CNBC Meets: Kelly Hoppen

An exclusive interview with the world-renowned designer Kelly Hoppen, who left school at 16 and single-handedly built up a multi-million pound business designing residential and commercial properties, as well as holiday resorts, yachts and aircraft interiors.

In this candid interview with CNBC presenter Tania Bryer, Hoppen reveals the challenges she faced in her childhood, including her chronic dyslexia, bullying and the death of her father when she was just 16 years old. Hoppen also speaks openly and honestly about her two and a half year battle with News International over phone hacking claims.

The programme gives the viewer an insight into the woman behind the brand and the person behind the strong and sometimes fierce reputation. Featuring interviews with Vidal Sassoon, Hoppen's all-time idol, and Gary Rhodes, the internationally acclaimed chef, the viewer is taken on an inspiring journey of a woman who overcame many odds to become one of Britain's most successful business women.
