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.
