Northern Ireland Entrepreneur to feature on new “Make Me a Millionaire Inventor” TV series
A Northern Ireland inventor is to feature in a new satellite TV business series which is due to air this Sunday.The series will be going out on channel Pick on 4th May at 7pm (Channel 11 on Freeview, Channel 152 on Sky and Channel 180 on Virgin) . Declan McDonnell, from Trillick Co Tyrone, is owner and inventor of the Xpanda Bra, a maternity nursing bra with adjustable cup sizes, which enables it to fit not only throughout the pregnancy, but throughout breastfeeding too, adapting along with your changing body.

Declan is one of only a handful of contestants throughout the UK and Ireland that were invited to take part in “Make Me a Millionaire Inventor”, a new feel-good business series which delves into the patent archives in search of some of the many brilliant inventions that haven’t yet fulfilled their full potential.

Every episode, which is being broadcast on satellite channel PICK, sees two specialist presenters pick an original invention each. They pay a surprise visit to the original inventors to re-ignite their old passion for their products, and then provide support from a team of experts to help the inventor’s structure a business plan, produce and market-test a prototype and coach them in how to pitch their project. Finally, the inventors like Declan make a pitch to potential investors and industry buyers, who are ready to fund production and help the inventors hit the high street.

Speaking of his participation on the show, Declan said: “I was astonished when the presenters arrived on my doorstep out of the blue and explained to me that they would work with me on my patent idea as part of the “Make Me a Millionaire Inventor” programme. My involvement with the show has been really enjoyable and informative, and has really broadened my horizons about the potential for my product and the business overall.”

Declan remained tight lipped about how he got on in the series, but said that it is well worth the watching to see how he progressed throughout the show, and said that involvement with it has really made him get out and start XPANDING his business.
