And now, during a chat on the Seasoned podcast, Dave has revealed what the situation is with filming.
He said: “All being well, I’m going to go back to filming in May,” to which host and fellow chef Tommy Banks responded with “wow”.
But that’s not all, as Dave is gearing up for the release of another Hairy Bikers cookbook with pal Si.
He explained on the podcast: “It’s not a diet book because Si and I are both… we’ve kinda lost the weight we need. But I’ve had a pretty crappy year really with chemotherapy and stuff, so it’s eat well for life, really.
“And I think it’s about eating for the immunity, your heart, for fibre. And as you get older, well, young as well, it’s important to eat well, but still have that knack of making food tasty so you don’t feel as though it’s a penance. So that’s going out.”
