BBC Dragons’ Den star Theo Paphitis says…

“After nine intense and fun packed series working with the BBC and the Dragons’ Den team, sadly it’s time for me to say for the final time “I am out”.

This has not been an easy decision, or one that I have taken lightly, but with the workload involved in growing my exciting successful new lingerie brand Boux Avenue, both in the UK and internationally, along with my recent purchase of the Robert Dyas retail chain, and the running of 240 Ryman Stationary shops, the time felt right to give up my seat, stop breathing fire and allow someone else to enjoy the wonderful experience of being a Dragon on the BBC hit TV show, Dragons’ Den.

So, it just leaves it for me to say thank you to all past and present Dragons, the brilliant production teams that made the show what it is, and of course the BBC for allowing me to participate in the first place.

Thank you Auntie, I am out.

P.s. A big good luck to the new dragons!”

You will be greatly missed Theo…but you’ll be pleased to know he is very much ‘still in’ when it comes to WedgeWelly.

Theo Paphitis says “The WedgeWelly is a very exciting product, it’s been designed to be both practical and stylish. It elevates the foot by 1½ inches, however gives the illusion of a higher, more sophisticated looking heel.”
