Debbie talks dirty in the Dragon’s Den
The moment came as an entrepreneur from Derby pitched his business on BBC show Dragons’ Den.
Edward Hollands was trying to find an investor for his advertising business, however, he inadvertently started a massive furore when he revealed where he lived.
Touker Suleyman asked the young businessman where he was from, to which Edward replied “Derby”.
“It’s in the North,” Jenny Campbell chipped in.
WE ARE MIDLANDERS WE AREN’T FROM THE NORTH
However, those watching at home were quick to disagree with Jenny, 56, and were outraged by her statement.
“WE ARE MIDLANDERS WE AREN’T FROM THE NORTH #DragonsDen,” one fumed on Twitter.
While another questioned: “Hmm as a honorary northerner, isn’t Derby in the Midlands?! #Dragonsden.”
“#derby is not The North!! #dragonsden,” a third exclaimed.
“Derby is not in the north, it’s in the midlands #dragonsden,” another fan asserted.
To add insult to serious injury, Touker, 64, then said it was “disappointing” that he lived in Derby.
“Shame you lived in Derby lol that’s so rude #dragonsden,” one wrote.
“Ain’t nothing wrong with Derby mate #DragonsDen,” a second stated.
While another said: “It’s disappointing you live in Derby, I’m out” WHAAAT?! Never been so insulted #dragonsden”
However, Touker explained that it was disappointing because he would have liked to have had Edward come into his office every day, but that Derby was too far away.
Despite the hubbub online, Edward managed to strike a deal with Jenny and the two agreed to go into business together.
