Dragons Den

The Real Marigold Hotel returns to BBC One

This year’s four-part series will feature actress Britt Ekland, Dragons’ Den star Duncan Bannatyne, fashion designer Dame Zandra Rhodes, Chuckle Brother Paul Chuckle, cricket commentator Henry Blofeld, EastEnders actor John Altman, actress Susie Blake, and singer Barbara Dickson.

The travel documentary series was inspired and named after the film The Best Exotic Marigold Hotel, and follows elderly celebrities as they test out retirement in India.

Meet the new Dragons entering the Den

The show that sees budding entrepreneurs entering the Den to pitch business ideas to the Dragons has unveiled a new line up.

This year’s new additions will join existing multi-millionaire Dragons Deborah Meaden and Peter Jones.  

An estimated £15m has been invested by the Dragons since the Den opened its doors a decade ago.

After Duncan Bannatyne, Kelly Hoppen and Piers Linney left the show, three new investors will join BBC Two’s flagship investment show.
