Celebrity chef Donal Skehan believes his unique brand of pigeon 'Swinglish' is the key to his success on Scandinavian TV.

The bestselling author currently presents a daily slot on popular Swedish breakfast show 'Mitt Kök' despite having a poor grasp of the country's mother tongue.

"I speak a hybrid language called 'Swinglish'," he told the Irish Independent.

"I think the audience find it endearing that I'm making the effort but not getting it right at all."

Despite all the international TV work, Skehan has still found the time to follow his parents into the family business to launch a new range of hearty 'SKOFF Pies'.

Skehan's parents Dermot and Liz Skehan own Irish food company 'Fresh Cut Foods' and have been keen to develop a food range with their son for some time.

"It's our first time working together which was surprisingly fun," he said. "All my family are into food; my granddad ran a shop on Dorset Street. So it's really nice to get to work on something like this together."

Donal Skehan's range of SKOFF Pies are on sale at selected store nationwide.
