*This post has been updated
The return of Celebrity Apprentice to our screens in 2021 is sure to set tongues wagging as Channel 9 pulls out all stops to reinvigorate the format which helped Donald Trump become President of the United States.
Australian businessman Mark Bouris has been fired and replaced by his UK counterpart Lord Alan Sugar, who has hosted the BBC version since 2005.
Nine has already announced Married At First Sight star Martha Kalifatidis, fitness guru Michelle Bridges, radio presenter Michael ‘Wippa’ Wipfli and Australian Ninja Warrior contestant Olivia Vivian will take part in the series.
Now TV Blackbox can reveal the remaining cast.
Janine Allis (Advisor) – Star of Shark Tank on 10 and founder of Boost Juice
Lorna Jane Clarkson (Advisor) – Creator of the Lorna Jane brand of activewear for women, and owner of a chain of retail outlets that market the clothes
Ross Noble – Comedian
Anthony Callea – Entertainer
Rob Shehadie – Actor/Comedian
Alex Hayes – Instagram Star
David Genat – Winner Survivor All Stars
Shayna Blaze – Australian interior designer, television personality
The names came to light after an online sleuth tracked the social media accounts of the celebrities and quickly noticed a pattern emerging. One contestant, in particular, went and followed each person once production began.
