Speaking to in 2016, Si addressed the future of The Hairy Bikers after suffering his own health ordeal years prior. When asked if he’d quit if Dave retired, Si said: “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.”

At the time of the interview, Si had opened up about how suffering an aneurysm had made him reflect on the future of his career.

I wouldn’t have it in my heart and soul, we were the Hairy Bikers. He’s like my brother.

Admitting that he wasn’t sure of his own recovery at the time, Si also detailed that he didn’t want to give up TV. However, it might have been a possibility. He added: “It is what I do, if I didn’t do this, what would I do?”
