Hairy Bikers star Si King has shared an update on his co-star Dave Myers as he continues to recover from Covid.
The presenter made another solo television appearance after revealing on The One Show last week that Dave, 64, is unwell with the virus, this time joining Dan Walker and Sally Nugent on today’s BBC Breakfast.
When asked how the TV chef is getting on, Si said: ‘He’s getting there. I think it’s hit him a little bit harder than any of us were anticipating, really. But Dave is as tough as an old boot.’
He added: ‘He’s not very well at the minute but we’re keeping a close eye on him.’
‘Will you pass on our love?’ Strictly Come Dancing contestant Dan asked. ‘I hope he’s okay and that he’s back at it as soon as he can be.’
Viewers also echoed Dan’s sentiments and shared messages for Dave on Twitter.
‘My best wishes for a speedy recovery to Dave bless him,’ wrote one.
‘Get well soon Dave,’ another penned.
Si had joined today’s BBC Breakfast to chat about the Hairy Bikers’ new eight-part show The Hairy Bikers Go North, which sees the duo explore Cumbria, Yorkshire and Lancashire.
‘We just wanted to look at the landscape and the people and the produce and the food that really had shaped Dave and I’s people,’ Si explained.
‘It was a lovely series to do.’
The fourth episode of the show is due to air on Thursday night and sees Si and Dave riding through the North York Moors National Park as they continue on their northern adventure.
Of course, their discovery of all the wonderful local produce is well documented, as well as the interesting characters they meet along the way.
BBC Breakfast airs weekdays from 6am on BBC One.
