Hairy Bikers Dave Myers praises co-star Si King for support during cancer battle

Hairy Bikers star Dave Myers has praised his mate and co-star Si King for his support during his cancer treatment.

The 66-year-old telly chef said his pal Si cooked him his favourite comfort food, mince and dumplings, when he was feeling unwell. Myers, who shared his diagnosis in May 2022, told BBC Breakfast: "There was one day when I was poorly and he came round to our house and made me mince and dumplings, but he does it properly."

"You know, when the bottom of the dumplings are just soft, the top of the dumplings are crusty, and I really… I remember that with mashed potato. That was lovely." There was a freezer full and that was great."

When asked about his current health status, Myers said: "I'm doing all right. I'm still having treatment but everything seems stable."

"I've been back with my best mate on the bike, filming and doing the books and back to work." So it's all pretty good, actually. I'm really enjoying life at the moment."

Reflecting on their long-standing friendship, King said: "It just comes naturally to us. We're good mates, we're part of each other's families." It's just the way we are and we don't really have to try very hard, because we like each other."

"We're very different people but that's what friendship is about because constantly you bring something new to the table when we see each other."

Dave confirmed his diagnosis in May 2022 and dealt with multiple chemotherapy since. Earlier this year, he was able to return to TV work and continue his career with his co-star.

Speaking of his health battle, Dave previously said: "It’s been hard but I’m not the only one and I’m getting through it and I’m back at work. I’ve had to learn to walk again and ride my bike again, and to get on my bike again with Kingy in the sunshine brought tears to both our eyes.

Fans have since shared their love and support for them both after becoming regular posters online again – and Dave is regularly sent well-wishes.
