Dragons' Den returns to our screens tonight and viewers will have the first opportunity to see new 'Dragon' Hilary Devey in action.

Devey says that; "Being told that I was going to be a Dragon on Dragons' Den was one of the highlights of my life, as I had been a fan of the show for many years."

Joining the likes of Duncan Bannatyne, Theo Paphitis, Deborah Meaden and Peter Jones could be a daunting prospect but not so for this successful entrepreneur who made her fortune in the male dominated world of freight and distribution.

The new 'Dragon' told the BBC that; "I like to think that if the younger me had stood there in the Den in front of these intimidating business people, I would have held my nerve, done my homework, and certainly I could have done with the support when I was starting out."
