Hailing from the North East, Si King is a large-hearted, proud and grounded Geordie with a passion for great food, travel and music.

He started his career as an Assistant Director and Locations Manager on numerous productions including the Harry Potter films and Byker Grove.

In 1994, Si met Dave on the set of Catherine Cookson’s The Gambling Man and, realising their strong mutual interests, the Hairy Bikers concept was written and subsequently commissioned.  The lads packed their panniers and embraced the opportunity to seek out new dishes from around the globe.

Twenty years later with over twenty top selling cookbooks and a successful podcast, The Hairy Bikers have achieved unrivalled success creating dishes all over the world with Michelin starred chefs to local villagers alike.

Si continues to live in the North East working hard to support the local community and charities he cares so passionately about.
