Television presenter Andrew O’Keefe reveals he spent 14 hours in a Cuban jail

A recent family holiday to Cuba took a turn for the worst for Weekend Sunrise co-host Andrew O’Keefe.

The 43-year-old revealed to New Idea he was forced to spend 14 hours in jail in the small town of Nueva Paz after his family was involved in a car accident.

‘Unfortunately, we ran into a government minister and his flunkies – which meant no matter how much I argued, it was all our fault!’


the father of three, who is a former solicitor, eventually managed to persuade police to let him go.

‘In the end, I managed to persuade the police that I wasn’t a flight risk,” he told the magazine.
