Who is Touker Suleyman? What is his background?

In 2015 The Sunday Times Rich List estimated Touker as having a fortune in excess of £200 million.
He has used part of his wealth to build what has been described as a "James Bond-style" house in south London.
The house is said to be so impressive he regularly rents it out to A-list celebs – including David and Victoria Beckham.
What is Dragons' Den?
Budding entrepreneurs get three minutes to pitch their business ideas to five multi millionaires who are willing to invest their own cash to kick-start the businesses.
After each pitch, the Dragons have the opportunity to ask questions about the venture.
The entrepreneurs don't always have to answer, but of course, what they choose not to address could very well affect the outcome.
A Dragon who, having heard the pitch, does not wish to invest, must declare themselves "out", implying that they leave the discussion.
When is Dragon's Den on TV?
Dragon's Den returns on Thursday, January 6, at 8pm on BBC One.
The nineteenth series will consist of fourteen new episodes, which will air the same time each week.
Don't worry if you miss any upcoming episodes, as they will all be available to watch on BBC iPlayer once aired.
