Duncan Bannatyne, 70, cuddles up to stunning wife Nigora Whitehorn, 38, on the beach in Barbados

February 3, 2019

The entrepreneur, 70, looked trim in a patterned pair of shorts as Nigora planted a kiss on his cheek.

Nigora planted an affectionate hand on Duncan's bare chest and cosied into him, putting a smile on his face.

The beauty looked great in a dark green bikini and a pair of vintage white shades.

The couple looked smitten as they soaked up the sun and shared laughs in the surf.

They arrived on the beach holding hands, with Nigora wearing a lightweight green cover up and Duncan in a smart white shirt with sleeves rolled up.

Duncan might be enjoying a luxury break in the Caribbean, but he has no plans to retire just yet.

He previously said: “Life is so good at the moment that I just don’t see any reason to change it.

“My business still runs with eight directors who do a great job where they report the monthly accounts to me and I call them once a week at the very most.

“I can’t imagine selling the company — having a lot of money and not knowing what to do with it, I like having the company and being involved.”

Duncan, who married Nigora three years ago and set up home in Portugal, says Scottish tea tycoon Thomas Lipton is his hero, with both sharing an inspiring rags-to-riches story.

He said: “I’m completely fascinated by him. He was born into abject poverty in the Gorbals and built up what was probably the UK’s first supermarket chain before building tea plantations and warehouses in America.

“This was before people travelled the world as much as they do now — he was going to America by boat, back and forth."

Duncan, who suffers from dyslexia, believes his idol also had the condition.

He adds: “We both came from very similar backgrounds and, though I have no evidence, I think he was dyslexic as well. It’s different now as you can be recognised as being dyslexic but I think to the day he died he didn’t realise that’s what it was.

"He left school at a young age to start a business like I did. I left at 15. At 12 he was already going down the docks to get provisions to bring back to his father’s shop.

“I’m jealous of his amazing charisma, he had more than I could ever have and such a joyful chap.”
