The perennially popular Hairy Bikers are back and they’re on a mission to find Britain’s best cooking family in a brand new BBC Two Daytime studio show.
Si King and Dave Myers will be mixing cooking, celebrity chat and their unique brand of entertainment in the 30-part series which will transmit weekdays from late autumn.
Each episode will feature foodie challenges for two teams of families fighting for the title of Britain’s Best Cooking Family.
Celebrity guests will also join the Hairies for some revealing chat each day.
Morevover, viewers can cook along with the Hairy Bikers: the shows will feature a seven-minute evening meal that viewers will be able to follow and serve up by the end of the programme.
Liam Keelan, Controller Daytime, says: “It’s fantastic to see the Hairy Bikers back on BBC Daytime. Dave and Simon’s particular brand of humour and warmth as well as their skill in the kitchen will make this a must see for our audience.”
Dave and Si add: “We’re both thrilled to be back on daily teatime telly. The programme is going to be an exciting mix of extraordinary ordinary families and celebrities who share a common bond of good food and cooking. It will be a great mix of chat and recipes guaranteed to make you super-hungry, with the chance to cook along and enjoy them with us every evening.
“And if that’s not enough to whet your family’s appetite, there will also be some simple but foolproof kitchen techniques and secrets indispensable to top chefs and fanatical foodies alike and equally useful in your kitchen at home.
“We’re also looking forward to meeting some of our favourite celebrities – and rest assured we’ll be giving them a good grilling alongside the teatime chops!”
The 30 x 45-minute series is being made by BBC Entertainment in London and has been commissioned by the Controller of Daytime and Early Peak, Liam Keelan. The Executive Producers are Alex McLeod and Carla-Maria Lawson.
