Chef Donal knows the recipe for popstardom

CELEBRITY chef Donal Skehan wants to be a popstar again. He might spend his days whipping up souffles and flambeing crepe suzettes, but the well known chef still dreams of resurrecting his popstar heyday.

The young chef was part of pop band Industry, alongside model and Buck's Townhouse hostess Michele McGrath and Morgan Deane.

"I would love to do it again," he told The Diary.

"That experience was just so much fun. When we were in the band it was such a laugh.

"I still stay in touch with the girls."

But while Donal may fantasise about pop glory, his girlfriend and manager Sofie Larsson thinks he should stick to the saucepans and spatulas.

"I was watching the Big Reunion Tour and said I would love to do that.

"But Sofie said, 'But you have to have been successful to take part in that show'," he laughed.

Industry started out big, supporting the Pussycat Dolls and JLS, but their career fizzled out after a few months.
