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 Elizabeth McKenna. Here’s all we know about Lord Sugar’s new candidate…

Who is Elizabeth McKenna and what’s her background?

Elizabeth McKenna is a 39-year-old florist owner from Nottinghamshire.

Elizabeth describes herself as a ‘slightly bonkers country girl’ and has a love of dogs and horses.

She is a hands on practical person and will have a go at doing any job.

She thinks her killer business instincts mean she’s good at making snap decisions, she says what she thinks and shoots from the hip.

She says: “My big feet are good for two things; getting me into trouble as they’re as big as my mouth and I constantly get them stuck in it, but… they also kick butt.”

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.

It starts tomorrow (Monday, October 4) and airs at the same time as The Detectives: Murder On The Streets on BBC Two, Doc Martin on ITV and Grand Designs on Channel 4.

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.

It aims to recreate the toughest of business environments and tasks for its set of contestants, but it is often very funny due to the incompetence and arrogance of the competitors.

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.

Lord Sugar fires the director of the trailer for the new season of The Apprentice – before the end of the teaser itself!
