**Warning: Contains discussion about cancer and cancer treatment**
The Hairy Bikers star Si King has given fans an update about the duo’s series latest series amid Dave Myers’ cancer diagnosis.
Go Local wrapped up last Sunday (29 January) after eight episodes aired on BBC, which followed the beloved presenters as they continued their adventures in Northumberland while on the hunt for new, local food.
Fans were left gutted and desperate for more adventures with the pair.
However, King has confirmed that the series has now ended and it won’t be coming back to schedules.
He said: "Sadly, the series has come to an end. We hope you enjoyed the series and the journey we went through with each episode, we look forward to seeing you on your telly sometimes soon
"Be sure to catch all of the episodes from GO LOCAL on iPlayer! All recipes can be found on the @bbcgoodfood website. Love Si and Dave."
But now, King has given fans something else to look forward to by announcing his next solo project which will launch later this year.
The television presenter and chef will part of the line up in this year’s Pub in the Park event, which will take place in Leamington Spa and Tunbridge Wells this summer before making its way down to London.
“EXCITING NEWS,” he declared in an Instagram caption.
“I’m heading to @pubinthepark Leamington Spa and Tunbridge Wells in July, then Chiswick in September. Find me at the Saturday sessions at these locations! See you there? Head to the Pub in the Park website to sign up for early pre-sale access on 3rd Feb!”
Pub in the Park was created by celebrity chef Tom Kerridge as a way to celebrate all the wonderful things about pubs while enjoying the summer weather outdoors.
It will visit a bunch of locations across the UK, but Hairy Bikers fans have a choice of the three which are mentioned above to see one half of their favourite TV duo.
Myers, 65, was diagnosed with cancer and last month he opened up about how the diagnosis has impacted his life, filming the Hairy Bikers and how, ultimately he's 'learn[ing] to live with' the condition.
He explained: "[The treatment] is still ongoing but I'm kinda doing all right, it's like many people, it's something one learns to live with.
Myers, who has been receiving treatment for cancer since April 2022, added: "It is still ongoing but I am kind of doing alright and you know, it’s like many people, it is something that one learns to live with. But I’m delighted my hair... it’s thicker hair than before I had the chemo."
