A TELEVISION star is on the mend today after being discharged from hospital following a health scare.

Dragons’ Den star Duncan Bannatyne, of Wynyard, was admitted to Darlington Memorial Hospital on Monday, after suffering what doctors feared was a heart attack.

But medical tests have since indicated that this was not the case and have ordered the 63-year-old to rest.

Mr Bannatyne, who runs a number of fitness centres, hotels and spas as well as starring on the hit BBC Two show, fell ill during a gym session at his headquarters in Darlington on Monday.
