Entrepreneurs Deborah Meaden and Theo Paphitis cause a stir in Honiton.

Stars of the BBC’s Dragon’s Den surprised residents and shoppers in Honiton as they scowered antiques shops in the town as part of filming for a new TV programme.

Deborah Meaden and Theo Paphitis stopped outside St Paul’s Church in vintage cars ready to begin filming for Celebrity Antiques Road Trip.

The programme, which conicides with Children in Need, sees the two Dragons go head to head as they seek out bargains that will make them a profit at auction.

It will see them travel from Honiton to Minehead stopping at other destinations along the way.
