'Dragons' Den' star Duncan Bannatyne's life is being turned into a musical.

The business entrepreneur, who is a mentor on the reality show, is set to see his life depicted on the stage in an unauthorised adaptation of his autobiography 'Anyone Can Do It' - which follows his journey from ice cream man to multimillionaire businessman.

Director Gordon McDougall said: "I don't know what Duncan will think of it as he's quite unpredictable. I hope he thinks it's a good idea. He's been quite open about his life so I don't see a need to hide anything. He's a significant figure in the area, hopefully he'll come to see it."

The all-singing, all-dancing show will launch in November in Shepton Mallet, Somerset, and will include Duncan's personal trials and tribulations - including an affair he had in 1987 - as well as his business dilemmas.

The 61-year-old Scotsman became important to the area, after his company Bannatyne Group bought a struggling hotel and saved 62 jobs locally.

Duncan is also believed to be about to launch his own reality TV show, 'Homeless Hotel', where 10 homeless people will compete for a job in one of his spa hotels in Hastings, East Sussex.
