THE duo behind a glasses stall in Silverburn have featured on a popular BBC TV show.

Business owners Lina and Dan, who founded Pop Specs which has a kiosk in the leisure centre, starred in the first episode of series 21 of Dragons' Den last night (Thursday, January 4).

Heading into the den, the pair were looking for a £75,000 investment in exchange for five per cent of their business, which specialises in eyewear. 

However, after discussing with the five dragons, they were offered a joint investment of £25,000 each for five per cent of the business each from Peter Jones, Sara Davies, and Touker Suleyman.

After receiving the offer, the entrepreneurs then asked the stars to consider going four per cent each for £25,000 - which they agreed to.

The glasses business was sparked by Dan and Lina after they met while at university.

Following that, they launched their first kiosk in the Trafford Centre in Manchester in May 2020.
