Dragon's Den's Duncan Bannatyne opening gym in Northern Ireland
A leisure company owned by former Dragon's Den star Duncan Bannatyne is to open its first gym in Northern Ireland.
The Bannatyne Group has acquired the Virgin Active Health club near Belfast for an undisclosed sum.
The club, on the Belfast Road in Holywood, has a membership of more than 3,700, an advanced gym, cycle studio, a luxury spa, sauna facilities, a 20-metre pool and children's pool.
Bannatyne Group chief executive Justin Musgrove said: "This club is our first investment beyond the UK mainland and we are delighted that its committed team of staff will be joining the Bannatyne Group, enabling us to grow and develop."
