Chatting to Phil and Rochelle, Si admitted he was missing his cooking pal, saying it felt “weird” to be on the show on his own.

As Si geared up to introduce the dish he’d be cooking, presenter Phil asked him: “My first question has got to be how’s Dave?”

Si replied: “He’s doing okay. He’s doing okay. He remains pretty positive and focused on his treatment.”

He’s doing okay, he’s typical Dave, he’s as tough as old boots.

He continued: “He’s doing okay, he’s typical Dave, he’s as tough as old boots.”

“It must be weird for you cooking alone today?” Phil asked.

“It’s a bit odd without my mate, I have to say,” Si admitted.

What has Dave said about his cancer?

“You know all this anyway, so this year is going to be a bit quiet for me. I’m not going to be filming, some of the festivals I’m not going to be able to go to, some may be okay but this year’s a bit of a write-off for us,” he continued.

Dave then went on to say that he wanted to speak up because he didn’t want to “hide under a rock”.

However, Dave was quick to reassure fans that the “prognosis is okay”, though. “I’m going to be fine,” he said.
