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 Danny Grant. Here’s all we know about Lord Sugar’s new candidate…
Who is Danny Grant and what’s his background?
Danny Grant is a 32-year-old business owner from Kent.
He believes his best quality is his loyalty, but warns he’s not “a doormat” and his trust shouldn’t be taken for granted.
He runs an e-retail cosmetic business but admits to being disorganised and regularly leaving things to the last minute.
He prides himself on being straightforward and honest, but can sometimes rub people up the wrong way “because the truth is hard to hear”.
He says: “I don’t get on with people with a stick up their arse”.
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.
