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.

Having a brand new kitchen is something that lots of people want but can only dream of. Sadly keeping up to date and making our living spaces as nice as they can be is a costly and incredibly stressful business. Even a fresh coat of paint makes all the difference but isn’t easy or quick.

Who wouldn’t love the chance to go on a shopping spree. Imagine being able to walk into a shop and choose whatever your heart desires without having to worry about how much it costs.
