BUSINESSMAN and TV Dragon Duncan Bannatyne said the stress of divorce led to him collapsing with a suspected heart attack.

The 63-year-old was rushed to hospital suffering from chest pains earlier this month. But he said it was the stress of separating from second wife Joanne McCue, not his business, that caused him to collapse.

He said: “The businesses are all going really well, that is not a problem.

“It is the divorce. I have a High Court date coming up.”

Mr Bannatyne was found by his secretary on the floor of his office after experiencing “pain like no other”.

He was rushed to hospital where he was told he had suffered a stress heart 
attack.

He is now back to work.
