Sara is a businesswoman who founded her craft supplier company, Crafter’s Companion, in 2005 while studying for a business degree at York University.

It was her ground-breaking product called The Enveloper that she designed and marketed that put her on the map – selling over 8,000 in the first 24 hours of being debuted on shopping channel Ideal World.

By the time she had graduated with her degree – with first-class honours no less – she had a business with a turn over of over half a million pounds.

Sara is now worth a staggering £37M, and has the lifestyle and mansion to prove it.

Sara was unveiled today on Good Morning Britain as the sixth contestant to join this year’s Strictly.

Speaking to Kate Garraway and Ben Shephard about keeping the Strictly reveal a secret, she said: “What I’m dying to know is, did [her mum and dad] guess from the reveal before the break, my sister is in there now.

“Keeping it from them has been the hardest thing.”

Sara also spoke of her excitement, adding: “Honestly, my whole life from being a tiny little girl, you watch it every Saturday, the costumes, it just looks like the most amazing experience. But it always felt like a pipedream.

“Until I joined the Dragons’ Den panel, because of course Deborah [Meaden] done it. And Deborah would talk about it. I thought, it could, it could. I didn’t dare to dream, but I hope one day.”

On her dancing abilities, she said: “I’m really, really good when I’ve had a drink on a Saturday night.

“Other than that, I’m not so sure. I did ballet lessons when I was a little girl like most little girls do. I’ve never danced since.

“The producers were saying when they were casting for the show, can you dance? Can you dance? I actually said, I have no idea, I haven’t done it since I was about ten.”


Meanwhile, Strictly bosses have begun to unveil the stars taking part in the BBC show’s 19th series later this year.

Bake Off star John Whaite will dance with a man, while other celebs taking to the dance floor include Robert Webb, McFly’s Tom Fletcher and AJ Odudu.

CBBC presenter Rhys Stephenson was also announced on Friday.
