Duncan Bannatyne taken to hospital after dizzy spell

The Northern Echo: Duncan Bannatyne Duncan Bannatyne

DRAGONS Den entrepreneur Duncan Bannatyne was taken to hospital following a dizzy spell today.

The successful businessman who runs a chain of gyms and hotels based in Darlington, tweeted a picture of himself at North Tees General Hospital in Stockton, wearing a woolly hat.

After receiving treatment he said on Twitter: "Many thanks to North Tees Hospital for looking after me today."

Mr Bannatyne was allowed home after he underwent tests.

A spokeswoman for the TV personality said: "He was taken to hospital following a dizzy spell and they have checked him over.

"He praised the hospital staff and he expects to be at his desk in the morning."

Last year Mr Bannatyne, 64, was rushed to hospital following a heart scare.

After an acrimonious divorce, he is selling his home on the exclusive Wynyard estate.

So poor old Duncan's had a dizzy spell, hardly newsworthy, I had a dizzy spell a couple of weeks ago, did I go to hospital ? Did I bother my doctor ? Did I alert the press ? No, I sat down for a few minutes and it passed. This man is nothing but a loathesome self publicist, if his face hasn't been seen for a few days he makes sure he can engineer something so that he can get the Echo to bleat on about his divorce again. I was going to mention wasting NHS time but I expect that in spite of his poverty he can still afford to go private.
