The Hairy Bikers' Dave Myers was in high spirits as he appeared in an interview for the first time since he began treatment for cancer.
The 64-year-old chef revealed his diagnosis earlier in May, but failed to specify which type of cancer he had.
He appeared while filming an episode for his Agony Uncles podcast with sidekick Si King, where he revealed his bald head.
Dave made a point of referring to his changed appearance, saying: "I may be a baldy biker for a while… it's simply something I have to live with."
The pair discussed Dave's diagnosis on the podcast and how he was feeling about the situation.
Dave said: "Anyway Kingy, I've got to come clean now, I haven't been too well recently and basically, I've got to have some chemo, 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.
"I have had to speak up about this because I don't want to hide under a rock, but I would love it if people respected my privacy and just let me get on with it and give Si and our team all the support they need, that would be great. But look, the prognosis is okay, I'm going to be fine.
"I've just got to tuck in, look after myself, eat sensibly and get over this mess, flog books, and be a happy person so within that, that's where I am.
"I may be a baldy biker for a while so it's just a warning, I don't want to make a fuss about it, I look alright bald actually."

His co-star Si said: "No listen, when I first met you dude you looked like an upside down Hells Angel so I like that look, I've always liked that look, you look cool."
Dave replied: "Yeah I know, and under different circumstances I would embrace it more but I feel under these circumstances it's simply something I have to live with."
Dave also quipped that his wife likened his new look to "Stanley Tucci who's been sleeping behind the library for a month".
He said: "As a great fan of Stanley Tucci, I've embraced that. I quite like it really. I've got the beard. Nice, fresh for the summer."
