Deborah Meaden, who stars on Dragons’ Den, reacted to a Twitter user after they addressed her recent injury. The 62-year-old revealed she had fractured her wrist after attempting to mount the steed of her horse without a block but admitted “she couldn’t”.
Taking to the micro-blogging site, Deborah posted a photo from her hospital bed, smiling widely as she showed off her plaster cast as the businesswoman heaped praise on the NHS.
In view of her 450,000 followers, she penned: “I know you know but our #NHS is blooming brilliant. Went in with a fractured wrist. Several x rays,manipulation under painkillers with a reassuring voice in my ear and I leave with plastercast and wrist on the mend. Here with Becky and @Lowri_punc19 thankyouxxx.” [sic]
However, a social media user took aim at the entrepreneur as they questioned how the Dragon’s Den star was able to receive treatment so quickly.
The person in question wrote: “The NHS is amazing but I struggle to understand how you have had this procedure done in one day when a man recently on the news with a triple hernia which stops him working has been told it will be two years before his operation. My question is why?”
The Dragon’s Den star fired back: “Good because I wasn’t supposed to be wearing one.”
Meanwhile, celebrity pals and fans alike offered their well wishes to Deborah as they wished her a speedy recovery.
Theo Paphitis wrote: “A speedy recovery to you Deborah – you look like you’re in safe hands.”
GB News presenter Simon McCoy penned: “Wishing you well.”
Labour MP Jess Phillips commented: “Oh no, although tbf you look pretty cheerful. Hope it heals quickly.”
Deborah replied: “Thank you… although that may just be the painkillers. They strong!”
