Gary Neville to join Dragons’ Den panel as guest
Gary Neville will appear as a guest dragon on the BBC TV series Dragons’ Den. I’m sure many of us would like to put our business ideas in front front of the former Manchester United right-back…
The former Manchester United captain will jump from football punditry to panellist on the reality business show, however, we will have to wait until next year for it to be broadcast.
This will make for a good watch because Neville is no stranger to the world of business.
The former England international co-owns Hotel Football in Manchester. Furthermore in 2014, he also bought into Salford City, and he remains a major shareholder in production house Buzz16.
However, he won’t be able to ask Peter Lim for any business advice this time around.
It is believed filming has begun in Manchester with Neville among the guest Dragons who will join regulars Peter Jones, Deborah Meaden, Touker Suleyman, Sara Davies and Steven Bartlett.
Neville said (via BBC): “I am excited to join the Dragons, and to meet the entrepreneurs brave enough to face us in the Den.
“I hope my personal journey shows that you can take the experiences you’ve had in one part of your career and use them to do something entirely different and make it a success.
“Business is all about managing people and managing yourself and I’m looking forward to sharing my experience to help the entrepreneurs we’ll meet in the Den reach their potential.”
All the best on Dragons’ Den, GNev!
