Multi-millionaire Touker Suleyman, who stars alongside Peter on the BBC show 'Dragon's Den', has revealed he enjoys "winding" his fellow investor up on nights out after filming.
He said: "I enjoy winding Peter up and he enjoys winding me up. Peter is 6ft 7in and I am 5ft 6in so physically he is much bigger than me.
"Of course, he outdoes me when it comes to drinking wine in the evenings. That is his passion and I can't keep up with him. He outdrinks me every time.
"But he is always sharp in the Den the next day, always as fresh as a button."
And their rivalry doesn't just stop at drinking as Touker revealed the pair "try and outdo" each other in the Den too.
He added: "We are not rude to each other. When we are in the Den we are investing our own money and when we see a good investment we try and outdo each other.
"We try and make the best offer we can give the entrepreneur. Peter has been a Dragon for a long time so knows strategically how to play it."
And Touker - who has an estimated £150 million fortune - has insisted he has been welcomed with open arms by the show's veterans, Peter and Deborah Meaden.
He told The Sun newspaper: "Bearing in mind that Peter and Deborah have been on the show for a long time, they have been amazing at how they have made the new Dragons feel at home.
"They have been great. But when we are in the Den we have to do what we have got to do. We are investing our own money and we try and make that happen."
