Duncan Bannatyne and new girlfriend trying for a baby

Duncan Bannatyne and Nigora Whitehorn are trying for a baby already.

The 'Dragons Den' star and his dental receptionist girlfriend have been together for just three months but are already hoping to start a family.

Duncan, 66, who has daughters Abigail, Hollie, Jennifer and Eve with first wife Gail and daughter Emily and son Thomas with his second wife Joanne McCue, told Britain's OK! magazine: "We're trying! Well, we're not doing anything to prevent it."

And they are also planning to tie the knot, with Nigora, 35, saying: "We might get married next year or it could be tomorrow - watch this space!"

Duncan met Nigora when he visited the Harley Street dental practice where she works and he insisted it was love at first sight for him.

He said: "I spotted her in there one day while getting some crowns done. Just as I was building up the courage to speak to her, the buzzer went for my appointment.

"When I went home I couldn't stop thinking about her, I felt obsessed! I felt in love with her."

When he later confessed his love, Nigora admitted she thought he was joking, explaining: "He was like, 'I'm madly in love with you.' I thought he was joking and was speechless!"
