Meaden met her husband, Paul, in summer 1985, while he worked at Weststar during his university break. She didn’t want a family so they separated, but after she took a trip to Venezuela, she returned to London and they married in 1993.
The couple have no children, and live on a restored model farm in Somerset with numerous animals.
Here’s the 2019 cast of Dragons Den:
