Move over Jamie Oliver - Kian Egan reveals he wants his own cookery show

WESTLIFE'S Kian Egan has revealed he would love the opportunity to host his own cookery TV show.
The singer - who lives with his former Hollyoaks star wife Jodi Albert and one-year-old son Koa - has been doing a lot of TV presenting since Westlife split and would love to combine his new career with his love of cooking.
Kian revealed: "I've always been the chef in our house, it's something I really enjoy doing. I love the satisfaction of cooking a nice meal for people.
"I've talked about a food show to quite a few people - any kind of food show that comes up I'd love to be a part of it.
"I'm experimental, I get out my cook books and learn bits and pieces here and there, and then I won't look at a cook book for six months and I'll be putting the ingredients that I've learned about together. My weekly shop starts to expand and get a bit more exotic, rather than just the bog standard things I used to cook a few years ago."
Kian, who returns shortly on the 'Voice of Ireland' judging panel, has already ruled out a solo singing career, following the break up of Westlife earlier this summer.
"I think the idea of going solo is a huge amount of pressure to get it all right, and coming out of a band that's been so successful, I think it's going to be a huge pressure for any of us to try and release solo music and make it as big and successful," the Sligo based star has said.
His friend and former band member Nicky Byrne, has also expressed an interest in getting into TV work - and recently competed in the BBC's Strictly Come Dancing, as well as taking part in the Christmas Day RTE special 'The School Around the Corner' with Ray D'Arcy.
