Paul Peschisolido: Canadian soccer legend and Karren Brady's husband!

The Apprentice is back for its fifteenth series on the BBC with more cringe-worthy candidates and business bust-ups than ever.

Karren Brady is also back for another year as Lord Alan Sugar’s adviser, along with Claude Littner. But since her return to our screens, it is one of her family members who is getting all of the attention.

Karren’s daughter Sophia Peschisolido is the talk of the town of late, thanks to her good looks. And it’s no surprise where she gets it from when taking a look at her parents!

We thought it time to delve into the Peschisolido family.
