A photo of Duncan Bannatyne shifting his girlfriend has turned into a gas meme

As it tends to do.

DUNCAN BANNATYNE – HE of Dragons’ Den fame – looked like he was enjoying the sunshine this morning.

So he posted this tweet to his followers:

The tweet could reasonably be described as a bit OTT and the millionaire Scottish businessman has since deleted it.

But before it was deleted the line “Good morning, have a wonderful day. I know I will. X” went straight into internet folklore

It’s just people shifting in the worst way

Poor Duncan

“I know I will. X”


Perhaps this will overshadow any fame he got from being surly on Dragons’ Den

It’s a late bid to be the best shifting moment the internet has seen in 2015

Never forget the Bannatyne

“Have a wonderful day”
