Sharon Wright with James Caan and Duncan Ballatyne
Two years on from her Den pitch when James Caan and Duncan Ballatyne chose to 'invest' in her cable threading business, Sharon has written a book on her experience entitled "Mother of Invention - How I Won Dragon’s Den, Lost My Mind, Nearly Lost My Business and Ended Up Reinventing Myself", a heartfelt expose of the events that happened to her once she had agreed to accept the Dragon's cash.
"Horrendous, best sums it up," Sharon told over a hundred and fifty guests at the De Vere Village.
"Duncan [Ballatyne] I don't have a problem with but I'm currently suing James Caan after what happened."
Afterwards SWTV grabbed a word with Sharon - see video above.
