An Apprentice candidate cheated on her now-husband in the show’s luxurious house whilst filming the BBC show, it has been reported.
Anisa Topan, 36, is said to have defied the show’s sex ban by bedding her 26-year-old competitor Andrew Brady during filming earlier this year, despite being engaged to her husband Tristan at the time.
The pair were living together in a multi-million pound house as they competed alongside 16 other candidates to win Lord Alan Sugar’s £250,000 business investment when they sneaked into Andrew’s bedroom one evening.
A source told The Sun: “Andrew has always been a bit of a playboy.
“There was a lot of sexual tension between them for days and one night they ended up exploring their feelings for each other.
“It’s natural for people to connect after living together.”
Andrew added to the publication: “I’m a bit of a ladies’ man, my mission on The Apprentice was to have fun, and I didn’t let myself down.
“I wasn’t surprised to hear people had been talking.”
It was previously reported that Apprentice bosses impose a strict sex ban on contestants, and even include it in the hopefuls’ show contracts.
A spokesperson for The Apprentice said: “We don’t comment on personal matters.”
Yahoo Celeb UK have contacted Anisa for comment.
Anisa and Andrew aren’t the first two candidates to be linked during this series of the show, with James White and Jade English previously reported to have become close after James split from his “heartbroken” fiancee.
