Dave’s diagnosis

Dave revealed his diagnosis last year on the The Hairy Bikers’ Agony Uncles podcast with Si.

He said at the time: “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.

“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.”
