I am in the middle of filming a brand new series of Dragons' Den for transmission in 2007.
Over the summer and early autumn, the last run of the hit BBC Two series drew a huge audience of around 4 million viewers.
And I'm delighted to be involved in another series - the fourth, in fact - which has gone swiftly into production almost as soon as we'd finished making the last series.
It's great working with Helen Bullough and her excellent team of people from BBC Manchester.
Every series of filming brings new surprises. But one thing's for certain. I'm looking forward to negotiating alongside my fellow Dragons and quizzing an army of intrepid budding entrepreneurs.
