Karren Brady has addressed what it is really like filming with Lord Sugar on The Apprentice as she opens up about the ‘highs and lows’ of the show. 

The businesswomen, 54, joined the hit BBC show in 2010 and has since been an aide for Lord Sugar alongside Tim Campbell for 13 years. 

Karren has revealed that everyone involved in the series, including Lord Sugar are extremely supporting of one another especially on the long travel and filming days. 

Speaking to The Mirror, she said: ‘We all have to support each other through the highs and lows of filming because you get them and when it is literally unrelenting at the time, and when you get sick or you don’t feel very well you need to rely on each other to help you through. From that point of view, it’s a real privilege.

‘But, it’s the outcomes, that’s really what this show is all about – Alan helping people start businesses, giving them his own money and his time and then creating businesses.

‘Some have sold their businesses for millions of pounds, some are in the process of building businesses worth millions pounds and I think that’s a real credit to the longevity of the show, how authentic it is and the quality of the outcomes.’

The latest series will see the new candidates begin their journey to secure a £250,000 from Lord Sugar. 

Aides Karren and Tim, who won the first series, will be watching over the two teams as they host corporate away days. 

It comes after Karren admitted that trying to keep a straight face is chaos when the show’s contestants make a mess of a challenge.

The BBC star stepped out on Thursday’s This Morning after the BBC show saw a hapless team use crumble mix to make fish cakes.

Shocked by the team’s awkward mistake, This Morning presenters Rochelle Humes, 34, and Rylan Clark, 35, asked the motivational speaker how she keeps it together.

Rylan asked her: ‘Do you ever not go, what are you doing?’ 

Smirking, Karren admitted: ‘Well I think it was total chaos.

Rylan chimed in: ‘There it is, the Karren face, the Karren face. The face of fear,’ as a clip of her on The Apprentice trying to guide a team to the finish line was shown. 

The business executive, who was joined on the show by fellow star Tim Campbell, 46, then admitted that her ‘Karren face’ is actually her look of exasperation.

It comes as Lord Sugar is currently on the hunt for his next ‘big time’ business partner and someone that is going to make him millions.

And after whittling down thousands of applications and holding countrywide auditions, the mogul, 76, was horrified to discover that his latest recruits had made him a financial loss during the show’s first task.

The 18 candidates are challenged with hosting a luxury away day in the Scottish Highlands but the paying customers are left far from satisfied.

An embarrassing cock-up in the kitchen resulted in one team garnishing fish cakes in sweet crumble instead of breadcrumbs as the rival group served up cold food 45 minutes after it had left the oven.

The mistakes didn’t go unnoticed by Lord Sugar’s trusted aides Karren and Tim who shuddered with pity over the contestant’s shambolic efforts.

Split into men and women’s teams, Karren, who oversaw the females, said the fish cakes were one of the worst things she had ever tasted. 

She added: ‘It’s obviously crumble on a fishcake… it is disgusting.’

Lord Sugar, who’s been at the helm of the BBC show for the past 18 years, says the useless display from the candidates is the reason why he doesn’t oversee the tasks himself.
