‘He was close to death, it was the worst year of my life’: Dragons’ Den star Hilary Devey opens up about helping her son beat heroin addiction

Hilary Devey, the latest Dragon to join BBC show Dragons’ Den, has revealed her best investment yet was spending more than £500,000 to help her son beat drug addiction.
The self-made multi-millionaire has revealed her son, Mevlit, became a heroin addict at the age of 17 and helping him overcome his demons was the hardest thing she has ever had to do.
‘That was the worst year of my life. It was harder than any business,’ she told this week’s Grazia magazine. ‘I had no idea he had a drug problem until I watched a film about a heroin addict called Chasing The Dragon, and it clicked.’
