Here is my best explanation:

'delight one' is the definition.

'entrance' can be an answer for 'delight' (thesaurus). I am not sure about the 'one' bit.

I don't understand how the rest of the clue works.

This clue was last seen in Evening Standard

(Other definitions for entrance that I've seen before include "Right of admission", "doorway", "Cast a spell on", "An actor's coming on stage", "drawbridge?", "In transport", "Coming onto the stage", "charm", "Send" and "appearance".)
