Duncan Bannatyne has revealed he is hoping to have his seventh child, and it could happen sooner rather than later.

The former Dragons’ Den star and father-of-six, 66, has been dating dental receptionist Nigora Whitehorn for three months, and the couple are already looking forward to having a family together.

“We’re trying! Well, we’re not doing anything to prevent it,” he told OK! magazine.

Duncan said he fell in love at first sight with Nigora, when he first saw her at his Harley Street dentist’s surgery.

“I spotted her in there one day while getting some crowns done. Just as I was building up the courage to speak to her, the buzzer went for my appointment,” he recalled.

“When I went home I couldn’t stop thinking about her, I felt obsessed! I felt in love with her.”

Nigora, 35, added: “On day one. He was like: ‘I’m madly in love with you.’ I thought he was joking and was speechless!”
