The latest episode of The Hairy Bikers paid tribute to host Dave Myers which left fans in floods of tears.

The TV chef, who found fame alongside his friend Si King as part of the motorcycle-riding cooking duo, died last Wednesday after being treated for cancer for the past couple of years.

In the latest episode of The Hairy Bikers Go West, Dave, along with co-host Si, took their signature motorcycles to explore the food of Western Britain. 

They visited Newport and Bristol, taking in diverse foods from several different cultures.

They started with Iranian food in Newport before moving on to a variety of other cuisines. This included East African food and luxury cookies and cakes, all along the River Severn.

Dave spoke about the history of the Clifton Suspension Bridge and made some Clifton Puffs, which were originally made to commemorate the opening of the bridge.

Following the final credits of the show, it ended with a tribute to Dave. It read: "In loving memory of our friend, Dave Myers 1957 - 2024."
