Kelly Hoppen believes her "creative background" makes her stand out from the other Dragons on 'Dragons' Den'.
The 54-year-old interior designer - who replaced Hilary Devey on the BBC Two show earlier this year - thinks she brings something different to the panel because of her artistic experience and imagination.
Speaking exclusively to BANG Showbiz, she said: "I became a Dragon because I love the show and am passionate about working with entrepreneurs.
"I hear interesting ideas and help guide entrepreneurs to having a successful business and if I find a great investment whilst doing that, wonderful! I knew I would bring something different to the Den as I was coming from a creative background."
However, the blonde beauty insists she gets on well with the other Dragons, Peter Jones, Deborah Meaden, Duncan Bannatyne and Piers Linney.
She explained: "Honestly it is a blast! They are all such wonderful people with fantastic senses of humour and I couldn't have wished for better Dragons to work with."
In her role as Kleenex Design Consultant, British designer Kelly assisted with the briefing and selection of three unique and trend-led Kleenex Limited Edition Collection Cubes which are available from all major retailers MRSP £1.88.
