The 28-year-old is competing against 17 candidates in this year’s The Apprentice.

The BBC reality show returns at 9pm this evening, and with it, a £250,000 investment for the winner’s business.

Jeff lives and works in Canary Wharf as an analyst for American investment bank JP Morgan.

He has practiced hip hop dancing several times a week for the last decade, even performing at the O2 Arena.

He has been a fan of The Apprentice since his teens and says his smooth moves will help whisk him to a win.

“I bring character, charm and swagger to the table,” he said. “Coupled with my professional and educational experience, I am sure I will be able to separate myself from the rest.”

The television show has helped boost the public profile of Katie Hopkins and US President Donald Trump.
