Sara Davies will be hoping to better the performance of fellow Dragon Deborah Meaden who took part in the show in 2013 lasting 7 weeks before being eliminated on October 26th.
It just looks like the most amazing experience. When Deborah [Meadon] was on it, I hoped one day that could be me.

FINALLY! You have idea how long I have had to keep this a secret for - it's killed me! I'm so excited that the news is out!— Sara Davies (@SaraDaviesCC) August 9, 2021

Tom Daley's Rumour and Desire
Rumours abound about the possibility of Tom Daley becoming one of the contestant for the show, and his announcement would surely lead to him being the favourite with bookmakers, or at last towards the head of the market.
If Daley were announced he would almost certainly be installed as instant bookmakers' favourite and in the running for a Strictly and SPOTY double!

Strictly Come Dancing producers have confirmed that there will be an all-male pairing this year with John Thwaite being confirmed for that position, so Daley's fans hoping for that possibility will be disappointed.
No doubt Daley, who is also favourite to win BBC Sports Personality of the Year, would be a popular contestant.
Since his recent Gold Medal success at the Olympic Games in Tokyo, a favourite of the housewives for years would surely be a very popular member of the line-up, his athleticism will surely stand him in good stead for the gruelling work required to win the show.

Tom Fletcher Still a Firm Favourite on Betting Sites
The inclusion of Sara Davies and recent support for Robert Webb have not affected Tom Fletcher's solid place as favourite to follow in his wife's reality TV success in the last season of I'm a Celebrity Get Me Out Of Here!
He would of course be the second McFly winner were he to succeed following drummer Harry Judds success ten years ago in 2011.
