Dave Myers’s update on illness
Dave opened up about his treatment last week on the How To Be 60 podcast.
He told Kaye Adams: “The chemotherapy doesn’t half age you quickly. Because your balance goes, so for someone with a motorbike that’s a disaster, and my walking has been affected quite a lot, really.”
He added that the illness was “one of life’s great levellers”.
“It doesn’t matter if you’re on the telly or on the dole, if you get that then you’re in the [bleep],” Dave continued.

Dave revealed his diagnosis last year on the The Hairy Bikers – Agony Uncles podcast with Si.
“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 at the time.
I am really excited to be back alongside Si at the Yorkshire Dales Food & Drink Festival, it’s one of the highlights of our year.
“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 okay but this year’s a bit of a write-off for us.”
