THE APPRENTICE is back for another year and it’s brought with it another batch of delightfully obnoxious candidates.
Among the latest intake of 18 ambitious businessmen and women is Andrew Brady. Here’s all we know about Lord Sugar’s new candidate…
Who is Andrew Brady and what’s his background?
Andrew Brady is a 26-year-old Project Engineer from Cheshire.
He currently works in the aerospace industry and says that his best business quality is his relentless work ethic.
He cites his coal miner grandad as an inspiration as “he was the hardest worker you could ever know”.
Andrew admits that he sometimes struggles to hold his tongue, especially if people are not pulling their weight – which can get him into trouble.
He believes that his confidence will see him go far in the show.
He says: “I don’t blow smoke up someone’s behind. If someone deserves credit, I will give them it.”
What is The Apprentice and when is on BBC One?
The Apprentice is a hit BBC reality show, now about to enter its thirteenth series, featuring hour-long episodes.
Each series of the programme aims to find a new apprentice for billionaire business mogul and Amstrad founder Lord Alan Sugar, who’s worth £1.4bn.
The show began in 2005 and has a US equivalent that kicked off in 2004, with Donald Trump in Lord Alan’s equivalent role.
There are celebrity and junior versions of the UK show, too.
After returning on October 4, The Apprentice is on every Wednesday at 9pm on BBC One.
