Most ridiculous quote: “I’m a very good looking, erm… guy. I would rate myself nine out of 10. It’ll be a 10 as soon as I get back in the shape that I want to be in.”

Who is James White?

No, he’s not just a very good looking, erm… guy. James is the owner of IT Recruitment company Right Time Recruitment, whose website is mysteriously offline. A business graduate from Keele University, James has worked as a recruiting consultant and – since August this year – a motivational speaker.

What can we expect from James?

If you’re anticipating a wheeler-dealer then you may be right – James used to have the nickname ‘Del Boy’. And he shouldn’t have a problem if a huge Apprentice fight breaks out: he enjoys white collar boxing as a hobby. Bring it on.


The Apprentice airs Wednesdays at 9pm on BBC1
