Duncan Bannatyne, the former Dragons’ Den star, was spotted in Miami looking quite different from his usual self. The 74-year-old businessman traded in his sharp suits for a snazzy pink leopard print shirt and a fedora, which he proudly showcased on his Instagram. To complete the ensemble, he wore burgundy shorts, matching loafers, and a collection of silver necklaces. Duncan, who appeared on the BBC investment series from 2005 to 2015, also sported tinted shades as he ran errands close to his Miami home. He captioned the post, “A day out in very hot hot hot Miami.”
In June, Duncan and his wife Nigora celebrated their sixth wedding anniversary with a romantic getaway to Paris, France. The couple shared a series of loved-up photos from their trip on Nigora’s Instagram. They enjoyed a delicious breakfast of eggs and fruit before indulging in a champagne-filled lunch on their hotel balcony. The pictures captured their affection for each other, with Duncan wearing denim shorts and a light pink shirt while Nigora stunned in a white summer dress. They even took a sweet elevator selfie, with Duncan tenderly cradling Nigora’s tummy.
Nigora also shared snapshots of herself on the balcony with the Eiffel Tower in the background, as well as a photo of the couple enjoying macaroons and pastries later in the day. Captioning the photos, Nigora wrote, “Paris with my love #weddinganniversary.” This is Duncan’s third marriage, following his previous unions with Gail Brodie and Joanne McCue. He has four children with Gail and two with Joanne, while Nigora is also a parent to her daughter Gabrielle from a previous relationship.
Duncan and Nigora’s love story began in 2015 when they first started dating after meeting at the dental surgery where Nigora worked. Duncan proposed to Nigora in 2016 with a £40k ring in Monte Carlo, and they tied the knot in Portugal the following year before enjoying a honeymoon in Croatia. Duncan has spoken openly about his deep love for Nigora, describing himself as “obsessed” with her from the moment they met.
While the couple has expressed their desire to have children together, Nigora admits that she isn’t sure if it will happen. She shared, “We tried, but I don’t think we are going to have children. We’re not trying to prevent it from happening, so if it did, great, but I don’t think it is going to.” Despite the uncertainty, they remain positive and are not stressing about it or pursuing fertility treatments like IVF.
Duncan Bannatyne’s Miami outing and romantic Parisian getaway with Nigora showcase a lighter side of the renowned businessman, proving that even successful entrepreneurs can enjoy some fun in the sun and cherish moments of love and happiness.
