LATHOM girl Jenna Whittingham debuted on British TV screens last night as one of the hopefuls aiming to impress Lord Sugar in the latest series of The Apprentice.
Jenna, 26, who studied at University of Central Lancashire’s Business School, comes to the popular BBC1 corporate talent search having already set up her own boutique in Penwortham and plans to open a second in Wrightington soon.
Due to strict secrecy rules surrounding the show, Jenna - who aims to be a millionaire by the age of 30 - is unable to speak about her experiences in the famous boardroom just yet.
But she said about her future plans: “I do hope to expand my business and have a chain of shops across the north west and maybe England.”
Hoping to be a millionaire by 30 she told the BBC, owning two shops of her own at this stage is just the start.
Jenna told Apprentice bosses her father is her role model, as both have overcome dyslexia to set up businesses.
Alan Whittingham runs his own horsebox business.
He said: “She’s done very well and she’s an accomplished young lady. I’m very proud.”
Last night’s episode is on BBC3 tonight at 7pm.
