Watch: Donal Skehan shows off his Swedish on morning TV

Celebrity chef Donal Skehan shows us he's not just an expert in the kitchen, but his ability to pick up a language is pretty good too.

In the above video, which he posted to his Twitter account this morning, the Mr Skehan cooks up some buffalo chicken.

Mr Skehan told that he hasn't quite mastered the language yet.

" I have enough Swedish to get me by and to do the television slot and to keep the conversation going," he said.

Earlier this year, he called his version of the language "Swinglish".

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

My books have been translated over there, so one of the big Swedish stars took on the book and published it nearly two years ago. When the book came out I did a lot of appearances. It's been a bit of a whirlwind."

The recently-engaged television presenter, who appears on the Swedish TV every Saturday morning, also said he was offered both the Swedish version of Strictly Come Dancing and The Crystal Maze, but said he won't be taking the roles, but is grateful to have been asked.

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