He's been dating his gorgeous Swedish girlfriend for the past seven years.

But with a new book coming out, another series of Kitchen Hero in the oven, and plenty of pots on the boil, Donal Skehan says he's in no hurry to race down the aisle.

"We've definitely talked about it but I don't think now is the time," he told the Herald at the launch of O2's Think Big Survey.

"I'm a bit nervous about it. I'm 26, so that's quite young. Closer to 30, I'll start thinking about marriage."

Donal met girlfriend Sofie Larsson at a house party in 2006 and the two have spent the last few years dating and building their cookery empire.

Loved-up Donal even credits Sofie with being the business brains behind Brand Skehan.

"We're just about to launch a magazine called Feast so we're both focusing on that.

"We have a very balanced relationship. We work and live together, so I can't imagine being married would be that different. Although she might disagree."
