One of the stars of this year’s BBC Apprentice has Longford roots.
Stephen Brady, who has made it through the first two rounds of Sir Alan Sugar’s boardroom, is originally from Mullingar but his father, James Brady hails from Abbeylara.
Businessman Stephen, who left Mullingar when he was seven, is currently based in Vienna. He made it through ten rounds of auditions to beat over thirty thousand other applicants to earn a place on one of the BBC’s most popular programmes.
Much of the recording of the programme has already been done, but fans will have to stay tuned to see if Stephen goes further in the competition. Last week, the other Irish contestant Jane McEvoy from Kilkenny was booted off the programme after her team failed their task.
