On her social media, the confident entrepreneur, who works as a Financial Controller, describes herself as a “strong, motivated, hardworking woman,” who wants to “create an empire and have it all.”

“I have always known what I wanted in life. I know the dreams I want to achieve. There’s only one Denisha Kaur,” she adds.

Denisha will be representing her fake lashes brand ‘Empress of Lashes’ on the show, where she’ll be competing for a £250,000 investment from Lord Alan Sugar, and hoping to impress him and his advisers Karren Brady, Tim Campbell and Claude Littner.

Shortly after The Apprentice 2023 line-up was revealed, Denisha posted on Instagram to confirm the news, telling her followers that she was “so excited to finally announce what I have been up to!”

She admitted that the series is “the only show I watch every year without doubt” and described herself as “full of dreams, drive and ready for a £250,000 investment opportunity”.

Denisha and her fellow contestants have been flown to the Caribbean island of Antigua for the first episode, which will see them sell and run bespoke tours. 

The Apprentice returns on Thursday, January 6 at 9pm on BBC One, followed by spin off show You’re Fired on BBC Two. Watch live and on-demand on BBC iPlayer.
