We've done some mad sh*t!!! 25 years of hairy biking with Si King
He makes up exactly 50% of TV duo The Hairy Bikers, and along with partner in crime Dave Myers, is one of the nicest men in show business. Sadly Mr Myers couldn't join the chat as he's currently undergoing hospital treatment, so Jason and Dave enjoyed a very pleasant hairy chinwag with Mr King, talking biking and baking and everything in between!
French fancies with Alex Riley
Stand up comedian, presenter, writer and journalist, Alex Riley is a man of many talents, and it's his many talents that have resulted in a career path that has been colourful and at times unorthodox. At the heart of it all, Alex is obsessed with cars and has been since he was a little boy, and is now fulfilling the dream of presenting a programme on telly all about cars and their history! 'The Car Years' on ITV would appear to be tailor made for Alex Riley, but his motoring passions will surprise some of you, and he's certainly the most committed automotive Francophile Jason and Dave have met to date.
Dream Drives Along The Amalfi Coast with Paul Hollywood
GBBO star Paul Hollywood has a passion for baking, but away from the kitchen, cars and bikes are what get his pulse racing. Having competed on track in Aston Martins and being the proud owner of a collection of truly delicious wheels, Paul chats to Jason and Dave about his automotive journey over the years, from humble beginnings to dream drives along the beautiful Amalfi coast.
Making an impression with Jon Culshaw

Mike Brewer, the ultimate wheeler dealer!
The boys are back with a brand new series and who better to kick off with than a man who’s apparently Dave’s guilty pleasure! Mike Brewer has been trading cars on our screens for the last 25 years, and as a big mate of Jason’s and possibly the ultimate petrolhead, he could just be the perfect guest!
