Heartwrenching reason Hairy Bikers star never revealed what type of cancer he had

Hairy Bikers star Dave Myers never revealed what type of cancer he had because of one heart-wrenching reason. Dave’s co-star Si King sadly confirmed today that his pal had passed away aged 66 after battling cancer since 2022. The star, best known for being one part of the Hairy Bikers, had fought a long health battle prior to his passing.

Dave revealed in 2022 that he had been diagnosed with cancer. And Dave never did reveal his specific diagnosis, admitting in an interview two years ago that he “did not want to be judged”.

Speaking to the Guardian in 2022, he explained he did not share this information “because everybody then goes Googling, everybody becomes an amateur doctor. “And I don’t want to be judged – yet”. He added: “A huge inconvenience is the best way to describe it.”

The aggressive chemotherapy he underwent to combat the disease not only meant he had to learn to walk again but also made him lose his appetite. Posting on Twitter today, Si told fans that Dave had passed away at home on Wednesday evening, surrounded by wife Lili, his family, pal David, as well as his Hairy Bikers co-star.
