She says: “Women are like teabags – you don't know how strong they are until you put them in hot water".

Who is Sarah Lynn?

Sarah Lynn is the owner of high-end, grown-up confectionary company Sweets in the City.

In her Blind Date-esque audition tape, she compared Lord Alan Sugar to a lemon sherbert: "he is bright and firm and crunchy on the outside, but I think in the middle theres a big bit of fizz and bang", and herself to Margaret Thatcher: "I'm tough, I'm a lady that's not for turning, like she was," she says, "I think the future of UK business is going to be in the hands of the few that are willing to get their hands dirty, and I'm definitely one of them".

What can we expect from Sarah?

If her audition tape is anything to go by, plenty of sweet-related puns, and a fair amount of tenacity.


The Apprentice airs Wednesdays at 9pm on BBC1.
