Hairy Bikers star Dave Myers has said he is "doing kinda all right" as he continues to receive treatment for cancer.

The chef, from Barrow-in-Furness, will return to TV screens in a new series on BBC Two at 20:00 GMT on Tuesday.

The star was diagnosed with cancer last year at the age of 64, forcing him to take a break from filming.

Myers said the new series, filmed before his diagnosis, was "joyous".

Appearing on BBC Breakfast, he gave an update on his cancer, which he has been receiving treatment for since April.

"[The treatment] is still ongoing but I'm kinda doing all right, it's like many people, it's something one learns to live with," he said.

'Chefs don't know'

Myers, who has previously appeared on Countdown and Strictly Come Dancing, reassured fans he was "going to be fine".

He said: "It was an idea that came together that a lot of chefs don't know what's on their own doorstep.
