New Dragons' Den line-up unveiled

The first picture of the new Dragons' Den business entrepreneurs has been released.

This year's line-up includes existing Dragons Peter Jones and Deborah Meaden, but there are three new additions to the panel.

The new panel members are business investor and founder, Nick Jenkins, Touker Suleyman, a global clothing manufacturer and restaurant and bar owner Sarah Willingham.

The 13th series of the show starts next month on BBC Two.

Former Dragons' Den member Duncan Bannatyne, whose final appearance on the show was aired in March, recently hit the headlines.

Bannatyne appeared on ITV's This Morning and admitted he regretted sending a text to his ex, Michelle Evans, suggesting he would leak naked photographs of her.

He was accompanied on the show by his new girlfriend, Nigora Whitehorn, who he's been dating for around three weeks.

Bannatyne spoke about his new love, saying: "I was getting my teeth done.... I'd had my last treatment. I'd left and spoken to her and thought she's so beautiful I was falling in love with her without even knowing her."

The business entrepreneur, who sat with his hand on her knee, hinted that the couple could marry, telling hosts Phillip Schofield and Amanda Holden: "Get your hat ready."
