Hairy Bikers' Dave Myers shows off bald head for the first time after cancer treatment

By Hana Carter

Hairy Bikers star Dave Myers has lost his trademark locks during his cancer battle.

The TV chef joked that he might be "a baldy biker for a while" in his first interview since undergoing chemotherapy.

In a video for the Hairy Bikers Agony Uncles series, he updated fans on his health and thanked them for their support.

He beamed: "Thank you to everyone who has sent in a goodwill message to me. I do appreciate the good thoughts. I'll get there. As you can see, I've embraced the baldness."

The chef joked about how his wife said that he looks like Hunger Games actor Stanley Tucci.

"I looked at my wife and she said, 'You look like Stanley Tucci who's been sleeping behind the library for a month,' he said.

"As a great fan of Stanley Tucci, I've embraced that. I quite like it really. I've got the beard. Nice, fresh for the summer," he laughed.

Earlier this month he broke the news about his diagnosis with his co-star Si King: "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.

He said that he looked good bald and joked he was a 'baldy biker' (BBC)

"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 OK but this year's a bit of a write-off for us."

He added: "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 said this year was going to 'be a bit of a write off' as he undergoes treatment (BBC)

"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."

Si and Dave met in 1995 and have been pals ever since (BBC)

Dave hasn't disclosed the type of cancer he has.

He found fame with pal Si as one of the Hairy Bikers.

The pair have written 25 cookbooks and have shed over six stone between them - which inspired them to create a cook book for weight loss.
