Who are the Hairy Bikers?

You’re probably familiar with Simon King and David Mayers from the numerous TV shows they’ve hosted over the years.

The hungry twosome met in 1995 while working in TV and film production and have been popular TV presenters for more than 13 years. Their first big break was in 2006, when they presented their first successful show – 20 episodes of The Hairy Bikers’ Cookbook. Si and Dave have also published 12 cookbooks, including The Hairy Dieters, which earned them a National Book Award in 2012.

The pair also made headlines with their incredible weight loss, when they each lost an impressive three stone.

What recipes will the Hairy Bikers be making on Kitchen Garden Live?


During their live show at The Hampton Court Palace Flower Show, the Hairy Bikers will be taking inspiration from their al fresco location and going for seasonal recipes that you can make at home for a summery meal with family and friends.

Some of the dishes on the list are similar to ones we already have in our collection, including lemony monkfish kebabs, couscous salad, chilli hoisin pork and vegetable stir-fry, and whole baked fish with mushroom and feta stuffed peppers. They will also spend some time making summer classics like Pimm’s.

When is Kitchen Garden Live with the Hairy Bikers on?

Kitchen Garden Live with the Hairy Bikers will be on during the The Hampton Court Palace Flower Show, from Monday 3rd July until Friday 7th July at 11am on BBC One.
