Lubna Farhan has been a finance manager at Tesco's headquarters since August 2019, according to her LinkedIn profile.

On the first episode of the show she described herself, saying: "I am disgustingly ambitious, I am extremly competetive. I am Lord Sugar's next business partner."

The 33-year-old from Luton graduated in 2007 with a first class degree in accounting from the University of Hertfordshire in Hatfield.

The mother-of-two has already clashed with fellow contestant Lottie Lion, a 19-year-old librarian, who according to The Sun said: "Shut up Ghandi (sic)" to Lubna in a WhatsApp group chat, and that she would "knock her out".

Lottie told the Press Association the Gandhi comment was "taken out of context", but the show is investigating.

The Apprentice airs weekly on BBC One at 9pm on Wednesdays, and it will continue to show for approximately another 10 weeks.
