The Hairy Bikers have been a fixture on British telly for many years but with the sad announcement from Si King that Dave Myers has passed away, many will be wondering how they met.

The pair are best known for their travel and cooking shows that have taken them the length and breadth of the UK.

However, their time together goes further back than this with the two meeting on the set of another show.

How did Hairy Bikers duo Dave Myers and Si King meet?

After studying at the University of London and earning himself a master's degree in art history, Dave Myers met Si King on the set of another show in 1995.

At the time, he was a professional make-up artist who specialised in prosthetics. He was working on a TV drama called The Gambling Man.

The pair would soon appear in their first show together, presenting a mixture of cookery and travel in The Hairy Bikers' Cookbook.

Much of the show featured the pair travelling along in their signature motorbikes while engaging in their usual banter.

They would go on to star in a number of other programmes together including The Hairy Bikers' Food Tour of Britain in 2009 and The Hairy Bikers' Asian Adventure in 2014.
