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.
The brilliant new book from Britain's favourite foodie double act.
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.
