Dangerman Martin Shenton failed to wrest a quarter of a million pounds from the Dragons’ Den - but will expand his business regardless.

The film and TV stuntman is building a new extension to his horror-themed paintballing game despite being rejected by the panel on the BBC2 TV show last Sunday.

Shenton asked multi-millionaires Peter Jones, Hilary Devey, Deborah Meaden, Theo Paphitis and Duncan Bannantyne to invest £250,000 in his indoor ‘zombie-killing’ experience.

But Jones said: “I quite like your game but I can’t see how it will make money.”

And Deborah Meaden told Shenton: “You need a reality check.”

Afterwards Martin said: “Most of them seemed to like the game but they didn’t ‘get’ it.

“But I’ve had a few more people booking to play the game since we were on TV.”

The Blue, Green, Yellow, DEAD! maze game at Regent Park Studios will be open to the public for a special tour on Hallowe’en night (October 31) at 4pm.
