GEMMA Collins is “top choice” to star in Celebrity Apprentice when the ¬†show makes a comeback after a decade.
The show will be part of Comic Relief just like it was in 2007 and 2009.
With Gemma’s no-nonsense attitude and savvy business skills, she is bound to be a big hit on the show.
A source told the Daily Star: ‚ÄúIt feels like the right time to bring it back. It‚Äôs been 10 years since it last aired, but The Apprentice is still a popular show with a strong format. Top brass at the BBC all agreed it would be great to have the celeb version back on screen.‚ÄĚ
According to the paper a leaked memo reveals: ‚ÄúThe show allows celebrities to participate in this business challenge format under the watchful eye of Lord Sugar.‚ÄĚ
It adds that ‚Äúviewers will see an impressive array of celebrity minds work their skill and contacts to make this an unforgettable programme to make Red Nose Day 2019 a huge success‚ÄĚ.
Filming is due to start later this year before it airs early next year.
The producers are now on the look out for 10 famous faces to take part.
An insider said: ‚ÄúGemma‚Äôs scared of Alan Sugar and doesn‚Äôt want to be made to look like a fool but she is considering it.
‚ÄúProducers only want one reality name on the show and Gemma was the BBC‚Äôs top choice as they know she will bring the fun and humour element as well as having a massive social media influence to promote the show.‚ÄĚ
A regular series of The Apprentice will air later this year on the BBC.
We have contacted Gemma’s rep for a comment.
Last week‚Äôs episode saw the usually placid Bobby have to be restrained as he lashed at out Arg after a joke he made about Gemma got back to her.
In tonight‚Äôs show Bobby and Gemma reflect on what happened with Gemma admitting that she‚Äôs noticed that her boyfriend can be a bit of a gossip.
Later Gemma goes to confide in Chloe Sims who tells her she‚Äôs ‚Äúhad enough‚ÄĚ of Arg‚Äôs recent behaviour.
Meanwhile Arg finally approaches Bobby to apologise for twisting his words ‚Äď but is it too little too late?
