Dragon’s Den star Duncan Bannatyne was at the centre of a public spat with his ex-girlfriend after she accused him of threatening “revenge porn”.

Former beauty queen Michelle Evans alleged Mr Bannatyne implied he would publicise intimate photographs of her after she asked him for help with a child care bill.

She made her claims in a Sunday newspaper but Mr Bannatyne immediately hit back on Twitter suggesting she was a “bunny boiler” and guilty of “sour grapes”.

The millionaire denied the claims and said he had “no respect for anyone who sells a kiss n tell story for £25,000 & fills it with lies”.

Miss Evans, 37, ended a seven month relationship with the 66-year-old businessman after he was photographed with another woman.

She told the Sunday Mirror that she texted him saying he should reimburse her the £1,200 she had spent on child care for her son while she went out on dates with him.

She claimed he replied saying “really? You are happy with me showing the pictures you sent me?”

Miss Evans said that during their relationship she had sent Mr Bannatyne photographs of her naked and in underwear.

She told the newspaper: “It is like the revenge porn stories you hear about.

“I feel like he has a huge amount of power over me. It kills me that Duncan still has those pictures.”

A friend of the businessman told the newspaper he would never share the images.

I hear there is a bunny boiler on the loose in UK?

He also denied claims that he had made Miss Evans pay half the bill in restaurants and that he had given her a £20 gift set from Morrisons for Christmas.

He appeared to be tweeting from Paris from where he was also posting images of himself with his new girlfriend Nigora Whitehorn.
