Two new entrepreneurs Steve Parish and Jenny Campbell have joined 'Dragons' Den'
Steve Parish and Jenny Campbell have joined the 'Dragons' Den' panel.
The Crystal Palace Football Club chairman and former CEO of Tag Worldwide Steve will join the remaining Dragons Peter Jones, Deborah Meaden and Touker Suleyman.
The 51-year-old business,am said: "I'm thrilled to become a Dragon and really excited to meet the entrepreneurs in this series, see what ideas they bring to the Den and how I might be able to help them grow."
The founder of YourCash Europe Jenny said she is a fan of the programme and is looking forward to getting started when the series starts in summer.
Jenny, 56, said: "As a fan of 'Dragons' Den' I'm very excited to be taking my seat in the line-up and bringing my own unique style to the Den.
"I'm looking forward to using my extensive business skills to spot the next generation of entrepreneurs and help them realise their business dream."
The two will take their seats as replacements for Nick Jenkins and Sarah Willingham, who both quit in January after two years on the show.
Sarah, creator of the Bombay Bicycle Club restaurant chain, turned her back on the programme earlier this year to travel the world with her husband and children.
The 43-year-old businesswoman said: "It's been a great privilege to be part of such a fantastic show and I wish everyone on it continued success."
However, the founder of Moonpig.com Nick, 49, decided to leave to focus on his own businesses.
He said: "I have thoroughly enjoyed making 'Dragons' Den' but I want to focus more on my portfolio of educational technology businesses and that would make it difficult to take on any more investments from the Den."
