How did Curren Brady get into The Apprentice?

Curren and Lord Sugar know each other from their businesses and move in similar circles.

Brady became Alan Sugar’s assistant on The Apprentice in 2009.

She appeared as a guest interviewer on the fourth series, The Apprentice, in 2008, interviewing the last five.

Prior to that, she was a member of the BBC Comic Relief Does The Apprentice project, for which she raised over £ 750,000.

Her interview role led to a return to the show’s fifth series, and in August 2009 it was announced that she would replace Margaret Mountford as assistant to Alan Sugar.

Since then, she has become known for her tough, loving approach to candidates and is not afraid to criticize poor performance in order to push them further.

How is Curren related to football?

While working at Sport Newspapers for David Sullivan, where she became a director at the age of 20, Curren spotted an advertisement in the Financial Times for the sale of Birmingham City Football Club.

She convinced Sullivan to buy the club and let her run it, becoming managing director when she was 23 years old.

Curren faced sexism at the club – in one notorious incident when she first got on the bus, the player apparently said, “From here I can see your boobs.”

Brady told him, “When I sell you to Crewe, you can’t see them from there, can you?” and the player was immediately sold.

She is currently the Vice Chairman of West Ham United.

Brady was the director of Birmingham City at the age of 23 and became vice chairman of West Ham United in 2010.
