In the fir­ing line... will Bucks’ own Alek­san­dra sur­vive an­other week?

YOU’VE prob­a­bly heard the new se­ries of The Ap­pren­tice is back on our screens and that one of the 18 can­di­dates is a res­i­dent of Che­sham Bois.

Mother of three and com­mu­ni­ca­tions con­sul­tant Alek­san­dra King was tempted to Bucks from North Lon­don by our great schools, green pas­tures and com­muter links into the city.

When we spoke to her be­fore the show aired, she said: “Be­ing an an­a­lyst, I lit­er­ally had spread­sheets of com­muter towns and vil­lages with stats on crime, league ta­bles and just about any­thing you can think of.

“Af­ter the anal­y­sis a lit­tle gem called Amer­sham popped up as the win­ner and we re­ally en­joy liv­ing here.”

Alek­san­dra caused a bit of a stir be­fore she even made it on to our tele­vi­sion screens af­ter snip­pets from her au­di­tion video were re­leased on­line and she re­vealed that she spoke cat!

In the two tasks so far Alek­san­dra hasn’t had to use her fe­line lin­guis­tic skills, how­ever she has had to model jeans and flog an­tiques while boast­ing “The sheer en­ergy that I am go­ing to bring is go­ing to mimic that of a nu­clear ex­plo­sion.”

Un­for­tu­nately Alek­san­dra and the girls’ team Nebula lost the first task and an­other mem­ber of Nebula was fired in last week’s ex­tra­or­di­nary episode where both teams failed.

This week’s task is to do with sell­ing candy, and Alek­san­dra is go­ing to be project man­ager as the teams are be­ing mixed up.

Whilst she’s not made a huge im­pact on the process she has, rather more im­por­tantly, not em­bar­rassed her­self too much ei­ther. Oh ex­cept unashamedly rock­ing out to Tay­lor Swift’s Shake It Off.

She means busi­ness: Alek­san­dra King hopes to im­press Lord Sugar

Who’s hired?: Which of this year’s co­horts will be­come Lord Sugar’s busi­ness part­ner?
