Dave appeared in good spirits as he sported a red flower print waistcoat, with the star punching the air as he told Matt: "It’s fantastic to be back and what a way to celebrate Christmas here.

"We’re going to be doing a coffee and hazelnut cake, it’s a symphony where nuts meet coffee.

"Honestly, it’s so good for Christmas, the angel Gabriel has wafted across your tonsils."

Fans were left in tears by Dave's appearance, with many flocking to social media to celebrate the return of the beloved TV chef to our screens.

"How lovely to see #DaveMyers back on TV. That's a Christmas pressie, right there," one commented, while another viewer tweeted: "Fabulous today and marvellous to see Dave Myers looking so well."

A third added: "God bless you Dave genuinely emotional seeing Dave Myers back on Saturday Kitchen and looking so well."

"Got a little teary seeing Dave Myers and Si together on Saturday Kitchen, it's so nice to see @HairyBikerstogether, and doing so well," said a fourth.

Speaking about a preview of Saturday Kitchen on BBC Breakfast, Dave opened up about his health, as he said "It's lovely to be back," but admitted that "there were some times when I didn't think I would be here for Christmas."

He also praised the medical team who had been looking after him, saying: "I’ve got to give a shout out to the doctors and nurses in Birmingham who put me back together, the surgeon who got me walking again and nurse Marion who, before my chemo, brings me cake in. Best banana bread ever.

"But it is lovely to be back. Si’s been looking after me, filling my freezer with mince and dumplings.

"Being back on Saturday Kitchen is great, I think the first time we were here was 15 years ago."
