Strictly star Sara, 39, has previously revealed to Express.co.uk about how guests have changed the show’s dynamic and how the Dragons adapted to them being on set She said: “We had to fit an extra chair in which wasn’t easy!
“It sounds ridiculous but having six of us talking on top of each other instead of five was actually quite a challenge. It meant that all the pitches took quite a bit longer so we scheduled to do less in a day.
“I know when I was the new Dragon, I can still remember quite succinctly what it was like and the steep learning curve you go through. So, it was like onboarding a new Dragon but you have to do it in a few hours not over a few days. It was a really quick learning curve.”
During her four years as part of the panel, she’s seen hundreds of entrepreneurs presenting a huge range of ideas to her and the other Dragons- and no day is the same in their job.
Now, ahead of the new series set to hit screens next year, Sara’s reveals in an exclusive interview with OK! that she was asked to be on the show when she had just started her crafting business.
She was already enjoying success and had more than £100k in the bank but wanted some expert advice from the Dragons.
“In the early days of my business, years before I had anything to do with Dragons’ Den, I was actually asked to go on the show,” she reveals.
“I was doing pretty well already though, so when they asked me, ‘How much money do you need and how much of your business do you want to give away?’ I said that I didn’t want any money, I just wanted the expertise. That’s not what they were looking for then though.”
But she admits she owes the programme a great deal. “I’m very lucky that Dragons’ Den has made my profile so much bigger, but I feel a responsibility towards the craft industry. It has given me this wonderful business so it’s time for me to give back a little bit. I want as many people as possible crafting this Christmas.”
