Dragon’s Den stars argue over non-dom tax status

Bannatyne believes Caan is now in direct competition with himself in the
health club industry, after Caan acquired five health clubs in the UK.

In a quote that the BBC said had been removed from the Daily

made by my businesses, I am clearly at an unfair disadvantage.”

In a statement in the Evening Standard earlier this week, Caan said:
“I do not apologise for my country of origin, Pakistan.”
