PETER Jones was left speechless by a ruthless Dragons' Den contestant in an unearthed clip.
The clip from a classic episode of the hit BBC business programme shows Peter Jones being knocked down a peg or two by an assured contestant who sensationally refuses to let him win a debate leaving him speechless.
In the clip, which has gone viral on TikTok, a usually confident Peter sees his ego take a hammering as the lady bites back and tells him he isn't being forced to invest.
In the fiery exchange, Peter looks over the facts and figueres he has been provided with for the business and informs the hopeful that she has zero profit yet has an astonishing valuation.
A deadpan Peter remarks: "You value your company at 2.5 million pounds?"
Without hesitation, she responds: "That's not quite the statement I would make because I do not look to sell my company."

The awkward exchange continued as Peter clapped back instantly: "You do, that's what you're doing now."
She could be heard repeating 'no, no' over the top of him speaking as things got frosty in the den.
Peter continued to jibe back at her before remarking that her business wasn't 'worth anything'.
The contestant answered: "Well I wouldn't say it wasn't worth anything, also I'm not insisting or requiring that you invest in my business, I am putting a proposition forward and if you do not agree or do not find it attractive then, of course, you do not have to invest."
