Keith Duffy is making a major career move, swapping his time on stage with Boyzone for a stint on the seven seas.
The singer will be heading out on the open oceans to take part in a new TV show which will follow a number of celebrity chefs on a cruise ship in Mediterranean.
Keith will be competing alongside the likes of Blur’s Alex James for the winning title on Battlechefs.
Explaining the show, Keith told The Herald, “We’ll be cooking for the captain. Marco Pierre White gives you a dig out and after a week the captain chooses what celebrity cooks the best food.”
He added,“It’s just a bit of craic to be honest. I enjoy cooking. I do enjoy being in the kitchen, cooking, so I will be looking at different dishes that are local to the area that we are travelling to.”
Unfortunately for the captain – and anyone else on board – Keith’s not one for following recipes, so who knows what he’ll serve up!
“I’m not one to look at a cookbook and learn recipes. I’d rather just use what’s in the cupboards and in the fridge and throw a few bits and pieces together,” he admitted.
It’ll certainly be interesting viewing!
