TV screens were brighter today as Hairy Bikers star Dave Myers was seen with his cooking partner-in-crime on This Morning for the first time since his cancer diagnosis in May 2022 — sporting his infamous beard.

The chef, 65, who has been battling the disease, appeared alongside fellow biker Simon King and the duo delighted viewers by cooking up some lamb koftas.

Phillip Schofield and Holly Willoughby both agreed he is 'looking really well'. 

Speaking about his health, he said: "I'm doing very well and it's so nice to be back. Yeah it's work in progress but I've got my hair back and I'm feeling great. It's the healthy eating you see that does it! No, I'm doing really well."

Meanwhile Si joked: "He's just as irritating so it's great!' before kissing him on the face.  

Twitter users praised: "Nice to see Dave Myers looking well after his cancer battle #ThisMorning."

A second said: "@HairyBikers Brilliant to see Dave on This Morning. He looks great!"

A third added: "So pleased to see the Hairy Bikers together on the show today."

The TV stars are taking to the road and promoting their new cook book.

David told fans on social media: "This is a moment that doesn't get stale. Si and I are so lucky, when our new book arrives we get to open the box, the first glimpse is fantastic! I'm so proud of it."

Simon added: "This is a special book this, hope you enjoy it! Send us your pics with your copies, we’re so excited for you lot to have them as well!"

Dave recently spoke on Tommy Banks' Seasoned podcast and spoke about his treatment side effects: ''It's funny, when you first start chemotherapy… it's quite hard. I'm still having it. It really was brutal.

"I lost so much weight and then it's a battle to get your calories in. At first I thought, 'Right, this is great, I can eat all those pies I haven't been eating for years', except [my] appetite was dreadful!

"For me, a glutton, losing my appetite was awful. A can of soup was about as far as I could go.

"Now I've got to the point where I'm at the weight I want to be, and I want to maintain it."
