Karren Brady: I don't want to be a 'TV wannabee'

Karren Brady doesn't want to be a "TV wannabe".

The 'Apprentice' star has been offered a stint on BBC One show 'Strictly Come Dancing' but insists she has no plans to become a television personality and would rather focus on being the vice-chairman of football club West Ham.

She shared: "Although I do 'The Apprentice', I have no interest in being a TV personality. I've been offered my own TV show and been asked to do 'Strictly Come Dancing', cooking shows, even ice-skating.

"But c'mon, what serious business person does that? I'm not a TV wannabe. I won't be flogging you a keep-fit DVD this Christmas."

The 46-year-old businesswoman also opened up about working with Lord Alan Sugar on the BBC One business show and admits she is always in awe of his "grit and determination".

She added to The Sunday Times magazine: "Working with Alan Sugar is different. Like a lot of people I work with, he made his own success through grit and determination. I love the fact that he had a tough upbringing, but didn't sit there thinking the world owed him a favour."
