Job: Music and wellness entrepreneur

Location: London

Tre has high hopes for his wellness business and is drawing on his experience from other industries to see him through the process.

Looking back on his biggest business success to date, Tre said: "In terms of an enduring business legacy, I would have to say my business partnership with my brother Ashley, forming the band – Architechs.

"There's something truly special about creative success, it goes way beyond just the financials. Though my brother is no longer alive, the music we made in this partnership certainly is - and will impact future generations too."

As for his biggest business challenge, Tre admitted that it is when he had to give up DJing due to severe tinnitus.

What has Tre Lowe said about joining The Apprentice?

As for why he believes he deserves Lord Sugar's investment, Tre explained that he knows he is different from most people who have been on the show.

He added: "Being slightly older, from a creative background and with internationally successful music. I believe the future of entrepreneurism will be about the personal stories, challenges and triumphs of the founders.

"I have proven success, and I am utterly passionate about impacting people's lives. I believe this is a proven formula for massive success."

In a recent Q&A, Tre opened up about his favourite behind-the-scenes moment from filming the series. He revealed that when filming the advert for a vegan alternative to cheese with Flo, he had to teach Flo how to rap.

He continued: "There was one part when she was rapping where she suddenly jumped five feet in the air and landed on her bottom. Nobody was expecting that and the whole room was in hysterics. Flo and I couldn't stop laughing afterwards, we could barely continue, at one point I thought I would die of laughter!"
