The Apprentice's Karren Brady reveals she said no to Strictly Come Dancing

Karren Brady (The Apprentice 2015)

The Apprentice star Karren Brady has revealed she's turned down a number of reality shows.

The businesswoman has been appearing on BBC One's The Apprentice as one of Lord Sugar's aides for the past five years but has no plans to turn her hand to any other TV.

Speaking to The Sunday Times magazine at the weekend, the Baroness told how she had been offered plenty of opportunities but said no every time.

"I’ve been offered my own TV show and been asked to do Strictly Come Dancing , cooking shows, even ice-skating," she said. "But c'mon, what serious business person does that?"

Karren continued: "I’m not a TV wannabe. I won’t be flogging you a keep-fit DVD this Christmas."

She added: "Although I do The Apprentice, I have no interest in being a TV personality."

On working on The Apprentice with boss Lord Sugar, Karren went on to say: “Working with Alan Sugar is different.

"Like a lot of people I work with, he made his own success through grit and determination. I love the fact that he had a tough upbringing, but didn’t sit there thinking the world owed him a favour."

The Apprentice 2015 continues this Wednesday night on BBC One at 9PM.
