Taking to The Hairy Bikers Instagram account on Monday (April 17) Dave delighted fans with the exciting career announcement.

In a video, he said: “It’s finally here everyone! Our finished copies of Eat Well Every Day are here!"

"Filled with stuff you’d want to eat every day of the week! Pre-order your copy now, through the link in our bio, so it lands on your doorstep on publication day!

"Send us your pics with your copies, we're so excited for you you lot to have them as well!"

Fans soon flooded the comments section to share their excitement at the new book, with one person writing: “Another fantastic book! Congratulations!”

Another added: “You are both so lovely! What a great book, can’t wait to take a look.”

“Fabulous love you both!” gushed a third follower, while someone else said: “Absolutely love your books!”

Dave revealed the news of his cancer diagnosis in May during an episode of his podcast which he co-hosts with pal Si.

At the time, Dave told fans he didn’t want to “hide under a rock”, but will be away from work.

As a result, Dave underwent chemotherapy and reassured fans at the time that the “prognosis is ok” and that he was “going to be fine.”

More recently, the TV star gave an insight into the "brutal" toll chemo had taken on him.

Speaking on the Seasoned podcast, Dave spoke candidly about his experience.

He said: “It's funny, when you first start chemotherapy… it's quite hard. I'm still having it. It really was brutal.

“I lost so much weight and then it's a battle to get your calories in.”

He went on to say: "At first I thought, 'Right, this is great, I can eat all those pies I haven't been eating for years', except [my] appetite was dreadful!

“For me, a glutton, losing my appetite was awful, a can of soup was about as far as I could go.

"Now I've got to the point where I'm at the weight I want to be, and I want to maintain it."

Dave also addressed his health on Kaye Adams' podcast, titled 'How to be 60'.

“By God, the chemotherapy doesn't half age you quickly,” he said.

“Your balance goes, so for someone with a motorbike that's a disaster, and my walking has been affected quite a lot, really."

He also claimed he had “no symptoms" of his cancer and was merely just affected by the chemo.
