The Apprentice is finally here and fans of the show can tune in on January 6th at 9pm to watch the very first episode of the new series.

This series will feature former winner Tim Campbell as one of Lord Sugar’s aides, due to the fact that series regular Claude Littner won’t be taking part due to medical reasons.

One of the contestants already has people’s attention due to his love of Nicki Minaj and previous television appearances. Here is everything we know about Navid Sole…

Who is Navid Sole?

Navid Sole is a 27-year-old pharmacist from North London appearing on this season of The Apprentice.

Speaking to the BBC about his thoughts on appearing on the show, Navid said: “Nothing intimidates me because I just feel like I’m a strong character, strong person, strong mindset.”

In an Instagram post, Navid describes himself as a pharmacist who “loves to rap, adores his designer outfits and does not give a sh*t was people have to say.”

Navid is also a Nicki Minaj super fan (also known as a ‘Barb’) and runs a fan page on Instagram for the rapper which boasts over 380 thousand followers. The page is actually followed by Nicki herself!

On January 5th, Navid shared an excited post telling fans that Nicki Minaj liked and commented on his BBC Apprentice profile. He wrote:

“I AM IN SHOCK THAT MY IDOL THE ONE AND ONLY NICKI MINAJ @nickiminaj HAS COMMENTED AND LIKED MY POST ON THE SHOW I WILL BE FEATURED on @apprenticeuk . This is crazy 😭😭😭😭😭 I love you Nicki @nickiminaj thank you for all the support sis for making me true to myself and for what I believe in. NICKI HAS OVER 160 million followers and she has noticed me!! Barbz I love you.”

On his website, Navid writes: “I’m your boii Navid Sole from North London, living in a world of healthcare, celebs, fashion, rap and TV. During the day I am your professional kid from the block but at night the wild side pops out and honey child you have not seen nothing yet purrrr…”

Here’s why you may recognise Navid…

You may recognise Navid whilst he battles his way to be hired by Lord Alan Sugar, and this is because The Apprentice is not his first television rodeo. In fact, in 2019, Navid appeared on Rich Kids Go Skint, a Channel 5 show were privileged young people swap out their life of luxury to experience life on the breadline.

In the same year, Navid starred in the second season of BBC’s Eating With My Ex.

The Apprentice contestant also appeared in season 7 episode 75 of Judge Rinder, which you can catch on ITV.

Navid shared a clip from the show on his Instagram and captioned it: “I Had such an amazing time filming @judgerinder and it was an honour meeting @judgerinder trying to fight my case for my @versace treasures.”
