This time around, Lord Sugar will be joined by former champion Tim Campbell, who takes over from Claude Littner as Lord Sugar's aide alongside Baroness Karren Brady.

There are some strong contenders in the recently announced The Apprentice 2022 line-up, including Amy Anzel. But does she have what it takes to secure the £250,000 business investment from Lord Sugar? Here's everything we know about the beauty brand owner so far.

New York native Amy started her beauty business a little later in life following a career in sales, showbiz and jingles. Despite not finding her passion straight away, her brand Hollywood Browzer already has almost 50k followers on Instagram.

As well as her growing business, Amy is also a presenter for shopping channel QVC UK.

What has Amy Anzel said about joining The Apprentice?

Speaking of joining The Apprentice 2022 line-up, Amy said: "I can be nice when I need to be, but when I unfortunately have to be a bitch, I will."

She also described herself as "determined, persistent and a tough boss", so the others better watch out.
