Hairy Bikers star Dave Myers issues emotional life update following cancer battle

Hairy Bikers' Dave Myers has provided us with a cancer update.

Hairy Bikers star Dave Myers has issued a heartwarming life update following his battle with cancer.

The 66-year-old TV chef previously revealed that his treatment for the unspecified type of cancer began in May 2022.

Myers briefly took a break from filming the latest of the BBC Two series, which sees him travel west across Britain from Scotland to Devon with his co-presenter, Simon 'Si' King.

King said: “It’s a series that we will always remember, not that we won’t remember others.

“We are very privileged to do what we do and I think this one was particularly special in general because of Dave’s health and his sheer and utter determination and love for what he does.

“Especially to continue to do it while he was having treatment took remarkable courage and energy – and adds to why Dave and I will not forget it.”

During the most recent episode of The Hairy Bikers Go West, Myers went and explored the Lancashire area alongside King.

Providing us with a positive update, the TV star gave an emotional admission: "It’s been glorious.

"The motorcycling's been glorious.

"What can I say?

"It feels so good to be alive."

King also said he was delighted to be back with his 'best mate'.

The County Durham-born co-presenter previously said there was a 'lovely moment on the first day of filming where Dave overtook me on the road on the bikes, just like old times'.

He added: “Over the comms he was going ‘Kingy, are you sure we’re going left here?’

"That sort of dialogue was great and it’s what we’ve done over the last 20 years. It was really quite emotional.”

Through the seven-part series, King and Myers cover more than 600 miles and also stop in Merseyside, North Wales and Bristol.

These visits inspired them to cook up Chicken Balmoral with truffle mash and a poached lobster served with Scottish Bucatini pasta, Lamb chop pakoras with traditional Persian rice and a Lancashire Butter and Potato Pie.

Last December, Myers gave fans an update on his health during Hairy Bikers: Coming Home For Christmas.

The Hairy Bikers legend said he had feared he wouldn't make it to Christmas.

He explained: "I don’t go on about it too much, but with most Christmas specials you have to cook for somebody, but this was kind of like the Hairy Bikers best ever Christmas. Because it was the Christmas I never thought I’d be here for.

"I sincerely appreciate every ounce of affection, every bite of food and good friendship - it was magic.

"It has been one of the best days of my life. To sit there with [wife] Lil to look down at people, it's special you know? I want more now. I'll get back on it. I've still got something left in me!"
