Bannatyne's 'Ratner boob' on gym visits.
Byline: STEPHEN WHITE
DUNCAN Bannatyne has denied having a "Ratner moment" after admitting he has not visited his chain of gyms for "many years".
The former Dragons' Den star, 69, was asked if he still goes in to check how his Bannatyne Health Clubs are being managed.
But the entrepreneur, who lives in Portugal with wife Nigora, 38, tweeted: "Nope, not for many years."
Another follower said: "Ratner moment..." Mr Bannatyne replied: "Nope."
Gerald Ratner's jewellery firm failed after he called his products "total crap".
Bannatyne Group said: "After working hard all his life, at nearly 70, Duncan is enjoying semi-retirement.
"The company has a passionate and committed management team who visit the clubs regularly."
