Video: Hairy Bikers come to Leeds for book-signing

Have your say

A record number of fans turned out for a book-signing by celebrity chefs the Hairy Bikers in Leeds.

The duo – real names Simon King and David Myers – were at Costco, on Leathley Road in Hunslet, to promote their new fat-busting recipe book The Hairy Dieters 3.

The store’s assistant manager Nicola Warburton said nearly 250 copies went during the visit yesterday morning.

“I think the previous Costco record was 166, so it was a record-breaking event,” she said.

“They are really popular guys, really down to earth and had time for everybody.”

The new book follows a stringent weight-loss regime that saw the chefs lose six stones between them.
