Duncan Bannatyne hints he's set to tie knot for third time
Duncan Bannatyne has hinted he's set to marry his new girlfriend.
The 'Dragon's Den' star was hit by allegations he'd threatened to post naked pictures of his ex-girlfriend Michelle Evans online on the weekend but he's now revealed he's unfazed by the claims, which he claims are false, as he's "madly in love" with dental treatment coordinator Nigora Whitehorn.
Asked if he's "bitter" about the recent "kiss and tell", Duncan said: "You don't feel bitter when you're madly in love. I feel like an excited school boy."
Nigora - who met Duncan when he visited the Harley Street dental practice where she works - dismissed Michelle's claims that he refused to pay for meals and made her split the bill, while the 66-year-old star joked that they could be set to walk down the aisle soon.
She told ITV's 'This Morning': "He's the most generous man I've ever met in my life and I've never felt any of that so, for me, it was big shock to read ... I'm very much in love."
Duncan interrupted, adding: "Get your hats ready!"
However, the Scottish entrepreneur - who has daughters Abigail, Hollie, Jennifer and Eve with first wife Gail and daughter Emily and son Thomas with his second wife Joanne McCue - confessed he's yet to introduce Nigora to his children.
Quizzed on whether she'd met his family, he said: "No. Friday she's coming to my house."
Duncan also admitted he became "obsessed" with the brunette beauty before they even started dating and was plotting ways he could get to see her again.
He explained: "I'd spoken to her [at the dental surgery] and I thought, she's so beautiful and I was falling in love with her even then and I spent about two weeks at home thinking about her like, I need to see this woman again, and I thought, I'm going to go back and say I've got a problem with my tooth, and I was sitting there thinking about all these things.
"I was obsessed with her and she didn't know and then I went to the doctors which is near Harley Street to get an X-ray and I'm walking back across the zebra crossing and I see her on the other side of the street."
