Marianne Rawlins, from Stamford, will be competing in BBC One's The Apprentice 2019 to win a £250,000 investment from Lord Sugar
A woman who lives in Stamford will be taking part in the upcoming series of The Apprentice.
Marianne Rawlins will be competing for an investment worth £250,000 from Lord Sugar for an original business idea on the BBC One show.
The 36-year-old follows on from Khadija Kalifa who took part in last year's series and also had strong connections to Stamford.
She is the owner of a risk management consultancy and moved from the USA to Britain two years ago.
Marianne sees conflict management as one of her strongest skills and admits she doesn't have a filter so may have to 'dial down her American-ness'.
She added: "I'm definitely the epitome of 'don't judge a book by its cover' because what you see is not what you get."
The programme starts on BBC One at 9pm on Wednesday, October 2, with the candidates facing a challenge in Cape Town, South Africa.
