Dragons' Den contestant LIVID as Deborah Meaden throws his 'bloody awful' protein shake over the floor
DRAGONS' Den contestant was left LIVID after Deborah Meaden threw "bloody awful" protein shake over the floor.
Entrepreneur Jeremy Poland made his mark up on Thursday’s show, after pitching his genetically personalised nutrition shake.
Jeremy went on the programme to secure £50,000 for 2.5 per cent share of his business, from Peter Jones, Deborah Meaden, Touker Souleyman,Tej Lalvani and Sara Davies.
He unique business model involved customers taking a DNA swab test to better understand their metabolism, and tailor their shakes based on their on their nutritional debilitations.
However not all of the Dragons were impressed with the product, with Deborah accidentally flinging the shake on the floor.
The businesswoman was left in hysterics after she spilled the shake all over her legs.
Things went from bad to worse after Sarah Davis slammed the product saying: "It taste bloody awful."
Despite a few hiccups, the pitch went down well leaving two Dragons impressed with Nutri-Genetix (NGX), which says it is the world’s first genetically personalised nutrition shake.
He persuaded investors Peter Jones and Touker Suleyman to invest £50,000 for 15 per cent of the business.
However Jeremy was not happy with the shows edit, he told Metro: "She basically had a taste of it and said that comment, but added that she 'never liked the taste of protein shakes'. That’s really annoying actually that they cut that out.
"Obviously, you don’t want someone to say that, because it’s on national television. But I think that it tastes good."
It comes a week after an entrepreneur broke down in tears as she revealed her brother died just days before the first lockdown.
Sharon Keegan took to the Den in a bid to secure £100,000 for an 11 per cent share in her business Peachy Lean, which sells athleisure wear.
The businesswoman told the Dragons' about the impact Covid had on her company, which sells "confidence in the form of spandex and nylon".
But the mum began to cry as she revealed an influx in orders came in shortly after the first wave of the pandemic, but she didn't have enough stock.
"March was a very difficult time for me," Sharon explained. "My brother died two days before the lockdown. He was 35 and had two kids."
