DAVE MYERS

Television Cook

Born in Barrow-in-Furness, Dave Myers studied Fine Arts at Goldsmiths (funding his studies by working as a furnace man in a steelworks), and after graduating, worked as a make-up artist specialising in prosthetics for the BBC, eventually working in film and television on productions including Prime Suspect and Spooks. While working on a Catherine Cookson adaptation he met Si King, and the two found they had food and motorbikes in common, and the travels led to the creation of The Hairy Bikers. The pair have presented their own brand of cookery shows, including The Hairy Bikers' Cookbook, The Hairy Bakers and Meals on Wheels. Dave is also a Member of the Food Writers' Guild.

Dave will be taking part in the eleventh series of Strictly Come Dancing and will be dancing with Karen Hauer.
