19 Oct Deborah Meaden Still Suffering After Strictly
In 2013, Deborah Meaden appeared on the hit series Strictly Come Dancing. This is the popular BBC series in which celebrities pair with professional dancers to battle it out for the win. However, the effects of her time on this show are still very much apparent today.
Deborah revealed recently that she’s still physically suffering from the many hours spent dancing and training on Strictly. She confessed that she still has ‘permanent pain in the balls of [my] feet.’ For which she needs regular steroid injections. She attributes the pain to spending 10 hours each day dancing. This was in preparation for the weekly episodes. It certainly does sound grueling.
She went on to say that everyone was injured in some way on the show. However, her pain has now stuck around for 5 years, with the steroid injections meant to be administered every 6 weeks. Though Deborah also revealed that she waits until the pain is too much to deal with before going back for another injection. We think this is typical of her determined nature.
New Series of Dragon’s Den
As the news of Deborah’s suffering comes to light, the new series of Dragon’s Den comes to a close after 6 episodes. These took everyone involved on an emotional journey. There was laughter at gin infused with collagen, fights over a drone company, and a man who wouldn’t let his mental health stand in the way of creating a successful business. Deborah was once again on the show, as she has been since 2006. She remains the dragon to have invested the most money in business-hopefuls.
