cranked up the pressure on the remaining contestants with three tricky challenges for dessert week.
The bakers had to create a miniature version of a classic cheesecake for the signature, followed by a technical that dates back to the 17th century and a show-stopping jelly art dessert cake featuring delicate sponge.

But as Peter was preparing for the cheesecake task, he made a shocking admission.
Explaining his lime and ginger cheesecake, Peter said: “You can’t trust a cheesecake, I have an aversion to cheese in general.”
Fans were devastated by his comments, with many taking to Twitter.
One said: “I’ve lost all respect for Peter for that cheese comment, so now Mark is my favourite.”
Jack tweeted: “Peter was one of my favourite bakers, but now he’s said he has ‘an aversion to cheese’ I consider him a sworn enemy.”
Joseph said: “Peter on The Great British Bake Off just broke my heart, he doesn’t like cheese!”
