Dragons’ Den star Sara Davies and contestant break down in tears in ‘most emotional moment ever on show’ | The Sun

DRAGONS' Den star Sara Davies was reduced to tears in the most emotional moment ever' on the BBC show.

The Hartlepool-born entrepreneur, 38, became the show's youngest ever Dragon at 35 when she replaced Jenny Campbell in the 17th series, which aired in August 2019.


In one episode from her first year on the show, Sara was left in tears alongside Touker Suleyman as they listened to entrepreneur Will Chew's heart-breaking pitch.

Will wanted an investment of £50,000 funding and support for his brand Mak Tok’s Authentic Chilli Pastes – inspired by his mothers own recipe.

He told the Dragons how he missed his mother's cooking and Malaysian chilli paste while he studied in the UK, so she sent him some ingredients to make his own.

It struck a chord with Sara when she asked him why he had come on the show.

Will said: "Your expertise and your contacts. I suffer from social anxiety, so I'm not the best person to go out there and talk to people and I'm not great at phoning up people. I get really, really scared to do that.

"But what I can do is stand in front of people and tell people about my product and my little story."

The Dragons chose not to invest in the business – but Sara did. As she welled up, she told him: "I just think someone needs to give you that break."

She then offered him all of the money – £50,000 – for a third of the business, rather than the 20 percent Will had originally offered.
