Robbie is a friend of mine."Nick laughed and told the Dragons he has been asked that question before.He said: "I'm a less good looking version."Unfortunately the business partners were disappointed when the Dragons said they were "out" as they couldn't see a way to invest in Nick's business.Recently, successful business owner Edward Hancock and his business partner Richard Simpson have shared what it takes to be a success on Dragons' Den as well as behind-the-scenes secrets.

I bring the toys, snacks, I bring the doggie bags, I bring all of the things that you put inside your bag, and I'm not using your product, so clearly there is competition.
