Enter the Dragons' Den
Simon Woodroffe—oft-forgotten Dragon from the first series, who was replaced by Paphitis—was behind The Book of Yo!, an account of the rise of his lucrative sushi business, Yo! Sushi. Another original Dragon, Rachel Elnaugh, is something of a serial author, though from her publications, it’s clear to see why she didn’t last long on the show. Business Nightmares: Hitting rock-bottom and Coming out on Top was followed by Business Nightmares: When Entrepreneurs Hit Crisis Point. You needn’t worry about her nocturnal visions anymore, as she co-authored the somewhat more tranquil audiobook Escape the Rat Race, in which she tells you how to “escape the daily treadmill whilst pursuing your dreams”. Would that be one of Bannatyne’s treadmills, I wonder?
Dragons' Den is showing on Mondays on BBC Two at 9am. Picture courtesy of BBC.
