Deborah Meaden revealed that people can’t believe their eyes when they spot her at second hand stores.

Despite her reported whopping net worth of £50million, your chances of spotting the Dragons’ Den businesswoman in Louis Vuitton are pretty slim.

The TV personality, 63, shared that she would rather get her wardrobe essentials from charity shops.

And she’s even influenced her BBC co-stars Steven Bartlett, Peter Jones, Touker Suleyman and Sara Davies.

‘I buy second-hand clothes,’ she said.

‘People do double-takes when they see me in charity shops.’

‘Now, everybody in the Den talks about sustainability, which pleases me,’ she added to The Mirror.

The star currently lives with her husband Paul at their Somerset mansion. 

Last year, Deborah urged others to be aware of changes to their body after herself ‘ignoring’ the signs before being diagnosed with skin cancer. 

She discovered a change with her skin while having her make-up done for Dragons’ Den more than seven years ago, and the timing couldn’t have been more fortunate. 

‘I was filming Dragon’s Den, and I don’t get spots, but my make-up artist had noticed what looked like a [tiny little] whitehead that had been on my face for probably about six weeks,’ Deborah explained. 

‘She kept saying, “That’s not right, Deborah”, and I thought, “OK that’s really weird, I don’t usually get spots”. I was going off to Africa and I thought, before I go, I just need to get that checked out.’ 

Sharing her experience with Vogue Williams on the Taboo Talk podcast, Deborah revealed she then sent a photo of the spot to her doctor and was told ‘it could be something, it might not, but it could be something’.
