Alongside a photo of himself and Dave smiling, Si wrote: “Dave and I were so chuffed to be nominated once again for the Fortnum & Mason Food Personality of the Year Award for the 4th year running.

“Dave was so proud of this award, particularly because it’s voted for by our loyal followers and fans, the people who matter most to us.”

We’ll also keep you updated on the events and projects which will live on.

He went on: “It’s really strange for us all not to have Dave around but for now, we will keep posting on the Hairy Bikers socials to keep in touch with all those people who have been so kind over many years and particularly in recent weeks.

“We’ll also keep you updated on the events and projects which will live on and I look forward to seeing as many of you as possible at some of the Summer festivals this year. Si x.”

Fans shared their messages of support for Si in the comment section. One person said: “Congratulations so pleased for you. I’m so sorry Dave isn’t with us anymore. Sending you a big hug. Condolences on your loss of your good mate.”

Si announced Dave’s death in February, saying his friend died “peacefully at home” with Si, his wife Liliana and other family members around him.

Si previously addressed whether he’d ever do the Hairy Bikers TV shows without Dave. In 2016, Si told the Express: “I probably would [quit] I wouldn’t want to make shows that Dave and I make. That would be it. I wouldn’t have it in my heart and soul, we were the Hairy Bikers. He’s like my brother.”
