The baby news comes shortly after fellow Apprentice star Thomas Skinner, who appeared in the 2019 series, confirmed he was expecting twins with his wife Sinéad.

"We are so happy to announce that 2 baby girls we be joining our little family in June this year," Skinner announced last month. "[Our son] Henry is going to be the best big brother.

"Yesterday we had a little gender reveal/baby shower at our home to let our family know the fantastic news of identical twin girls."

The Apprentice airs on BBC One, with spin-off series You're Fired airing immediately afterwards on BBC Two.
