TV star and entrepreneur Duncan Bannatyne has suffered a suspected heart attack while working in his office. The 63-year-old wealthy star of Dragons' Den remains in hospital this evening after falling ill at the headquarters of his gym company in the town. His company spokesman said earlier:
His daughter said he was in a "stable" condition this evening, which he confirmed by sending a cheerful tweet from his hospital bed.
The former Royal Navy stoker began his business empire with an ice cream van, before setting up a chain of care homes. The TV entrepreneur has written five self-help books and was awarded an OBE for his charity work.
