Chorley entrepreneur a candidate in latest series of The Apprentice

The Apprentice returns with 18 brand new candidates battling it out for Lord Sugar's £250,000 investment and mentorship, including an entrepreneur from Chorley.

Paul Bowen is one of two pie company experts entering the process, and prides his business on big name clients such as Manchester City Football Club.

He’s looking to unite his passion for business with Lord Sugar’s strategic expertise.

‘’I’m seeking investment of Lord Sugar’s time and knowledge,’’ said Paul.

‘’I have great ideas and great business acumen, along with a work hard attitude. Planning and organisation is my weakness.

‘’But with Lord Sugar’s strategy and my passion and ideas, I could make him 'Lord of the Pies.'

‘’I’ve only failed in small ways, as that’s the only way to see what works. My biggest failure personally has been with the stock market. Let’s just say I won’t be swapping pies for shares any time soon!

‘’I’ve raced in British Motocross, road bikes and recently been riding speedway at a semi-professional level. I’m bike mad!’’

The new series of The Apprentice begins on BBC1 on Thursday, February 1.
