Hairy Bikers star Dave Myers has shared a video of himself with a bald head for the first time since telling fans he has cancer, calling himself the 'baldy biker'.

The chef and TV star, 64, announced last week that he had been diagnosed with the illness and that he would be undergoing chemotherapy.

He has now shared a clip on Twitter showing him with his head newly bald as he filmed his Agony Uncles podcast, where he revealed his wife Liliana reckons he now looks like "Stanley Tucci who’s been sleeping behind the library for a month".

The clip captured him telling a story about how he once went skiing in Switzerland and "ended up with a German policewoman".

The star was describing the woman as "strong" when his wife piped up in the background.

"I heard that!" she warned him, as everyone started to laugh.

Last week, Myers told fans he would be undergoing treatment and that his prognosis was "OK", adding: "I’m going to be fine."

"I’ve just got to tuck in, look after myself, eat sensibly and get over this mess, flog books, and be a happy person so within that, that’s where I am," he said.

Speaking on his latest podcast, he thanked everyone for sending him messages of support.

"I do appreciate the good thoughts, I'll get there," he said.
