TV business guru Duncan Bannatyne has pulled out of the celebrity show-jumping programme Only Fools On Horses after breaking an elbow. Dragon’s Den star Duncan was due to take part in the show for BBC Sport Relief. But he tumbled off after jumping a few fences in a training session and fractured his left elbow. Insiders revealed Duncan, 57, who was riding a horse called Scooby, had earlier requested a faster mount. He said yesterday: “I was on the horse for about half an hour when I misjudged a turn. “I’m gutted. I’ll miss the team as they’re all great and I hope they raise lots of money. But it hasn’t put me off riding.” He has been replaced by former Pop Idol panelist Nikki Chapman. A BBC source said: “It’s a tough competition and most of the celebrities have taken a few knocks.” The nine-day event, which also stars Ruby Wax and Radio 1 DJ Sara Cox, kicks off next month.
