Dave Myers is on my list of favourite TV Chefs, I love to watch Keith Floyd specials, Ainsley Harriot makes me laugh as does Gordon Ramsey with his more adult humour in the kitchen but there’s something about Dave’s wit and puns that keeps me smiling whilst salivating over his recipes with his long time friend Simon King. The Hairy Bikers are a national treasure and are a joy to watch on a cruise, on a flight or at home when they’re TV Specials are constantly showing.They bring that Comedy Duo aspect to a cooking series, they make you feel homely and happy and just in a matter of a few years, I was delighted to see they were both proposed into the Water Rats HQ at Kings Cross.So on a few occasions I have been sat in a room with Dave and heard his stories and anecdotes and I have loved being in his company. Having read his Autobiography I learned of his TV experience and relationship with showbusiness and enjoyed the story of how the Hairy Bikers became one of the biggest thing in a British kitchen.Dave talks today about those days in make-up, taking Orville the Duck to the pub, Strictly Come Dancing, providing the make up for an elephant for the Paul Daniels Magic Show and washing Les Dawson’s hair, joining the Water Rats and walking through Charlie Chaplin’s Garden with me and Scribe Rat Mike Martin in Vevey, Switzerland in 2016… I can’t believe he had time to fit this chat in but after we finished he was off on a holiday and then a 4 week film shoot for another series of the Hairy Bikers, so I’m happy to say welcome to Eyes & Teeth Season 8 for the final time when I chat to TV Personality Dave Myers
