Dragons’ Den star Sara Davis, 37, met her husband Simon 22 years ago. The mum-of-two has since said their relationship caused quite a stir when they began dating in their late teens.

Sara, who was youngest investor in the show’s history when she joined the show, said the couple are still “madly in love” with each other after many years of marriage.

She said their relationship was built on mutual respect and admiration.

When asked how she met her husband, Sara revealed they started dating when she was still at school.

“I was 15 and Simon was 19. So it was quite the scandal at the time, I can tell you!”

“He was the star of our local cricket team and I remember him coming over and asking for my number,” she told this week’s OK! magazine.

“I was like, ‘Oh my God!’

“He was my first boyfriend and I was his first girlfriend,” she went on to explain.

The couple, who tied the knot in 2007, are now the proud parents to two children – Oliver and Charlie.

Sara joined the cast of Dragons’ Den in 2019, 13 years after being invited to pitch on the show.

The BBC programme sees entrepreneurs present business ideas to a panel of millionaires, who are looking to invest their own money.

Sara is joined on the show by original cast member Peter Jones, as well as Deborah Meaden, Touker Suleyman and Steven Bartlett.

She said the show is the “absolute best place” to find good investments.

The BBC star launched her own business Crafter’s Companion to capitalise on her passion for arts and crafts after discovering a gap in the market.

She designed a tool to make bespoke envelopes.

The product is now exported to over 40 countries around the world.

It reportedly turns over £34 million a year.

Not bad for a venture that was set up in her bedroom when she was a student at the University of York.

In addition to her own success, Sara also helps other women in business.

She has a mentoring role with the Entrepreneurs’ Forum, an organisation championing North East entrepreneurs.

Recognising her work, she was appointed a Member of the Order of the British Empire (MBE) for services to the economy in 2016.
