STAFF at Ulverston’s St Mary’s Hospice will be hoping Hairy Biker Dave Myers’s general knowledge is as good as his cooking when he appears on a popular quiz show.

The former TV and film make-up artist, who lives in Barrow-in-Furness, will test his knowledge on ITV’s Celebrity Who Wants to be a Millionaire?

He has declared St Mary’s as his nominated charity when he appears on screen alongside Countdown mathematician Rachel Riley.

Myers has already demonstrated nifty foot work on the last series of Strictly Come Dancing in which he was the sixth celebrity to be voted off. Now it’s the turn for his ‘little grey cells’.

Who Wants to be a Millionaire producers say he will be featured on the programme either on January 28 or February 4.
