Dragon Duncan thought about killing himself
5:49pm Sunday 15th September 2013 in News
DRAGON’S Den star Duncan Bannatyne has revealed how he considered suicide during recent personal problems.
In an interview with the Daily Mail, the entrepreneur, whose business is headquartered in Darlington, talked about standing on a railway station platform thinking of throwing himself in front of a train.
The newspaper is serialising the 64-year-old’s forthcoming second autobiography, in which he is expected to discuss his costly and heartbreaking divorce from second wife Joanne.
He said: “I’ve been on a train before when someone threw themselves in front of it.
“We were held up for three hours and I remember wondering what could lead someone to do something so terrible.
“But when it happened to me, I did understand. I was there.”
Asked what stopped him going through with it, he replied: “I have no idea. I just didn’t.”
