A former Sheffield student who calls himself 'one perfect guy' will attempt to avoid being told 'you're fired' on the latest series of The Apprentice.

Samuel Boateng, who studied at Sheffield Hallam University, will join 17 others in a battle to win a contact from Lord Sugar in the BBC One programme, which begins next Thursday (October 6).

After graduating from the BSc information technology and business course, Samuel has gone on to work for various companies, rising quickly through management. He is currently an area sales manager responsible for managing and generating new business for over 700 businesses across London.

He said: "My ability in developing new and innovative ideas is one of my strongest business skills. I have excellent public speaking abilities. My creativity, my passion, my charm, and my likeability all roll into one, creating one perfect guy.”

Samuel is also involved in a number of charitable projects, and works to support young professionals.

He will be joined on this year's programme by Doncaster businesswoman Frances Bishop, who described herself as a 'feisty pocket rocket'.
