The Hairy Bikers are a British institution and need to be protected at all costs. The news that Si and Dave are back for a new series has us here in the office buzzing.
Myers 65 and King 56 will be back for a new BBC show The Hairy Bikers Go West, which sees the pair take a trip down the west coast.
The eight-part series was announced at the Wales Screen Summit for BBC2 and iPlayer and says it aims to celebrate ‘the amazing food producers, cuisine and vista of Britain’s West Shores’.
Announcing the show, the BBC said: “The Hairy Bikers Go West celebrates the amazing food producers, cuisine and vista of Britain’s west shores.
“This eight-part series for BBC Two and iPlayer sees the return of best friends Si and Dave in a celebration of enduring friendship, foodies’ passion and the people of this part of the world. They will travel from north to south discovering the producers, farmers and chefs that are contributing to a modern British culinary revolution.
“Each week they’ll ride across one stunning part of the west coast and explore the changing area through restaurants, recipes, producers and inventive new food entrepreneurs.
The Hairy Bikers’ journey will begin in Scotland and wind its way all the way down to Devon visiting places that are meaningful along the way.
Dave Myers made his first TV appearance last month, appearing on This Morning’s lunchtime segment on Wednesday 26th April Dave delighted fans with one of his first TV appearances.
He looked in great spirits as he and Si prepared a summer kofta recipe for Phillip and Holly. During the episode, Philip asked about his health.
Dave replied: “I’m doing very well and it’s so nice to be back, Phil. It’s a work in progress and I’ve got my hair back and doing well.”
On the How To Be 60 podcast, he said: “I do feel I’m getting better, in terms of mobility and physiotherapy. The cancer, I really have no symptoms of it, it’s the chemotherapy.
“It’s neuropathy in your feet. They sit me on a Pilates ball and rock me, pretending I’m on a motorbike. They’re good people, they’re determined to get me back on the bike.”
We arent’t sure of a release date just yet, but we will be sure to report when we have one. Hopefully, they might just sneak a visit to Yorkshire.
