Lubna, a mother of two, reveals that good role models were lacking in her life so she decided to become her own.

Souleyman plans to be brutally honest, bold and fight for his place by trying to keep Lord Sugar’s attention on him.

She says: “I never have problems, I only have solutions.”Iasha MasoodAge: 27
Occupation: Account Manager
Lives: Manchester
Iasha believes her “crazy, controversial, eccentric personality” will make her stand out, considering herself to be “the star that shines the brightest”. She says her “natural persona” will be enough to win the process. Iasha hopes that the other Candidates will underestimate her, she aims to keep her “enemies” close to her; saying “I can read people just by looking at their body language, they won’t realise it until it’s too late – and checkmate”.
She says: “I’m one fierce businesswoman with both sass and class.”Lottie LionAge: 19 
Occupation: Librarian 
Lives: Somerset
Lottie says she is “very cut throat” and insists that she is no push over. She believes her poise and her “powers of persuasion” are her greatest business qualities, noting that people with bad manners anger her and that she gets frustrated when things don’t adhere to her high standards. 
She says: “I bring ‘class’ to everything and ensure nothing I do is half-standard or tacky.” Pamela LairdAge: 29

Carina says she is a natural leader and that people latch onto her to benefit from the influence she carries.

She says: “I’m about 5 foot 1 inch tall - I’m like a pocket rocket, you don’t really want to mess with me.”Scarlett Allen-HortonAge: 32

Lives: West Midlands
Throughout her successful career in recruitment, Scarlett has found her upbeat personality to be a strong asset in winning a business deal, claiming that “people will often buy into her as a person”. Although she considers herself to be a “very good problem solver” she also admits to struggling to accept help from others, acknowledging she often overestimates her workload. Scarlett plans to apply the same tactic she uses in all aspects of her life; “working the hardest and the smartest to be the best”.

She says: “I’m definitely the epitome of ‘don’t judge a book by its cover’ because what you see is not what you get.” Lewis EllisAge: 28
Occupation: Digital Marketing Project Manager
Lives: Lancashire
A self-proclaimed “maverick” who doesn’t like to follow the rules, Lewis is confident his competitiveness and determination will see him through the process.  He admits he struggles to hide his true feelings in his facial expressions, and says his confidence is often mistaken for arrogance but says “I don’t think I’m better than anyone else”.
He says: “I may not be the smartest guy in the room, but I’ll sure as hell work harder.” Ryan-Mark ParsonsAge: 19
Occupation: Luxury Womenswear Consultant
Lives: South East London
As the youngest candidate, Ryan-Mark is ready to prove that age is irrelevant when it comes to business, describing himself as “a 60-year-old trapped in a teenager’s body”. He is an award winning public speaker and says Queen Elizabeth II is his role model, admiring her ‘no-nonsense persona’. Despite believing his best asset to be his ability to “forge a connection with anyone” he admits “he’s not afraid to be ruthless when it comes to the other candidates”.
He says: “I am the epitome of luxury.” Riyonn FarsadAge: 30
Occupation: Events Manager
Lives: South London
Riyonn sees his personality as his best asset; “I am fun, smart and always get on with everyone – I have never come across anyone who doesn’t get on with me.” Riyonn strives to live by the mantra “why work for someone else, when you can work for yourself and be the best at that”. Amongst his work as a freelance Events Manager and other ventures, he has invented his own party card-based game and says he has “a little black book full of multi-million-pound ideas”.
He says: “I will use my poker face and tactics to always come out on top.”
