Hairy Bikers star Si King has confirmed he will not be making any shows while his co-star Dave Myers battles cancer.

Myers tragically revealed earlier this month that he is suffering with cancer and will take some time away.

And now his colleague has revealed that he will not be continuing with the popular cooking show without him.

"There’s no [Punch & Judy] show without Punch and there’s no Hairy Bikers without Dave,” he told the Metro.

His comments come after Myers made his first appearance since his cancer treatment last week.

The chef was heard laughing and joking during the latest episode of his Agony Uncles podcast alongside King.

Myers said: '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.

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

“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.”

Myers has so far declined to specifically say which type of cancer he has.
