Zaire the gorilla, who turned 40 yesterday, was treated to a birthday cake made by Great British Bake Off runner-up Richard Burr.
The birthday girl looked like she was enjoying the treat in her enclosure at London Zoo.
The 2014 contestant, who won the 'star baker' title five times on the show, said it was a "tough challenge baking a cake for a gorilla".
"It's got grated carrot and parsnips, all sorts of things Zaire likes. I think i've managed to fit her daily diet into this cake," he said.
London Zoo has welcomed a new attraction - a six-month old kinkajou. Forrest, as he's been named, was hand-reared in Scotland but has now moved into the zoo in Regent's Park.
Kinkajous live in tropical rainforests and are omnivores. His new keepers are feeding him figs and peaches to make him feel at home.
Kinkajous drink nectar from plants which they extract using their long tongues. They also have long tails which they use to hang from trees.
The zoo has released a video explaining about Forrest:
