The Hairy Bikers

The Hairy Bikers

Duo of TV chefs and cookery writers, hailing from the North East of England...

Simon King

Simon King is a big, blond-bearded biker from Newcastle, where he lives with his partner and three children. His infectious laugh and friendly charm have served him well for many years working as a first assistant director and locations manager for film and television, recently working on the Harry Potter films.

But it's his passion for food, encouraged from an early age by his father - who'd bring back exotic ingredients from his voyages with the Royal Navy - that really matters to Simon. Luckily his enthusiasm is matched by that of his children who are more than happy to try out new kinds of food.

Dave Myers

Dave Myers was born and bred in Barrow-in-Furness and his versatile skills have taken him to some unusual places. He worked as a furnaceman in a steelworks to finance his Master's degree in fine arts before joining the BBC as a make-up artist, specialising in prosthetics. He has worked on many feature films and television series, including Lives and Loves of a She Devil, and the BBC One hit Spooks.

His career has taken him from Hollywood to the African deserts and he's travelled extensively away from work too. Dave currently lives on Roa Island, in Morecambe bay, where he's Club Champion of the boat club.

Dave and Simon are the co-presenters of several successful travel/cookery TV series and co-authors of the accompanying recipe books, which are listed below.
