A DRAGONS' Den contestant made history by being offered the cash AND a job with Peter Jones.
The hit BBC One show returned last Thursday with the five Dragons ready to see which new business ventures they could invest in.
One entrepreneur to enter the Dragons' Den was Lucy, 27, who launched her business selling plastic-free pill bottles on Amazon under the name Tabuu.
She came up with the idea after being told she needs to carry medication with her at all times after surviving pancreatic cancer, and needs to take her pills every time she eats.
Lucy was looking for £50,000 for 25 per cent of her business.
While Lucy impressed with her pitch, she did get a ticking off from Deborah Meaden for winking at Peter when she was talking to her.

It didn't go unnoticed by Deborah who called her out and said: "It would be really helpful if you concentrated on me rather than winking at Peter and answering Touker's questions."
Lucy quickly apologised but Deborah had already made her mind up and decided to withdraw, while Steven Bartlett was next out.
It was decision time and first up was Touker, who was impressed by the concept and spoke about his own health and need for tablets, leading him to offer her £25,000 for a 20 per cent investment in her business.
This was followed by Peter who stunned the brand guru with a life-changing job offer within his portfolio, while also offering £25,000 for a 20 per cent investment in her product.

This was the first time anything like that had happened in the Den.
Sara Davies was the last Dragon to make an offer of 35 per cent for all the money, reducing to 25 per cent when she gets her money back.
Lucy then proposed that all three Dragons could team up, splitting the £50,000 investment among three Dragons for 40 per cent of the company.
Peter, Touker and Sara all agreed, leaving Lucy chuffed with the outcome.
Dragons' Den airs Thursdays at 8pm on BBC One.
