Donal Skehan previously revealed that he was thinking about moving to America to chase work, but now it’s officially happening.

The Howth native and his wife Sofie are packing up and moving to LA early next year.

Speaking to the RTE Guide, Donal said, “Right now we are doing as much as we can do in Ireland but the opportunities are there in the US.

“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.”

The couple previously spent a couple of weeks in America back in March, but despite having a number of close pals living there now, wouldn’t want to make the move permanent.

“In my head, it’s no tan indefinite move to the States. But this will be our sixth Irish TV series and it’s my fifth cookbook, so it’s the time to try something new. It’s exciting for us, that moment of ‘what next?’ which is where we are right now,” he said.

Donal continued, “It’s a really scary place, it’s an exciting place and it’s full of possibilities. Even thinking about it gives me goosebumps. the TV side of things will always be hard to crack in America, but those 250,000 people who subscribe to my Youtube channel are based in the US.”

The Irish foodie has his own Youtube channel, but also signed to Jamie Oliver’s account last year which gave a huge boost to his global repertoire.
