In the new series of the popular show, the stakes are raised higher as a new line-up of budding entrepreneurs battle to win a €200,000 investment to start up or develop their own company -- with millionaire Bill Cullen (left) as their business partner.

Tonight, 16 hopefuls are let loose on the streets of Dublin and the idea is that they must make as much money as possible from making and selling lunch deals to the public.
