Grandmother-of-eight Simeone Salik was £40,000 better off this week after a successful stint on BBC2's reality-TV show Dragons' Den.
During the episode - aired on Monday - Mrs Salik, 67, faced the dragons together with her two business partners. In case you missed it, the trio pitched for investment in their online firm, blindsinabox.co.uk, which sells instant temporary blinds. They secured £40,000 for a 50 per cent stake in the business, with the option to regain 10 per cent if they reach certain targets.
