Dave Myers, 62, is a British television cook that has enjoyed almost two decades of success as one half of the Hairy Bikers, alongside Si King, 53. The duo regularly keep viewers entertained with their on-screen chemistry but now the former has revealed the moment things “snowballed” after a disagreement.
He revealed how the presenting duo had a “spat” while shooting a show in Namibia, alarmingly over a bottle of mayonnaise during the early days of their career.
In an exclusive interview with Express.co.uk, Dave admitted despite the pair’s friendship, things had not always been smooth sailing for them.
“I don’t know if he told you this but we had one spat in Namibia,” Dave explained. “And we were both very nervous. We had shot the pilot for our very first programme and our spat was over mayonnaise.”
He continued: “It was over the oil used in mayonnaise as we walked up and down the aisles. In the early days, we had to do our own food shopping for our shoot. And I think we thought the programme was falling apart really.”

Fortunately, the pair were able to quickly settle their differences and have since gone onto to have long-standing cooking careers and friendship.
Speaking about their relationship, Dave explained: “We cook together really well. It’s great. It’s funny, the last book that we did, One Pot Wonders, we kind of started writing the recipes while we were on tour.
"We set ourselves 10 ideas because we had 200 recipes. But it kind of snowballed because I dip into something and then he dips into something.”
He added: “But we get on really well. We’re in business together and it’s like being in business with your brother. It just works really. We’ve spent a lot of time together. Si has got his fiancé in Australia and I've got my family, so we do have to go home sometimes.
