Nerves of steel are required for contestants on Dragon's Den but one fell foul of Deborah Meaden's harsh interrogation on last night's episode of the hit BBC show.

Amy Wordsworth asked the dragons to invest £60,000 in her children's skincare business in exchange for 15 per cent share in her company.

However, dragon Deborah Meaden was not impressed with her proposal and launched into a tirade which scared Amy so much she almost fainted.

Amy revealed she had only earned £3,500 from Ocado sales this year and Deborah roared, "You've basically got no business at the moment.  I'm not being funny Amy, but you have no business!".

Amy didn't take the criticism very well and went very pale before saying, "I'm sorry, I've gone really light-headed".

Dragons Sarah Willingham and Touker Suleyman leapt to her side to proffer a chair and a glass of water.

Deborah joked, "What have I done to you?" although Amy recovered and continued with her presentation, securing an investment - from Deborah.

Deborah offered her the £60,000 for a 40 per cent share of her business and a delighted Amy agreed.
