The shipping magnate turned investor had been battling a long yet strange illness, what it was has not been confirmed by British and/or Moroccan authorities.

The cities of Bolton and Leeds, where she was born and raised respectively, went into mourning.

The BBC also paid tribute to the former Dragon stating that: “When Hilary entered the Den in 2011 she was formidable, fiery, and completely unforgettable.

A tough talking Dragon who never minced her words, she also always saw the person behind the product and was such an encouraging mentor and investor to so many entrepreneurs.

A hugely successful businesswoman and television expert, she will be missed by all who knew her and benefited from her wise words and experience”.
