Dragons’ Den panelist Duncan Bannatyne also has a new show. It’s called Beat The Bank. As he tells Digital Spy, “This is a show where I take a young couple from the general public, and I ask them if they want to leave their money in the bank or if they want to take a risk with it. I introduce them to some experts: one in antiques, one in art, one in wine. These experts claim that if you give them £10,000, you can get a much better rate than from a bank. I remind the couple that there are risks involved and it’s left for them to decide what to do.”

Kevin Wicks founded BBCAmerica.com's Anglophenia blog back in 2005 and has been translating British culture for an American audience ever since. While not British himself—he was born and raised in St. Louis, Missouri—he once received inordinate hospitality in London for sharing the name of a dead but beloved EastEnders character. His Anglophilia stems from a high school love of Morrissey, whom he calls his "gateway drug" into British culture.
