Dragons’ Den returns for its 15th series with two new multi-millionaires entering the fray. The new firebreathers – supplement supremo Tej Lalvani and cashpoint queen Jenny Campbell – will be brandishing their chequebooks alongside serial investor Deborah Meaden, technology titan Peter Jones and fashion retail tycoon Touker Suleyman.
This series, the Dragons face 102 investment hopefuls, with 26 securing that all important cash injection – the most in the show’s history.
In the opening episode, two entrepreneurs, consumed by nerves, hope that their allergy-friendly food range will hit the spot for the Dragons, whilst another hopes his company valuation won’t have the Dragons applying the brakes to his high-security bike shelters.
The Dragons also meet a former footballer who hopes that his five-a-side astroturf pitches for schools and youth centres will score an investment from the Dragons, despite his figures not quite matching up. Finally, a duo with a voucher code website they think will revolutionise online shopping are hoping to walk away with some Dragon cash.
Dragons’ Den Season 15 Episode 1 (of 14) airs Sunday 20 August 2017 from 8.00pm-9.00pm on BBC TWO.
