At the end of last month, the chef passed away with his family and friends by his side, colleague and lifelong friend Si King revealed.

Taking to Instagram on the Hairy Biker account, she wrote: ‘A message from Lili, Dave’s wife-

‘I will never be able to thank you all enough for the massive wave of love, compassion and care that you have shown towards me, Simon and our families in these past days since Dave passed.

‘I want you all to know that I have read every single message and comment that you sent… your stories about Dave, your feelings you shared with me mean a lot and my heart is filled with gratitude and love.

‘It amazes me how many hearts he touched and how many people wanted to express their love for what Dave and Si have created for nearly 20 years. I know the Hairy Bikers have been part of your living rooms for such a long time and I feel your loss as much as you feel mine!

‘My husband, David Myers was a larger than life character and he did everything with passion, enthusiasm and generosity of spirit. His energy was endless when it came to cooking and talking recipes, or biking and talking bikes.

‘An amazing storyteller! And through his stories and TV appearances he was constantly inspiring and encouraging people to cook, travel, to live their life to the fullest.

‘An exceptional husband, wonderful stepdad, loyal friend and in his own words, a creator, never a follower.

‘I feel I’m grieving with a whole nation… and this is something special. ❤️ My wonderful Dave ♥️ – Lili Myers.’

However Si was left filming alone in parts of the episode, as Dave was too ill to take part in all of the filming. 

As the TV chef was left without his other half, Si shared some heartfelt words as he reflected on how odd it felt to be without his mate. 

He admitted: ‘I genuinely wish my best mate was here because he would absolutely love this,’ before adding: ‘It is odd without him’.

As Si visited a farm in Tai’N Lon, Dave was unable to join: ‘Sadly, due to my ongoing treatment, I need to take a little break today, so that means you’re riding solo, mate.’

Si replied: ‘Rest easy, dude, rest easy.’

Si told the farmers he was the ‘B Team’ as Dave, the ‘A Team, was resting. ‘I genuinely wish my best mate was here because he would absolutely love this. This is what we’re all about, it’s fantastic.

‘And he’s a good grower, Dave. Dave and his wife are good growers.’

The Hairy Bikers have always been a double act, and Si admitted he felt odd travelling on the bike alone. 

‘I didn’t like riding on my own, particularly, but I’m going to take him some produce back and have a nibble. It’s odd without him.’

As Dave returned to visit a historic railway in Portmadog, he enjoyed a lifelong ambition of driving a steam train.  

The star explained: ‘When I visited this area as a young lad, Bob would have already been working on these impressive locomotives. Sadly, we didn’t have the money to ride these rails back then, so this trip feels all the more special.’
