Multimillionaire businessmen Duncan Bannatyne and Peter Jones swapped Dragons' Den for the dancefloor for a Strictly Come Dancing Sport Relief Special.

The tables were turned on the Den duo who are more used to making or breaking the dreams of budding entrepreneurs than getting down to the serious business of dancing.

Instead of flashing their cash they were strutting their stuff, with Strictly judging panel Bruno Tonioli, Craig Revel Horwood and Len Goodman watching their every move.

Bannatyne and Jones ditched their suits for sequins as they were paired up with professional dancers Natalie Lowe and Lilia Kopylova.

The Strictly Sport Relief Special, hosted by Tess Daly, was filmed earlier and will be aired on BBC One on Friday March 19.

Other highlights of the Sport Relief weekend include a new sketch from James Corden and special editions of Ashes to Ashes, MasterChef and A Question of Sport Relief.
