There have been many weird, wonderful, silly and shocking stories that candidates on The Apprentice reveal when the show starts, but hopeful Melody Hossaini's tale seems far more dramatic than most. Speaking before the start of the show next month, Melody revealed she'd been kidnapped and held at gunpoint before.

"What makes me different from other candidates is that I come from a different upbringing," she said in her audition video. "I've come from a different way of thinking. I was born amid war in Iran - our neighbours were bombed and we fled.

"I've been held at gunpoint in my own home. I've been kidnapped. I've had all sorts of different experiences."

The 26-year-old added that she wanted to be "more than average" and had worked "10 times harder" than anyone else in business.
