Forget about the ice cream man, the DNA man is coining it in in New York...

15.1n009.DNA.C--300x300 If you’re looking for a great new UK business idea, you might want to take a leaf out of the book of New Yorker Jared Rosenthal and his ‘Who’s The Daddy?’ van.

He drives around, offering DNA tests to anyone who wants to stump up about £250 and might be unsure whether they are actually the father of their child or not. Hand over the cash, let Jared take a cheek swab and within a couple of days your results will be back from the lab. Perfect.

Jared told CBS News: “"They flag us down, they pull us over, they talk to us. Sometimes, because of the nature of the services, they want to be a little more discreet about it, but they do come or they'll call the number.”

“There's a lot of difficult situations and tough moments and heartbreak," adding there are happy endings as well. There's a lot of good news that we're able to deliver and there's a lot of happy moments.”

Sounds to us as if the UK is crying out for a service like this. Just get Jeremy Kyle to endorse in and advertising campaign and you’ll clean up…

    Can't you just ask a hospital or GP to have one done?
