Jenny Campbell has quit "Dragon's Den".

The 57-year-old entrepreneur has been a "Dragon" on the BBC Two investment show since series 15 in 2017, but has decided that she wants to focus on her work for the Prince's Trust Enterprise Fellowship Programme, which sees the businesswoman help the next generation make their business ideas a reality.

She also wants to help her grownup sons, Rik, who is the co-founder of London restaurant Kricket, and Tom, with their respective business "journeys".

Jenny - who sold her ATM company YourCash for £50 million - admitted it was a "tough" decision to make, but said she will still be working with the people she invested in, including the skincare brand Carun UK and energy-saving firm Look After My Bills.

She said: "Having been a fan of "Dragons Den" since it first aired in 2005 I was absolutely delighted and proud to have the opportunity of becoming a Dragon myself.
