Hairy Bikers star Dave Myers reveals he is battling serious illness and undergoing chemo

HAIRY Bikers star Dave Myers has revealed he is undergoing chemo as he battles a series illness.

The 64-year-old revealed he had been unwell, but is "going to be fine" and "looks good bald" as he opened up about his condition for the first time while chatting to his co-star Si King.


Speaking on their podcast  The Hairy Bikers – Agony Uncles, he said: "I've got to come clean now, I haven't been too well recently and basically, I've got to have some chemo, you [Si King] know all this anyway.

"So this year is going to be a bit quiet for me, I'm not going to be filming, some of the festivals I'm not going to be able to go to, some may be OK, but this year's a bit of a write off for us.

"I have had to speak up about this because I don't want to hide under a rock, but I would love it if people respected my privacy and just let me get on with it and give Si and our team all the support they need. That would be great.

"But look, the prognosis is OK. I'm going to be fine."

Dave, who appeared on Strictly in 2013, continued: "I've just got to tuck in, look after myself, eat sensibly and get over this mess, flog books, and be a happy person so within that, that's where I am.

"I may be a baldy biker for a while so it's just a warning, I don't want to make a fuss about it, I look alright bald actually."

He added:"Under different circumstances I would embrace it more but I feel under these circumstances it's simply something I have to live with, get on with it, and crack on."
