The brilliant new book from Britain's favourite foodie double act.
You'd expect an autobiography from Hairy Bikers Si King and Dave Myers to provide some behind-the-scenes insights into the world of telly. That's happily the case, but the pair can offer more showbiz tales than most: before they bagged their own BBC2 travelogue, Myers worked in prosthetics, while King was a locations manager. From the story of shepherding a baboon through Durham Cathedral to a close encounter with a topless Catherine Zeta-Jones, it's all included - alongside their most memorable meals - in Blood, Sweat & Tyres, which is both mouthwatering and moving.
Their admirable determination to overcome adversity and live life to the full makes Blood, Sweat & Tyres an endearing and thoughtful coming-of-age story about two of Britain's most-loved personalities. Dave and Si are undoubtedly two of the most interesting, engaging and likeable characters you will read about this Christmas.
