Deborah Meaden is the second longest-serving Dragon on the show. She lives in Somerset with her husband Paul and while they don't have any children together, they have more than enough pets to keep their hands full.
Speaking to the Irish Times, Deborah said: "At the last count it was seven horses, three sheep, a pig, ducks, chickens, guinea fowl, three very angry geese as well as four dogs and two cats," adding: "We're often the first port of call for people who want to re-home animals. I get regular 'Deborah, would you mind...?' phone calls!"
