The Manchester United legend and Sky Sports pundit will be a 'Guest Dragon' on series 21 of the business show.

This is the first look at Gary Neville as part of the Dragons' Den line-up. The Manchester United legend and Sky Sports pundit, who has also forged a hugely successful career away from the game as a property developer, business and football club owner, has signed up to be part of the 2024 series in his latest TV venture.

Neville is one of the first ever 'Guest Dragons' alongside Emma Gerde. They’ll be sitting alongside Den heavyweights Peter Jones, Deborah Meaden, Touker Suleyman, Sara Davies, and Steven Bartlett in series 21 of the BBC One primetime show which is filmed in Manchester.

The scenes of entrepreneurs pitching for investment in their fledgling businesses were shot over the summer with the show expected to air in the new year.

Neville said: "It’s a pleasure to join the Dragons as a guest for the new series and see some of the amazing pitches from budding entrepreneurs from different walks of life. It was a privilege to share my knowledge and guidance with the brave entrepreneurs who entered the Den, but you’ll have to wait and see whether I committed to any investments!”

Samantha Davies, executive producer, BBC Studios, said: “In our 21st series it’s hugely exciting to bring a fresh, new dynamic to the Den in the form of Guest Dragons. Gary and Emma are both masters in their fields and it’ll be fantastic to see their different styles and perspectives in the business world. But our existing Dragons aren’t just going to sit back and let them snap up all the best deals, so viewers can expect all the usual competitiveness and sass in the Den.”
