Dragons’ Den contestant Kirsty Henshaw has won a permanent listing with Sainsbury’s for her free-from ready meals.

Following a trial in 55 stores in July, the range - called Kirsty’s - is being rolled into 400 stores now. The dishes, including chicken tikka masala and Spanish chicken & Moroccan vegetables, are free from lactose, gluten, soya, eggs, nuts and artificial flavours, colours and sweeteners.

Henshaw secured £65k backing from Peter Jones and Duncan Bannatyne.
