Meet Dragons' Den star Hilary Devey's Husband Philip Childs & Family Amid Tragic News Of Her Death

Hilary Devey, a former Dragons' Den star, died at the age of 65.

Her publicist revealed on Sunday that the English businesswoman and entrepreneur died in Morocco on Saturday after a protracted illness. Ms. Devey received a CBE in 2013 for her contributions to the transport business and philanthropy.

Before departing to anchor the Channel 4 program The Intern, she was recognized for her appearances on the long-running BBC investment show Dragons' Den.

Hilary Devey's Husband Philip Childs 

At a 70-second hearing at the High Court in 2013, the 55-year-old haulage tycoon, Hilary Devey, famed for her flashy manner, dissolved her two-year marriage to property developer Philip Childs.

Her divorce, which was based on both parties' unreasonable behavior, comes after the divorces of fellow Dragons' Den entrepreneurs Duncan Bannatyne and Peter Jones.

Mr. Bannatyne, who acquired an £85 million fortune through his fitness clubs, announced on Twitter that he had to lay off workers due to the cost of his divorce from his second wife Joanne McCue.

Ms. Devey stated that she would never remarry, calling her most recent divorce perhaps one of the most unhappy moments of her life. Just as she said, she did not think of tying the knot in the 8 years she lived after that, or at least she refrained from it. 

She had grieved about it at that time saying, knowing that a third relationship has failed is really difficult and because she can't seem to get it right with males, she was wounded, furious, and a little perplexed.

Hilary Devey's Net Worth At The Time Of Her Death

Hilary Devey has an estimated net worth of $80 million at the time of her demise.

She was an English entrepreneur and TV personality who amassed wealth as a result of her ability to spot fresh possibilities and successfully mix business with celebrity status on television.


Devey was still a child when she had no option but to see her family's horrible bankruptcy experience. But, as a result of that encounter, she became more motivated than ever to achieve. She was inspired to start her first business while working at the Women's Royal Air Force's air traffic control.

Ms. Devey announced in 2012 that she was living alone with her kid from a previous marriage. Her property, a wing of opulent Rangemore Hall on the outskirts of Burton-on-Trent with a swimming pool and gym, was up for sale for £1,950,000.
