Dragons' Den will return for its 19th series on the BBC this week, with a new Dragon joining the mix.

It will see a fresh batch of business minds pitch their propositions with the hope of acquiring investments from the panel.

Peter Jones, Deborah Meaden, Touker Suleyman and Sara Davies all return as panellists and will be joined by 29-year-old Steven Bartlett, who is the youngest Dragon in the history of the show.

Bartlett was a millionaire by the age of 23, who rose to success with the marketing agency Social Chain, a business he set up when he was 18.

It is now valued at around $600m according to The Guardian, and he went onto new projects with Thirdweb, a company that creates blockchain-based applications, and Flight Story, a marketing platform.
