Steven opened up on This Morning as he was talking about the value of money, saying: "It's incredibly easy for someone to say money can't make you happy, but I have also had no money and been stealing Chicago Town pizzas to feed myself, and I would much rather have money."

He told hosts Holly Willoughby and Phillip Schofield: "So I think it is important to acknowledge that life is much easier, the fundamentals of life are much much easier when you do have resources at play."

Steven has previously revealed that he dropped out of university and struggled financially.

However, he went on to build his company when he was only 21 and at 28 he became the youngest ever Dragon in the Den.

Speaking when he joined the show last year, he said: "I've been watching Dragons' Den since I was 12 years old – it was my first window into the real world of business and investing.

"It's a tremendous honour to join the Den, hopefully representing a new generation of entrepreneurs, inspiring young and specifically under-represented entrepreneurs to follow in my footsteps."
