Next Episode of Dragons' Den is
Series in which budding entrepreneurs get three minutes to pitch their business ideas to five multi-millionaires willing to invest their own cash.
This episode features Alan Mandel Butler and his company Apocalypse. The Den is the stuff of nightmares for most, but what reaction did they get once they asked the Dragons for a two hundred thousand pound investment in their horror-based scare attraction? The investors may be used to being the leading characters in the Den, but how will they respond to London-based Australian Katie Olver who has them starring in her personalised romance novels? Also featured in this episode are Aberdeenshire's Eddie Middleton and his eco-friendly patio heaters, a more cat-friendly collar, and a revolutionary new hat that makes your wrinkles disappear. All that and an invention that puts an end to nuisance phone calls.
What will the Dragons make of poker player JJ Hazan's proposition? Oscar-nominated make-up artist Beverley Binda wants to launch a new range of cosmetics for darker skin, and corporate team builders BassToneSlap from Nottingham hope to drum up support for their business by offering up probably the noisiest pitch ever heard in the Den.
Also fronting the Dragons are Scunthorpe's Sharon Wright, who has worked day and night on her own to launch her first invention in the UK but needs the Dragons' expertise to take it global, and trained barrister Adejare Doherty who pleads his case for his new range of eco-friendly disposable dinnerware. Will the Dragons give him the 120,000 pound verdict he needs?
Launching a new musical is a notoriously risky venture; will Kent-based theatre director and former Pebble Mill presenter Josephine Buchan hit the right note in her quest for cash? East London brothers Oliver and Toby Richmond hope there will be no stalling when they ask the Dragons to invest in their car servicing company. A former GCSE project takes centre stage when Welsh student Emily Webb asks for 75,000 pounds to take her invention to market, and Rugby duo Frank Drewett and Lawrence Webb hope a Dragon's backing will help lift the lid on the potential of their wheelie bin accessory.
Can Tony Earnshaw and Steven Pearson make a clean sweep with their regional cleaning company? Karen O'Neill and Karen Coombes could be skating on thin ice by coming into the Den with their new invention to help budding Torvills and Deans all over the country; and will advertising consultant and budding entrepreneur William Sachiti get the money he needs to roll out his new litter bin that he describes as 'approachable'?
Father-and-son team Phillip and Robert Pain hope that the well-travelled multimillionaires will fund their extraordinary multipurpose suitcase-come-sunlounger to the tune of 200,000 pounds, and Patrick Thirkell from Moray in Scotland hopes to catch a Dragon with his new offshore seafood company.
For Lancashire-based Paul Ward, the current swine flu pandemic has boosted sales of his bug-busting cleaning products, but will the Dragons be impressed enough to invest? Carol Savage from Hertfordshire hopes to cook up a frenzy with her online community for food lovers, and whilst the Dragons are no strangers to fine wine, can serial entrepreneur James Nash entice them to pour investment into his innovative single serve wine containers? Meanwhile, can jewellery and fashion designer Jane Rafter walk away with investment for her range of customisable sandals? Finally, the Dragons come face-to-face with themselves as a Midlands trio ask for 50,000 pounds for their customisable masks.
It's not easy when Deborah Meaden declares you've given possibly the worst pitch in the Den, but that's just what Manchester inventor Samantha Gore heard last series as her pitch fell apart. That hasn't deterred her though, and she's back again with another addition to her crime prevention business and continued dreams of investment. Fellow Mancunian and classical pianist David Schofield is hoping his youthful take on the classics will get a Dragon to finance his future recordings. Also aiming to succeed is Ronan McCarthy from Surrey with his 21st-century take on the shoe polish booth. Personal biographer Michael Oke hopes he can start a new chapter in his life and get one of the five dragons to back his publishing venture, whilst West Midlands duo Peter Neath and Ian Worton hope they'll stand up to the investors' grilling and secure some much needed cash in their sausage cooking accessory. Devon mother of two Nikki Povey brings along a couple of interesting friends in a bid to appeal to the Dragons' fun side, and London businessman Jason Roberts pitches his range of protective coverings for mobile phones and computer equipment.
Hampshire-based businessman Stephen Voller hopes the Dragons won't put the brakes on his new electric car invention, as he smashes the Den record for the most money ever asked for. But will he walk away with the cash?
Serial inventor Michael Pritchard hopes to clean up in the Den with his revolutionary invention that allows every last drop of liquid to be used in household product sprays. Young Bolton entrepreneurs Umar Mohammed and Ahmed Suleman hope they'll get investment from a Dragon with their fast food curry trays.
Also heading up the stairs are London sisters Audrey and Sophie Boss, who want to gain lots of extra pounds from their new approach to weight loss. And there's a touch of fantasy in the Den as Norfolk-based craftsman Russell Bowlby pitches his range of high-end children's play equipment.
It's the final episode of a record-breaking series, with more money than ever offered by the Dragons. Will any of the last batch of entrepreneurs be part of that successful tally?
A husband and wife team from Warwickshire, David and Patti Bailey, believe they have every executive's dream, with a range of computer mice based on iconic classic cars. Ever wondered how to get the last bit of toothpaste from the tube? Susan Bell and Jonathan Jones have an invention that can do just that, and are looking for 75,000 pounds to take it to market.
Michael Lea from Cheshire reckons that good food is always in demand, even in a recession, and wants a Dragon to back his novel hot and cold food van. Also, young Manchester student Vernon Kerswell hopes the sky's the limit with his extreme remote-controlled microhelicopters.
