Kelly Hoppen quits Dragon’s Den

by | Jan 25, 2015 | All, TV News

Kelly Hoppen has announced that she is to quit Dragon’s Den after just two series.

The interior designer joined the programme in 2013 as a replacement for Hilary Devey but will finish her tenure in the den when the newest run of episodes comes to an end.

Hoppen said of the news,  “After two great years as an investor on Dragons’ Den, I have decided the current series will be my last. I have had a brilliant time and made several successful investments.

“It has been a privilege to be part of a programme which champions entrepreneurs. However, due to a packed schedule and international commitments, including a new venture designing film sets, I sadly cannot commit to the filming schedule.

“I will continue to work and invest in young entrepreneurs. I have thoroughly enjoyed my time on Dragons’ Den and met many inspiring entrepreneurs along my journey. I will miss my fellow judges and I’m sure someone amazing will fill my seat.

“I wish everyone on the show the best luck. What’s left to say but, ‘I’m out’.”

Dragon’s Den returns tonight (25th January) on BBC Two at 9pm
