A North Norfolk business has received a boost from a TV star.

Ginny Wilson-North, owner of MarGins in Colby, tweeted retail entrepreneur Theo Paphitis about her business during 'Small Business Sunday' and was one of six weekly winners to gain a retweet by the former Dragon's Den star to his 500,000 Twitter followers.

The weekly initiative, set up by Theo in 2010 supports small businesses in the UK, and has seen a surge in interest on the walking and glamping holiday firm's website.

Ginny said: 'We only set up the business in December 2016, so it's great that we managed to attract Theo's interest. It's always tough to raise profile and this is a big boost for us.'

For a re-tweet from Theo, tweet him on Sunday between 5pm and 7.30pm and include the hashtag #SBS.
