Hairy Bikers chef Si King has revealed that his co-star Dave Myers is battling Covid.

The television presenter went solo as he joined Rylan Clark-Neil and Ronan Keating on The One Show on Thursday night, explaining that Dave is currently unwell with the disease.

‘He has Covid,’ Si explained, before going on to say: ‘He’s getting there. I think he’s not too well, but it’s not bad.’

‘Well, we’re sending him all the love,’ Rylan said.

‘It’s very odd to be here without him,’ Si admitted.

‘We decided to do it before the Covid breakout,’ Si explained of the upcoming programme, as he appeared on his own.

‘We wanted to do this love letter to the north, basically.’

Ronan noted that the series sees both Si and Dave delve into their personal lives a lot more this time around.

‘We just wanted to open up a little bit and just have the crack,’ Si responded.

‘It was a lovely show to do with people we all know and love and the food that we grew up with. It was wonderful.’

The One Show airs weekdays at 7pm on BBC One.
