The popular BBC show The Apprentice returned this week after a two-year hiatus. There are 16 new success hungry entrepreneurs ready to compete for the prize of a £250,000 investment from business guru Lord Alan Sugar. Starting last Thursday, we can’t wait for more action in the the BBC Apprentice new series.
The successful show, which began back in 2005 focuses on a group of businesspeople competing in a series of challenges set by Lord Sugar. Sugar has two close business associates who act as observers, Baroness Brady and Tim Campbell.
Now in its 16th series, filming was originally planned for Spring 2020, but due to the pandemic, the BBC postponed filming for a later date. We couldn’t be more excited that it’s back, and even more so with two Yorkshire folk, 30-year-old, Harpreet Kaur, a dessert parlours owner from Huddersfield and 41-year-old. Shama Amin, who owns a children’s day nursery, from Bradford.
Who Is The Apprentice’s, Harpreet Kaur?
Describing herself as a ‘born leader’, Harpreet is looking to grow her expanding coffee and cake business Barni’s Dessert Parlour’, which began back in 2018.
Who Is The Apprentice’s, Shama Amin?
Amin, a mum of five, is passionate about child care and describes herself as loyal, determined and outspoken. About being on the apprentice she said “Being a lady of colour, wearing a headscarf as well, and the challenges that we face on a daily basis, I just want to be a living example for the Asian women and South Asian women out there.”
The first episode aired on Thursday night, and the candidates had to come up with a marketing campaign for a new cruise liner. The first episode was made for hilarious viewing with reams having to create a logo for a cruise company.
The boy’s logo was especially hilarious as the team created what can only be described as a mouldy banana, which was meant to be half-man, half-wave.
