Enter the Dragon; Tomorrow Dragons' Den (BBC2 9pm).

IT'S the start of the ninth, ten-part series in which more budding entrepreneurs will be pitching their ideas for great inventions to the panel.

Joining the likes of Duncan Bannatyne and Theo Paphitis is newcomer Hilary Devey (right), whose too-dark-for-her-age hair makes her look like a 'something of the night' version of Pauline Collins.

But she's certainly a character. Based in part of Staffordshire's Rangemore Hall mansion, she's said to be worth pounds 100 million after building up a haulage business called Pall-Ex in the part of the country she reckons is its absolute centre - Leicester.

As well as having a son from a former marriage who has battled heroin addiction, Hilary had a stroke two years ago following a liposuction operation.

Now relying on a chauffeur, but with a brain that's still razor-sharp, she's nobody's fool... as the contenders on this show are about to find out.

The Spiderwick Chronicles (Channel 4, 4.35pm) is one of the best children's films of the century, but younger viewers will find it too scary.

Today's soccer includes Inter Milan v Manchester City in the Dublin Super Cup (Sky Sports 2, ko 4.30pm).
