HAIRY Bikers star Dave Myers has been seen in a video for the first since since undergoing chemotherapy.
The TV chef, 63, revealed earlier this month that he was battling cancer saying he “may be a baldy biker for a while”.
Today, he appeared in a video from the Hairy Bikers Agony Uncles series telling fans he had “embraced the baldness”.
Dave even joked that his wife said he looked like “Stanley Tucci who’s been sleeping behind the library for a month”.
He said: “Thank you to everyone who has sent in a goodwill message to me. I do appreciate the good thoughts. I’ll get there. As you can see, I’ve embraced the baldness.”
Referring to Hunger Games actor Stanley, 61, he added: “I looked at my wife and she said, ‘You look like Stanley Tucci who’s been sleeping behind the library for a month.’

“As a great fan of Stanley Tucci, I’ve embraced that. I quite like it really. I’ve got the beard. Nice, fresh for the summer.”
Dave opened up about his cancer diagnosis on his podcast with TV pal Simon King earlier this month.
The star said: “Anyway Kingy, I’ve got to come clean now, I haven’t been too well recently and, basically, I’ve got to have some chemo.
“You know all this anyway, so this year is going to be a bit quiet for me, I’m not going to be filming, some of the festivals I’m not going to be able to go to, some may be OK but this year’s a bit of a write-off for us.”
He added: “I have had to speak up about this because I don’t want to hide under a rock.
“But I would love it if people respected my privacy and just let me get on with it and give Si and our team all the support they need, that would be great. But look, the prognosis is OK, I’m going to be fine.
“I’ve just got to tuck in, look after myself, eat sensibly and get over this mess, flog books, and be a happy person so, within that, that’s where I am.
“I may be a baldy biker for a while so it’s just a warning, I don’t want to make a fuss about it, I look alright bald actually.”
He added: “Under different circumstances I would embrace it more but I feel under these circumstances it’s simply something I have to live with, get on with it, and crack on.”
