BRITAIN’S favourite furry foodies The Hairy Bikers are coming back to WGC this month – and you could be first in line to meet them.

Yes, TV cooks Dave Myers and Si King will be returning to Maher The Bookseller in WGC just over a year since their last appearance, and will be signing copies of their latest recipe book – The Hairy Bikers’ Best-Loved Recipes: Mums Still Know Best!

A follow-up to last year’s Mums Know Best, the book features more than 100 new recipes, which the hirsute duo have gathered during their travels across the UK, visiting families and uncovering their best kept 
cooking secrets.

“We’re delighted that the Hairy Bikers are coming back to us,” said Tony Maher, owner of Maher The Bookseller.

“They’re really lovely guys, who were well received last time and we’re really looking forward to having them here for a second time.”

A new eight-part BBC2 series of Mums Know Best will follow the release of the book in March – but you, of course, can get your hands on a copy and be first in line to meet the pilose pair when they hit the Howard Centre on Friday, February 18.

We’ve teamed up with Maher The Bookseller to give one lucky reader a free copy of the new book (worth £20) and a VIP pass straight to the front of the queue to get it signed by the boys.

To be in with a chance of winning, simply answer the following question:

Which of the following is one of The Hairy Bikers?

a) Gordon Ramsey

b) Si King

c) Jamie Oliver
