Season 9 - Episode 1

It may be a time of austerity in the UK but not so in the Dragons' Den... business is booming as the self-made multimillionaires return to the screen, ready to boost the economy by investing in the brightest and best of Britain's entrepreneurs. Whilst the rules of the series remain the same, you will notice one change... the arrival of new Dragon Hilary Devey, who joins the line-up of the five fearsome financiers. Having scrimped, saved and self-sacrificed in the haulage industry to make her own fortune, Hilary has her own views on the products and businesses brought before her, and she's more than happy to take on her rivals in order to get the best deal. 34-year-old Georgette Hewitt, from Kent, finds out exactly how nerve-wracking it can be to climb those famous stairs and pitch to the Dragons. It's a real battle to compose her nerves, but one she must win in order to tempt the multimillionaires to invest in her answer to a common birthday party headache familiar to all parents. Entrepreneurs often take advantage of the latest government schemes and incentives when building their business, which is exactly what Chris Hopkins from Yorkshire has done by capitalising on the solar power feed-in tariff. But when a Dragon knows your industry inside out it's not always what you want. Add into the mix the most unusual use you could ever think of for a plastic egg, a circus act that's sure to go with a bang, and a mind coaching massage service, and you've got a formidable showcase of the Great British spirit of invention and innovation. As ever Evan Davis is on hand to dissect the events, with further action and reaction available through the Red Button.

The Den is taken over by a pirate, a street urchin and a hippy as Peter and Michelle Hart, plus five of their seven children, pitch their fancy dress business; but is their dream of investment pure fantasy? Brothers Jim and Richard George from Malvern believe they're in a strong position with their fence preservation company which is already trading. The business-savvy siblings have a deal in mind - but will the offer they're holding out for materialize? Others looking for Dragon investment include an 'all you can drink' membership club, an exercise suit that claims to burn extra calories, and some giant knitting needles.

It is another busy week in the Den as eight more entrepreneurs pitch to the Dragons for a cash injection in their money-making ideas. Often, a visual aid helps get across what is being pitched, and this time there is a plethora of props to help the multimillionaires understand the commercial potential of the businesses on offer. A ballroom dancer turned inventor brings a bit of sparkle into the Den via a tango and a glitter ball; Theo Paphitis and Peter Jones crawl into a new concept for the camping industry; and a labrador called Margot helps to sell the idea of doggy ice cream. Also in the Den: a world kickboxing champion, two Welshmen with their celebrity-backed toffee vodka, and three friends from London who hope to capitalise on empty loft space.

Some of the nations' budding businessmen and women have already entered the Den, but so far not all of their products and inventions have received a rave reception. This episode sees more intrepid entrepreneurs climb the stairs in the hope of realising their own investment dreams. Numbers are crunched and ideas are interrogated as the five fearsome Dragons weigh up which side of the coin their decision to invest will come down on. A former disc jockey has a strategy, dress to impress to catch the attention of an investor. The DJ may have worn a DJ, but is that all it takes to part a Dragon from their cash? A Londoner hopes to alleviate a common worry for holidaymakers by locking up their valuables, but with just 5 per cent of his company on offer, can he guarantee a valuable return? Monterrey-born Marcela Flores Newburn pitches her Mexican food range complete with a full mariachi band, another budding entrepreneur asks the multi-millionaires to think of their homes, not as houses but as a source of income, and a former hairdresser has a product that makes money from thin air, but does he have the business plan to match?

The Dragons are back and hungry to secure themselves the best deal. These are challenging times economically, but that hasn't deterred the nation's entrepreneurs from pitting their wits against the multimillionaire investors. In this series, a record number of entrepreneurs walk up the famous stairs to ask for an all-important cash injection that could transform their businesses and change their lives. The rival multimillionaires may be used to the odd glass of something sparkling, but Devon-based vineyard owner Geoff Bowen hopes his unusual business proposition will tempt them into investing. Inventor Derek Cozens thinks that road signs are so last century and wants to drag them into 2010 with his new product range. Do Dragons have a sweet tooth? One 24-year-old mum from Preston, Kirsty Henshaw, hopes they do and that it's the best way to get the cash she needs for her frozen pudding business. It wouldn't be Dragons' Den without a product getting tested to destruction, and calling a product 'safe' is like a red rag to a bull for one particular Dragon.
