The Hairy Bikers are one of Britain’s most iconic and well-known duos. Described as big hearted and down to earth, The Hairy Bikers have a love for good food. Having cooked together for more than twenty years, The Hairy Bikers are experts in food. Working with Michelin starred chefs and travelling the world, The Hairy Bikers have searched the nation for new recipes and in search for good food.
The stars of several hit television shows, their first diet book, The Hairy Dieters: How To Love Food and Lose Weight, toppled 50 Shades of Grey from the top of the bestsellers charts in summer of 2012, remaining in that position for six weeks. To this date, the book still comfortably tops the list of the best-selling cookbooks of 2013, outselling its nearest rival by almost two-and-a-half copies to one. The Hairy Bikers‘ second book, Eat For Life, did equally well whilst their third, Good Eating, was published recently in October of 2015.
Born and brought up in Barrow-in-Furness, North West England, David Myers’ versatile skills have taken him to some unusual places. Myers worked as a furnace-man in a steelworks whilst a student; to finance a degree and postgraduate studies in Fine Arts at Goldsmiths, where he studied egg tempera and the work of the Old Masters.
On graduating, Myer’s joined the BBC as a make-up artist, specialising in prosthetics. Myers then went on to work on numerous feature films and high profile television series’, notably Lives And Loves Of A She Devil, Prime Suspect and the hit BBC One series, Spooks. His career has taken him everywhere from Hollywood, all the way to the African deserts. Myer’s has also travelled extensively away from work, picking up recipes and cultures almost as fast as Myer’s has made friends from all over the world.
Simon King, hailing from Newcastle in North East England, King is a big, blonde-bearded biker with an infectious laugh, alongside a charm and sense of humour thats a skeleton key when it comes into peoples hearts. This easy congeniality and warmth served him well for years in his work as a First Assistant Director and Locations Manager for film and television; including the Harry Potter series of films, but his passions lie elsewhere. King developed a love for food by particularly his father, who would bring back exotic ingredients from his voyages with the Royal Navy, and Kings enthusiasm, is matched by his own children’s willingness to try new kinds of food.
