Pair glowing after Dragons swoop

Dragons' Den entrepreneurs Kate Cotton and Louise Ferguson are glowing after viewers saw them pull off the rare feat of snagging all five investment tycoons on the BBC series.

The duo drew interest from all of the often hard-to-please business gurus for their self-tanning product which is also designed to reduce the appearance of cellulite, and opted to team up with new Dragons Kelly Hoppen and Piers Linney.

Ms Ferguson admitted it was a tough choice after gaining so much enthusiasm for their Skinny Tan product which has already been a success in Australia.

She said: "At one stage I had my head in my hands on the floor - I was going, 'I just didn't know what to do'."

Ms Cotton said: "Getting all those offers, we were just blown away - we did not expect. We expected to get an offer but not all five Dragons."

BBC2 viewers saw them win over the panel on the show last night ahead of today's launch of Skinny Tan. They landed £60,000 in exchange for 10% of their business.

Kelly said: "As soon as I tried Skinny Tan in the Den, I loved it. I knew this was going to be a hit."
