A GLOSSOP entrepreneur is one of 16 candidates set to battle it out in the new series of The Apprentice.

Starting on BBC1 at 9pm next Wednesday, March 21, the eighth series will see 32-year-old Adam Corbally’s bid to impress multi-millionaire tycoon, Lord Sugar.

A father-of-two, Adam first job was stacking bread at his local Co-op. He now runs a wholesale and retail fruit and veg business and manages his own property portfolio.

The winner will become Lord Sugar’s business partner and earn an investment to the value of £250,000 founded on the basis of their business idea.

“I’m looking for somebody who is going to put themselves forward and show me that they have got the aggression and business acumen to be my partner,” said Lord Sugar.

To help him keep an eye on how the candidates perform over the 12 challenging tasks, he will be aided once again by his trusted advisors Nick Hewer and Karren Brady.
