BBC's The One Show's Alex Jones shed a tear as she listened to TV guest and Dragon's Den star Sara Davies.

On Wednesday (April 27), Sara was welcomed onto the BBC show by hosts Alex and Jermaine Jenas who opened the floor up for the Strictly star to talk about her new book.

When explaining the details of her autobiography, Sara, spoke about her parents and how proud they were of her and her work.

As producers played a clip of her parents on-screen, Sara said: "Look at my mum there, she's struggling not to get upset- we're all the same!"

To which Alex interjected: "I'm getting upset, have we got a tissue?"

Sara added: "I remember getting my dad to read the first proof of the book over Christmas, he was so emotional and ringing me every few hours and he said 'I've learnt so much there kid'.

"I said 'dad you were there for every chapter of the book!' But he said 'no, but I've never seen your life through your eyes and how you feel about things and how it made you the person that you are'.

"Honestly it was amazing! You will enjoy it," she told the hosts.

She also revealed that she took a lot of inspiration from the other Dragon's Den stars' autobiographies.

Sara explained how she took what she learned from their lives and applied it to her own when growing up.

She continued: "I read all of the Dragon's autobiographies and I studied them thinking they would tell me how to run a business.

"However, I read Duncan Bannatyne's book and I thought you know what he is just a normal bloke.

"He didn't grow up with a silver spoon in his mouth, he just had a really big dream and loads of drive, it was called Anybody Can Do It and I look at what the impact that had on me as a young girl in my early 20s and I thought if I could touch just a handful of people lives it would be a legacy."
