Miruji Sit and Slim - Alan Sharrock
Warmahorn - Ali Kedge
Human Cannonball - Rodrigo Perez
Dust Elimin8 - Paul Watts
Gloven oven gloves - Nola Baldwin buy one
Ploughcroft - Chris Hopkins


Georgette Hewitt had the awful brain freeze moment so frequently experienced by many and it was not looking good but fortunately her Present Club idea was a real winner and she was gifted £60000 from Theo and Peter in exchange for 30%. www.thepresentclub.co.uk
George Winter saw his anti loo splashback idea well and truly flushed down the toilet by all the Dragons. The same fate awaited Alan Sharrock with his health and well being franchise business Miruji which got a real dressing down from all the Dragons. www.sitandslim.co.uk
The Dragons couldn't quite warm to the concept of a device to warm trumpets or saxophones but Ali Kedge continues selling the product at www.warmahorn.com
The human cannonball Rodrigo Perez charmed the Dragons but got quickly fired as an investable business. www.humancannonball.co.uk
Paul Watts had a good invention in an attachment for power saws that eliminates dust but the Dragons did not see it as a profitable venture although it can be found for sale elsewhere. www.2011.totallydiy.co.uk
They also couldn't warm to the Gloven oven glove by ex singer Nola Baldwin. www.gloven.co.uk
Deborah and Theo invested a joint £120000 in the solar power investment opportunity presented by Chris Hopkins for 25% www.ploughcroft.co.uk

Krissy and Kerry presented a great pitch but faltered on numbers and although they charmed the Dragons they couldn't receive any investment. blog.djandmcacademy.com/
John McMangle caused some laughs with his inflatable car bed which was not seen as currently very practical but continues to sell at www.karnap.co.uk
LoveDaPop did go down very well with Peter though and he invested 70k for 45% of the popcorn company. www.lovedawebsite.com/
NoParkingFine seems like it should strike a chord with many but surprisingly didn't favour well with the Dragons. www.noparkingfine.co.uk/
Glen Harden raised many laughs but no investment despite his all too honest approach to the Dragons. www.uvbodysculpture.com/
Bath Sound also went down the plug hole although seemed a great invention. www.bathsound.co.uk/
Dog Bling was not seen as a scaleable investment. www.dogbling.co.uk
Hilary saw potential and made her first investment in Duvalay to the tune of £80000 for 26%. www.raskelf.com/Boats/Memory_Foam_Duvalay

Perhaps being too enthusiastic was the problem for the presenters of the dog indoor loo who really annoyed the Dragons! www.rascaldoglitterbox.co.uk
The Dragons enjoyed the drink but not the idea of a corporate private members all you can drink club.
Peter and Michelle Hart impressed initially but gradually came under scathing attacks from most of the Dragons, however Duncan spotted the potential and although they'd offered just 10% he dealt with 50% and £100000 investment. www.funfancydress.com
Leon Leigh failed to impress with his innovative weight loss clothing idea. Alexander Tomich did impress though with his light display and personality but no investment was offered. www.philharmoniclights.com
The Dragons also failed to warm to Justin Potters invention of a hot water bottle holder. Extreme knitting wasn't seen as a viable business either. www.racheljohn.co.uk
Post saver fence post protection seemed a bit of an oddity but the Dragons saw huge potential and wanted to invest so it was a bit of a shock when a deal couldn't be reached. www.postsaver.co.uk

Bob's Box seemed like a total no go as an investment so it was a surprise when Hilary invested £50000 for 20% of the Box income plus the company. www.uniqueideas.co.uk
The Dragons couldn't see any potential in the luxury accommodation surrounding sporting events idea though, and they were less than impressed with the figures for the My Sea Safe device. www.myseasafe.com
The steam shaver protection device did not go down well nor did the delicious Mexican food business. www.ricomexicankitchen.co.uk
The Dragons couldn't find any desire to invest in artificial ski slopes either. www.proslope.com

The show began with a big Cinderella performance from PolkaDot but not seen as a good investment by the Dragons. www.polkadotacademy.co.uk
They enjoyed the chocolate but not the numbers posted by chef Paul Da Costa Greaves. www.thechocolatetherapist.co.uk
Bog In A Bag was not a tasteful subject for the Dragons initially but three of them liked Kate and her presentation and although she almost blew the negotiation by revealing a marked preference for one of the Dragons, fortunately Theo agreed to invest £50000 for 30%. www.boginabag.co.uk
Board games never seem to fair well nowadays with the Dragons and such was the case for Flaggo but you can still buy one yourself.www.flaggo.com
The Dragons were intrigued by Steve Myburgh's swinging seat designs but couldn't see an investment opportunity. www.myburghdesigns.com
WingAware protection for wing mirrors wasn't seen as investable either. www.wingaware.com

Peter tried out the feet cleansing fish tank and was impressed but none of the Dragons could invest. www.aquasheko.co.uk

Alan Pearson's appeal for street sign backing fell foul of the Dragons by not being too sure of his figures.

They weren't impressed with the anti-ageing Natox cream though www.richibrown.com

The Dragons loved the new cobra design electrical plug and socket but couldn't see it breaking through to replace the original.
They saw the group buying crowdity.com venture as too risky.
www.shoot-it-yourself.co.uk went down well though and Hilary invested £60k for 26% of the video business.
