The Hairy Bikers - Live webchat, TODAY, Monday 17 September, 1-2pm

Si and Dave are joining us for a lunchtime webchat on Monday 17 September at 1pm.

A bit of background info: The Hairy Bikers met on the set of a Catherine Cookson drama shock. Si was Assistant Director and Dave a makeup artist, specialising in prosthetics shock shock. On discovering their mutual love of motorbikes and food, The Hairy Bikers were born. Since then food has been their mission, producing several TV series and six books.

In August they embarked on a mission to change their lifestyle and lose two-and-a-half stone, while staying true to their love of great food. The Hairy Dieters gave themselves just three months to complete the mission and simultaneously produce a book, The Hairy Dieters: How to Love Food and Lose Weight which, they say is 'real food for real people, not skinny minnies'.

Kicking off at the end of September 2012, The Hairy Bikers are embarking on a whirlwind tour of the UK. If you send in a question to The Hairy Bikers or join in the webchat, you will be entered into a draw to win a pair of tickets to not only see the Hairy Bikers live at the nearest venue to you, but to join them on stage and be cooked for by them. For more details and tickets, please go to

Chat with the Hairy Bikers at 1pm on Monday, or post a question in advance.

Tethers, poundshop my dear. <realises this may not be as good as a reply from si and dave>

Can't remember who asked about taking kids to see the stage show, when I went to see it the other year there were a few rude comments but nothing that kids would pick up on IMHO. smile

I luff si and dave me, loved dave's x's. (and noone slated him for it) wink

Fab interview though.

My dad helped Dave a few years ago when he crashed his bike on the little bridge by Asda in Gosforth, and I stalked Si around Costco last year grin

feetheart I wouldn't have taken children to the one we went to, they got a bit blue unlike on tv although there was a youngster in front of us maybe 8/9. Lots of adult humour.

CastielsTrenchcoat Mon 17-Sep-12 17:29:43

NeverKnowinglyUnderstood Mon 17-Sep-12 16:35:37

EnglishGirlApproximately Mon 17-Sep-12 16:27:07

tethers I've seen them in poundland before. Failing that if you're ever in North Notts there's a shop in my village that sells all sorts of random stuff and I'm sure they sell them smile

McKayz Mon 17-Sep-12 16:08:25

Rachel are they as funny in real life as they are on their shows?

tethersend Mon 17-Sep-12 15:59:46

Mine neither- am doomed to hunting for foil pie dishes for all eternity.

Lovely blokes though.

RachelMumsnet (MNHQ) Mon 17-Sep-12 15:54:36

Sorry if your question didn't get answered - there were SO many and believe me they did work hard throughout the hour to get through as many as poss. Hope you enjoyed the webchat anyway - we had a raucous hour at MNHQ - do look out for the pics of their visit on Facebook.

Congratulations to milk who has won a pair of tickets to not only see the Hairy Bikers live, but to join them on stage and be cooked for by them shock. We'll be in touch by PM with more details.
