Gemma Cairney would love to present a 'Dragons' Den' spin-off show.

The 29-year-old radio DJ loves watching the BBC TV series and has always been keen to host a side project entitled 'Gem's Den', in which she could interview the successful entrepreneurs.

She exclusively told BANG Showbiz: "I've always fancied doing a spin-off of 'Dragons' Den', called 'Gem's Den'. I would speak to all of the peeps, like the Levi Roots of the future.

"I suggest a lot of things. I suggest at the speed of light, to my own detriment, mad ideas. I come up with things.

"Who knows, it could be on the new BBC Three when it relaunches. I'm up for anything."

While Gemma is known for her presenting skills both on radio and TV as well as her DJ-ing, she has recently turned her hand to party planning and admits she would love to write a sitcom one day.

She added: "I'd love to write a sitcom. I love writing things and I'd love to do it more. I'm quite like a spinning top at the moment, I have been for the last six years.

"To sit my bum down and write a sitcom would be really lovely and a triumph for me. The discipline of writing is something I've been intrigued by. I'd quite like to write a book as well."

Gemma's latest party planning project has seen her team up with Tia Maria who she has curated events for throughout the year, and she is grateful for the company for letting her be "bossy" while working on the bashes.

She explained: "Any project I work on I really try and offer genuine creative input and I'm quite bossy like that.

"I've really enjoyed working with Tia Maria across the year for that reason that they've let me do that."

Gemma Cairney brings the Tia Maria Dark Room to a close during London's Cocktail Week with a party she curated at Dray Walk Gallery tonight (09.10.14) and tomorrow (10.10.14). Visit for further details on how to sign up.
