Donal Skehan and wife Sofie set to star in new TV show in the US together


Donal Skehan and his wife Sofie are set to star in a new US TV show together.

The chef is no stranger to the cameras as he’s hosted plenty of cookery programmes before, however, his Swedish other half is usually used to working behind the scenes as his business manager.

But now, that’s all set to change as the couple, who wed last year, have filmed a pilot for the Food Network in the US as a duo – and Donal admitted that he’s amazed by the interest in them as a couple, especially since they got married.


“Sofie was great. She has been behind the camera for so long watching me do this and watching me learn, when it came to her turn she knew exactly what she was doing,” Donal told the Irish Sun.

“We’ll see what happens after it airs as they’ll make a decision then so you just have to keep your head down and keep working.

“A lot of what we do is based on food and lifestyle, and we’ve been amazed in the interest in us, especially since we got married. I suppose it’s all part and parcel of what we are,” he said.

The show, which is set to air in January, is Donal’s latest gig after previously landing a co-host role alongside Tia Mowry on Food Network’s Star Kids.
