Who is Jade English and what's her background?
Jade English is 25 years old and lives in Manchester.
The bright young businesswomen works as a PR and marketing manager.
Jade creates content to advertise and enhance her clients’ presence on social media.
Ironic given that her social media presence appears to have been wiped from the face of the earth since the announcement that she will be on the show.
She believes she has the ability to pick up on people’s behaviours, and therefore finds it easy to make friends and build rapport.
She also thinks her greatest business skills are her creativity and passion.

Is Jade English in a relationship with fellow contestant James White?
It seems Jade didn't just get attract attention for her business prowess as it was reported the contestant had had a tryst with fellow Apprentice star James White.
The Sun's Dan Wootton revealed: "Two of this year’s wannabe entrepreneurs got down to some saucy antics away from the boardroom.
"And the pair even shared an intimate clinch in the show’s plush London mansion which houses the contestants.
"This was despite any sexual interaction being banned by producers."

A TV insider said: "Tension had been building between James and Jade during filming.
“There was clearly an attraction from the beginning. They’re both young and attractive people and they really got along during the process.
"They couldn’t resist getting to know each other that bit better during their time in the house.
“Afterwards they kept things going for a while, but relations have cooled off between them since filming ended."

What is The Apprentice and when is it on BBC One?
The Apprentice is a hit BBC reality show, now in its thirteenth series, featuring hour-long episodes.
It continues TONIGHT, Wednesday, November 8 at 9pm on BBC One.
Each series of the programme aims to find a new apprentice for billionaire business mogul and Amstrad founder Lord Alan Sugar, who's worth £1.4bn.
It aims to recreate the toughest of business environments and tasks for its set of contestants, but it is often very funny due to the incompetence and arrogance of the competitors.
The show began in 2005 and has a US equivalent that kicked off in 2004, with Donald Trump in Lord Alan's equivalent role.
There are celebrity and junior versions of the UK show, too.
After returning on October 4, The Apprentice is on every Wednesday at 9pm on BBC One.
