Speaking to Evoke.ie, the Howth native said, “We’ve a show starting with Food Network UK, so there might be some inklings over in the US too.

Donal continued, “Ireland is not using it as much like the US or UK. We’ve done some amazing things in Ireland and now it’s time to bring that to a wider audience.

“My uncle lives there too, so hopefully it won’t be too lonely when we get there.”

The Dubliner previously revealed to the RTE Guide that their initial plan is to stay there for one year, but they’ll see how things go.

“Sofie and I are still young and don’t have children yet so we see it as the time to go. We will spend a year there and see what happens.”
