Dragons’ Den has had some pretty weird business ideas pitched on it over the years, and last night’s episode (Thursday, February 10) saw yet another one added to the ever-growing pantheon – Wype gel.
As always, it didn’t take long for viewers to start making fun of it. Plenty of memes were posted about it on Twitter, and we’re going to show you some of our favourites!
What happened on Dragons’ Den last night?
During last night’s show, Giorgia and her husband, Eli, pitched their “poo product”, Wype, to the Dragons.
Wype is a gel that can turn normal toilet paper into environmentally-friendly wet wipes.
The Dragons, and viewers, seemed interested at first, but when Giorgia and Eli went into more detail about the origin of their product, interest turned into disgust.
Explaining why they were making the gel, Eli said: “Dry doesn’t clean.”
“You wouldn’t clean your dishes with a dry washcloth and certainly, if you had poo on your arm, you wouldn’t be satisfied just wiping it with dry tissue,” he continued.
Peter Jones was confused, however. “So, you guys said this gel helps you when you have poo on your arm. I’m a bit confused if I have been doing it wrong all these years,” he said.
“In some nationalities, it’s acceptable to leave residue on their private parts,” Giorgia explained, much to the horror of viewers.

“Poo on your arm….this escalated quickly,” another surprised viewer said.
“I can smell it from here. Hoping nobody backs this [bleep],” a third wrote.
“Gagging after that clip on Dragons’ Den!!! As if people literally leave poo on themselves. No way would I invest in that,” another said.
