Kelly HoppenWith Hilary Devey and Theo Paphitis leaving Dragon’s Den, there’s are gaps to fill.

And the first of their replacements has been announced – interior designer Kelly Hoppen, 53.

Kelly says, ‘I’m looking forward to bringing a different perspective into the Den and to hopefully finding an undiscovered gem or two. I have always been passionate about championing entrepreneurs.’

‘So being able to take it to the next level by investing my money in innovative new businesses is very exciting. Having started my design business as a teenager, building a global brand through two recessions, I understand the reality of running a creative business.’

We can’t wait to see her in action!
