    Bloody hell that got me



    Dave Myers: The Hairy Bikers star, who had cancer, dies at 66



    Dave Myers, one half of TV cooking duo The Hairy Bikers, has died at the age of 66, two years after revealing he had been diagnosed with cancer.

    Myers, from Barrow-in-Furness, found fame alongside Si King 20 years ago.

    The bearded pair were known for travelling around the UK and the world on their motorbikes, sampling and cooking food from different regions.

    King said he "will miss him every day and the bond and friendship we shared over half a lifetime".

    Others paying tribute included fellow celebrity chef James Martin, who called him "a very special man".

    In a post on X on Thursday, King wrote: "I'm afraid I bear some sad news. Most of you will know Dave has been fighting cancer for the past couple of years.

    "Last night, on 28th February 2024, with Lili, Dave's wife, his family, close friend David and myself by his side, he passed away peacefully at home. All who knew Dave are devastated at his passing. His beloved wife brought him such happiness as did her children, Iza and Sergiu who Dave loved like his own.

    "Personally, I am not sure I can put into words on how I feel at the moment. My best friend is on a journey that for now, I can't follow.

    "I will miss him every day and the bond and friendship we shared over half a lifetime. I wish you God's speed brother; you are and will remain a beacon in this world. See you on the other side. Love ya."

    King continued: "I know Dave and his family would want me to thank all of you who sent messages of support in recent times. It meant the world to him, his family and all The Hairy Bikers team. I am sending you all much love and gratitude for those simple acts of kindness, generosity and spirit. We are eternally grateful for them.

    "May I ask you all for one further kindness and allow Lili, his wife, his family, close friends and I some time and some peace to process our huge loss. I am sure I will see you all soon."

    Last thing i remember reading towards the end of 2023, was that his cancer was in remission. Cruel.

    So very sad. Had the pleasure of meeting Dave (& Si) a couple of times. Two of the nicest guys I ever met and so enthusiastic about food (and bikes). Enjoyed their TV programmes too - despite me rarely cooking anything more complicated than toast! RIP Dave - you will be missed.

    I really enjoyed watching the Hairy Bikers. Both seemed very grounded and a pair you would genuinely enjoy a pint with down the pub.

    Loved the Route 66 Series.

    Ride on in peace Dave

    Just heard about Martin this morning, he has been my accountant for about 6 years, bloody shame as his wife got cancer and died about 2 years ago, he had a disabled daughter who he looked after and was in the process of selling his family home and doing up a bungalow near Fair Maid, I was going to quote for it in November but it was a bigger job than I thought so turned it down.
    Always loved to talk about City, as you say mates with Ash and also David Meyler, be a big turnout at the funeral I would imagine, Only started his pension last year as well, bloody typical.
