Model and television presenter Donna Air seems to be setting her sights on a TV cookery programme.
Air (pictured – source) is evidently undeterred by the so-so success that another model experienced in the last couple of years. Sophie Dahl received mixed reviews for her own cookery programme that was broadcast on BBC2 in 2010.
Air, a former presenter of The Big Breakfast, says she’d be interested in doing something related to cooking for children. As reported in the Daily Telegraph she says:
“I’m a mother, so I cook a lot out of necessity as well, so it would be good to do a book or show about how to feed children fast. I’m a bit of a whizz at doing everything quickly, as I’m a mummy in a hurry, so I’m always cooking.”
One former model who is enjoying success as a TV chef is Lorraine Pascale. Ms Pascale has presented a handful of her baking and cookery programmes on BBC2, runs a successful cake shop in London and her books have reached the top of the best sellers charts. Pascale is rumoured to in pole position to replace Jamie Oliver as the famous-chef face of Sainsbury’s.
