The 58-year-old former detective, who captured stars including Chris Hughes, Kem Cetinay, Kay Burley and Vicky Pattison, is leaving after six series.
Peter, who was known as The Chief, said he was bowing out after managing to catch every last one of the fugitives on the civilian version of the show.
Peter wrote: "Finally after six challenging series, we achieved our long held ambition for a clean sweep. What an unforgettable day that was!
"I feel it would be impossible for me to top that achievement so now is the right time for me to move on."
The star concluded by thanking fans for "putting a smile on his face" during his time on the show.
However, viewers last night claimed it was "impossible" for this series' fugitives to get away – and suggested the show was 'fixed'.
One tweeted: “Invested 6 hours of my life on this year’s #Hunted for a security guard to give away the extraction location and make it impossible for anyone to win.”
Another said: "Isn't it cheating if you literally just sit at the extraction point… like what are the contestants supposed to do?
"Have a massive game of tag on the roof whilst the helicopter lands?”
Viewers were devastated to be losing the ferocious star, who made a name for himself on the show by stomping around in a loosened tie while barking orders at his team.
One asked him: "So are you tempted to do the celebrity one? Show us all how it's done?
"I wonder if the team would be too scared to hunt you, or if they would throw everything they have into finding you fast?"
He tweeted back: "Let’s see if @Hunted_HQ ask me…! The hunters wouldn’t stand a chance."
He added: "Could you imagine the hunters faces?! They’d never catch me by the way!"
We can well believe that.
Peter was an undercover drugs officer in London's Metropolitan Police during the 80s – which he has described as a "shaggers' paradise".
He told the Star: “When there’s lots of very attractive people around, what are you going to do?
“In the decade I worked undercover, I slept with at least a couple of hundred people.”
