Jackie Fast says she is a trailblazer within the sponsorship industry

Who is Jackie Fast?

Jackie, 34, is a sponsorship consultant from London.

She sold her company in 2016 before publishing a business book a year later. Jackie credits herself as a trailblazer within the sponsorship industry and attributes her success to her positive attitude.

Jackie admits she can be very opinionated and isn’t good at taking criticism, but hopes her commercial mind will see her through the process.

She says: “I’m not intimidated by anybody, or anything.”

Who is on the show’s board with Lord Sugar?

Lord Sugar needs “eyes and ears” on the ground during each week’s tasks.

He used to be assisted by Nick Hewer and uber-shrewd Margaret Mountford.

But after legal aid Margaret left in 2009, West Ham CEO Karren Brady took over the role.

Then, in 2014, PR guru Nick left The Apprentice, and Claude Littner stepped in to replace him after years acting as one of the official interviewers during the CV round.

This year, Karren and Claude will both return to the show to spot who’s not pulling their weight during the tasks.

When does The Apprentice start on BBC One?

The Apprentice is a hit BBC reality show, now going into its 14th series, featuring hour-long episodes.

Each series of the programme aims to find a new apprentice for billionaire business mogul and Amstrad founder Lord Alan Sugar, who’s worth £1.4bn.

It aims to recreate the toughest of business environments and tasks for its set of contestants, but it is often very funny due to the incompetence and arrogance of the competitors.

It launched on BBC One on Wednesday, October 3.
