Peter Jones makes everyone cry on BBC Dragons' Den after emotional speech
Things at first looked bleak for the mums as the Dragons took issue with the cost of their easy-access breastfeeding clothing range
Peter Jones had everyone in tears on Dragons' Den as he responded to a unique offer for two sisters pitching their maternity-wear business. Alex and Jenny McFadden had come to the five entrepreneurs looking for a £30,000 investment in their business Pretty Mama for a 20% return.
Things at first looked bleak for the mums as the Dragons took issue with the cost of their easy-access breastfeeding clothing range. They were also told their business "had a long way to go".
But the Dragons appeared to like them so much that Touker Suleyman proposed a unique deal where all five Dragons would come on board for a third of their business before even knowing if any of the others were interested.
Steven Bartlett came on board, telling the sisters the business needed a lot of work but adding "people sometimes need a little bit of support in life". He was joined by Sara Davies, who added: "It needs a lot of work however you do seem like great girls and maybe a little bit of work will help get you there."
But the whole plan seemed to have been derailed as Deborah Meaden told them she would not be investing, saying: "I don't think in this scenario that is going to work, I'm not going to be part of a five dragon deal."
Peter then saved the day as he told the girls why he would be happy to split the company between four Dragons: "I agree, mobilising five dragons and working together is hard enough. You don't need five, but I think you need four and I'm definitely willing to join the journey.
"I think you have absolutely knocked it out of the park and have the opportunity to make something great. And I believe with four Dragons with the skills those individual dragons have, I think you've got the Avengers."
Sara Davies, who appeared on Strictly Come Dancing with Aljaz Skorjanec, said: "Peter you made the baby cry, you made the entrepreneur cry you made us cry, what's going on?!"
