“Truth be told – I haven’t got a clue! I’ve not danced since I did ballet lessons when I was little. The business world has taught me that tenacity, drive and determination deliver results, I hope that I can bring that to the dance floor. And I’m excited to see the impact of all those hours of training on my mum tum!”
Davies, who is the founder of Crafts Companion, joined the Dragons Den line-up in 2019, replacing Jenny Campbell and becoming the youngest entrepreneur to join the panel at the time.
The upcoming series of Strictly Come Dancing will see the show’s first male couple, with former Bake Off star John Whaite set to take to the dance floor with professional Graziano Di Prima after boxer Nicola Adams danced with Katya Jones last year, becoming the show’s first ever all-female couple.
