A NEW series featuring The Hairy Bikers will air next week and will see the pair visit a Wirral fishmonger in one of the episodes.

This seven-part series, The Hairy Bikers Go West, on BBC Two will see the boys reunite to travel down the west coast of the UK.

Each week David Myers and Si King will base themselves in stunning locations while exploring the changing areas through restaurants, recipes, and inventive new food entrepreneurs.

They begin their journey on the west coast of Scotland and journey through Lancashire, Merseyside, North Wales, Bristol, and finally Devon and Dorset.

Along the way, they discover a host of inspiring local producers doing their bit to celebrate an area’s rich diversity, learn about the future of food production, and track down a new generation of young farmers driven by sustainability.

When will Wirral be featured?

In episode four, the Bikers explore Merseyside and pay a visit to West Kirby.

They meet farmers Liam and Rebecca and visit San's Café and Wild Loaf bakery in Liverpool.

They also visit West Kirby-born Guy, who is the owner of Seafood Shack. It's the freshly caught scallops, and the smaller and sweeter queenie in particular, that really grabs their attention, so it’s back to base to create a feast with the wonderful flavours.

The Globe reported back in September when the pair were spotted filming at the West Kirby fishmonger.
