The Apprentice continues on BBC One tonight and will see candidate Shama Amin withdraw from the 2022 series.
The third episode will see Lord Alan Sugar challenge the contestants to create and brand a new non-alcoholic drink before pitching and selling their product to leading retailers.
Before Lord Sugar sets the task at Mercato Metrapolitano in Mayfair, Shama will quit the process.
Here’s everything you need to know about why Shama has left the show and whether another candidate will return to replace her.
Why has Shama Amin quit The Apprentice?
The Apprentice candidate Shama Amin has quit the show due to health reasons.
The aspiring entrepreneur’s exit is due to be addressed in tonight’s episode, where she tells Lord Alan Sugar that she will be leaving due to her rheumatoid arthritis.
In the upcoming episode, the mum-of-five tells the Amstrad mogul: ‘I would just like to say something, Lord Sugar, if that’s okay?
‘I suffer from a condition called rheumatoid arthritis.
‘Because of medical reasons, due to this process being so physically demanding, despite the efforts the whole team has made to support me, I’ve had to make a difficult decision to leave the process.’
Rheumatoid arthritis is a long-term condition that causes pain, swelling, and stiffness in the joints. The condition usually affects the hands, feet, and wrists.
Who will replace Shama on The Apprentice?
Shama’s exit means that 13 candidates remain in the running to become Lord Sugar’s next business partner.
It is understood that she will not be replaced on the competition series.
So far, Lord Sugar has fired Conor Gilsenan and Harry Mahmood.
The Apprentice airs Thursdays at 9pm on BBC One.
