They’re as well-known for bragging about themselves as their apparent entrepreneurial talents, but what happens to those self-assured Apprentice contestants after the cameras stop rolling?

This year marks the show’s tenth anniversary and what a turbulent decade it has been.

Recent winners Ricky Martin, Tom Pellereau and last year’s Leah Totton have all benefited from a format shake-up that saw Lord Sugar invest £250,000 in their various start-ups.

However, none of the first six winners now work for the business magnate, after leaving their £100,000 jobs for pastures new.

In fact, arguably some of the biggest household names to emerge from the television series are those who didn’t come out on top, most notably Katie Hopkins and Luisa Zissman.


Hopkins, who withdrew from the penultimate episode of series three, citing problems regarding childcare, has become a controversial figure in the media, penning a Sun column and regularly voicing her outspoken views.

Meanwhile Zissman, who was a runner-up in series 9, has appeared in Celebrity Big Brother alongside Jim Davidson, Dappy and Ollie Locke.
