Dragons Dens Hilary Deveys harrowing final post as she tells fans I am fine

Fans of Loose Women panellist and BBC's Dragon's Den star Hilary Devey have re-shared her final harrowing social media post in disbelief after her tragic death was confirmed on Sunday (June 12).

The businesswoman and award-winning entrepreneur passed away at the age of 65 at her holiday home in Morocco – her agent confirmed at the weekend.

Devey, who had been the Pall-Ex chairwoman, had battled with a long-term illness which is still unknown.

However, exactly a month before her sad death was confirmed, the TV star revealed to fans on Twitter that she was doing just "fine" – with the post now coming as a shock to many.

The tweet read: "I am fine thanks. Working on an exciting project."

After the shocking news had reached fans, they swarmed the comments section of her last post to issue their condolences, along with re-sharing her final words on the popular platform.

Masses of followers turned up to express their deep sadness and hailed the BBC star as an "inspiration".

One person penned: "Hilary, I was thinking of you today. Like usual to check in how you are and new projects. Sad to hear that you was unwell and passed away. You'll always be my inspiration. Will miss you. RIP lovely lady."

Another message read: "I'm so gutted right now 🙁 You were/are my inspiration, I hope one day I can achieve even just a drop of what have in your amazing life x RIP."

A third said: "Such a loss, I feel so sad today. She was a beautiful soul."

While a fourth also chimed: "What a loss for female entrepreneurs worldwide. Such an inspirational lady but your legacy will live on. RIP."

The death of the television personality, who shot to fame on the Secret Millionaire in 2008, was confirmed by a spokesperson, they said: "I can confirm that Hilary sadly died yesterday.

"She had been ill for some time."

In 2011, the no-nonsense Bolton-native had caught the attention of BBC producers after she'd made her millions from leading the UK's leading palletised freight distribution network Pall-Ex.

Her on-screen career really rocketed as she joined Dragons' Den's entrepreneurs, including Peter Jones, Theo Paphitis, Duncan Bannatyne and Deborah Meaden on the BBC favourite.

In 2015, Devey even struck up a deal with ITV to appear on Loose Women as an occasional panellist which was short lived as she confirmed her departure from the programme just two months later.
