While Hairy Biker Dave Myers battles cancer, his partner Si King has vowed never to do a Hairy Bikers show without him.
Si, 55, has said there are “no Hairy Bikers without Dave” after his best friend’s cancer diagnosis.
Dave is currently undergoing treatment for the disease and has lost his iconic hair.
In show of support, Si has banned the filming of their cooking show until his friend is healthy enough to join him on set again.
There are no Hairy Bikers without Dave.
Speaking to the Daily Mail recently, Si said: “There is no [Punch & Judy] show without Punch and there is no Hairy Bikers without Dave.”

Dave announced last month that he had been diagnosed with cancer. He did not specify exactly which type.
He shared his health issues on his and Si’s Hairy Bikers – Agony Uncles podcast.
David, 64, told his friend and co-star: “Anyway, Kingy, I need to get clean now. I haven’t been well lately and really need to get some chemo.”
He added: “You know all this anyway, so this year is going to be a little quiet for me.
“I’m not going to film, some festivals I won’t be able to attend, some may be okay, but this year is a bit of a write-off for us.”
He added: “I’ve had to talk about this because I don’t want to hide under a rock, but I would love it if people would respect my privacy and just let me go ahead and give Si and our team their full confidence. ” support they need.
“That would be great.
“But look, the prognosis is good. I’ll be fine.”

Dave covered his bald head with a hat for the occasion, but he has embraced his temporary look.
