A BBC show Dave Myers and his co-Hairy Biker Si King have been involved in for 18 years paid tribute by creating a montage of some of their best moments. 

Barrow-born Dave Myers died aged 66 on February 28. He found fame in his 40s but was a frequent figure on TV for the remainder of his life with his friend Si King, whom he had met some years before when they both worked in the production side of the small screen. 

Saturday Kitchen host Matt Tebbutt praised the star and his role on the show cooking meals with Si.

He began by saying: "Now as I'm sure you know, this has been a very sad week as we lost someone very close to the show - Dave Myers who was one half of the Hairy Bikers, along with Si King.

"They've been on the show countless times over the last 18 years and even hosted it a few times. We were privileged to have Dave back in the studio last October after he was recovering from another round of treatment.

"He then bravely got back on his bike and continued with his TV life with Si. But sadly cancer took him from us far too soon.

"We hope to stage a full tribute show for Dave in due course but here is a little montage to remind you why we loved him so much."

In one of the clips, when the Bikers are asked how they got from being make-up artists for Top of the Pops to their current career, Dave prompted laughter in the studio when he said: "We certainly haven't slept our way to the top."

The montage also showed Dave struggling with a cake and he also said that a Kent cobnut cake he and Si had done previously was 'drier than a camel's hoof.' 

At the end of the montage, the show played a clip of Dave and Si saying goodbye at the end of a Saturday Kitchen episode, before fading to a black-and-white photo in tribute to the Hairy Biker.
