The Hairy Bikers’ Si King has said his co-star Dave Myers is ‘getting there’ as he shared an update on his pals cancer battle. 
Speaking at
Bolton Food and Drink Festival on Sunday, the TV chef added that Dave is ‘in the trenches
of it all’ as he thanked their fans for the ‘ongoing support.’
Dave, 64,
has chosen not to publicly reveal the type of cancer he
has, but revealed in May he was undergoing chemotherapy and that ‘the prognosis is okay.’<div class=“artSplitter mol-img-group”> <div class=“mol-img”> <div class=“image-wrap”> “” / </div> <noscript>

Speaking
about his medical condition with his TV cooking partner Si, he said: ‘I may be a baldy biker

said: ‘Anyway Kingy, I’ve got to come clean now, I haven’t been too well recently and
basically, I’ve got to have some chemo, you 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 okay 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 okay, I’m going to be fine.’<div class=“artSplitter mol-img-group” > <div class=“mol-img”> <div class=“image-wrap”> ” > </div> <noscript> <img > </div> Resting:

‘I’ve just got to tuck in, look after myself, eat sensibly and get over this

‘I may

I don’t want to make a fuss about it, I look alright bald actually.’
Dave has suffered with illness in the past after being
diagnosed with a cyst on his brain in 1998, and later glaucoma, which is an eye condition that can lead to
blindness. 
The same year he was diagnosed
with having a cyst on his brain, Dave sadly lost his fiancée to cancer, previously describing 1998 as the worst year of
his life. <div class=“artSplitter mol-img-group”> <div class=“mol-img”> <div class=“image-wrap”> “” /
