Marco Pierre White to judge the cooking skills of celebrities including John Partridge, Alex James and Keith Duffy in competitive new show set at sea.

UKTV has commissioned its first advertiser-funded programme for Watch with the competitive new travelling cookery show, Battlechefs. The broadcaster is teaming up with P&O Cruises to bring the show to its flagship entertainment channel, following a series of successful branded-content partnerships for its other channels including Dave, Yesterday and Good Food.

The show follows ten amateur celebrity chefs including Alex James (Blur), Keith Duffy (Boyzone) and John Partridge (EastEnders) board a cruise ship and take it in turns to command the kitchen. Their talents will be judged by British celebrity chef and restaurateur Marco Pierre White.

Filmed across two separate Mediterranean cruises on newly-launched flagship Britannia, each voyage will be host to its own self-contained competition featuring five celebrities, who will each assume the role as Head Chef and prepare a meal for the Captain and his VIP guests. In each episode, we follow the untrained chefs as the ship sails from port to port and they discover charming and captivating stories about each location and the food that is grown and produced locally.

Using the cooking techniques they’ve learnt, they’ll each try to impress the Captain with their skills. Their competitors will help prepare the meal, but as they also get a chance to score each other, will they play tactically as they fight it out to become Battlechefs Champion?

“We are very excited to be making Battlechefs on Britannia. Watch provides an ideal audience to encourage newcomers to cruising and will showcase our food ethos. Our cookery school on board provides the perfect set for the show as the celebrities prepare the speciality dishes from around the Med.” – Edgington from P&O Cruises

Battlechefs will air on Watch in 2016.

Keith has become co-owner of Irish tyre sales and car accessories business Tyreland.

Founded by Garrett Haughey, the company began trading seven years ago and given the economic conditions has concentrated since then on offering value for money while maintaining excellent customer care.

This business model has resulted in steady growth - Tyreland now has now five Dublin depots and a sixth in Co Meath.

Already employing over 20 staff, it plans to further expand through the course of the year and is actively looking for suitable premises across the country.

Initially the company focused only on tyre sales. Today it can offer customers the latest in wheel alignment technology, minor mechanical works, brake pads and disc replacement and a range of batteries, wiper blades and bulbs.

A self-confessed ‘petrol head’, Keith has always been interested in anything car related and he believes that now is the perfect time for him to be directly involved in the industry.

Tyreland had approached Keith around eight months ago regarding becoming an ambassador for the company. While Keith wasn’t interested in this, it started discussions which ended up with him investing in and becoming a co-owner in Tyreland.

"I love the Tyreland concept. You only have to listen to customer feedback to know that it works - people want value for money and a great service - and if they get it they tell others. It’s no surprise then that the company experiences a high level of referral and repeat business,” he said.

Boyzone star, Keith Duffy today announced that he is stepping down as patron of Irish Autism Action to concentrate on his family and career. Keith has been actively fundraising and building awareness of children with autism for over ten years and in that time he has helped Irish Autism Action raise over €8,000,000 which contributed significantly to the creation and development of services for children with autism and their families.

Keith’s role as Patron of Irish Autism Action has cemented corporate partnership down through the years such as O2, Mace, DHL and Dublin Airport Authority. His own personal fundraising initiatives such as KD golf day and KD Masquerade Ball have generated hundreds of thousands for Irish Autism Action. Keith’s endorsement of IAA’s phones for iPads campaign has secured 3,000 iPads for children with autism involving recycling of nearly half a million phones. His public support for 12 early intervention schools in Ireland helped secure state recognition for the schools. Finally, Keith has launched a partnership between Early Childhood Ireland and IAA which over a 3 year period will help create autism friendly pre-school settings.

CEO of Irish Autism Action Kevin Whelan commented on the announcement saying; “There has been a considerable amount of advantages to having Keith on board with Irish Autism Action but it is impossible to sum up the extent of his work in such little words. On behalf of Irish Autism Action, I would like to thank Keith from the very bottom of all our hearts and wish him the very best in the future, without his stellar campaigning for IAA, we would not be in the place we are today”.

“Our belief is that awareness drives understanding which in turn drives action. Keith has been key in creating the awareness through his extensive, very personal interviews relating to his family’s journey with autism”.

Keith has worked with Irish Autism Action by raising much needed funds through various charity soccer matches, the Keith Duffy Ball, Ironman 70.3, Keith Duffy 5k in Phoenix Park, Tour De Force Cycle, Connemarathon, Keith Duffy Masquerade Ball, Blue Nose Day and other successful fundraising events.

Despite stepping down, Keith has promised he will see through a number of events that he has set up for Irish Autism Action for 2015, including National Pyjama Day on 6th March which is set to raise significant funds for IAA over the next three years.
