Star of Dragons' Den, Duncan Bannatyne, has been rushed to hospital in an ambulance after suffering a suspected heart attack but that hasn't stopped the tough businessman from Tweeting.

"Today was my first trip inside an Ambulance & with siren wailing. Hope it is the last. LoL"

A spokesperson said earlier; "Everyone is very concerned and upset, but we know that Duncan is a very strong person and we are confident he will make a full recovery.

Everyone wishes him well. We'd like to thank the quick and professional actions of the paramedics who attended to Duncan and thank the staff at the Memorial Hospital for his ongoing care."

63 year old Bannatyne was taken ill at his office but expects to be back at work in no-time.

On Twitter he told his followers; “Hi. In hospital attached to a few wires feeling tired but am sure I will be discharged tomorrow fit & well (fit a pensioner can be anyway)”
