Christopher Farrell, 28, will be a candidate on series six of The Apprentice. Previously, he worked as a Royal Marine Commando who has served his country from 1998-2008 having seen action in Iraq, Northern Island, Kosovo and Afghanistan and for the last two years has worked as a mortgage broker. He describes himself as "focused and driven" and is originally from Cheshire. He is also enthusiastic about health and fitness and is a keen golfer.
Less than a week before broadcast of the premier episode of series six it has been revealed that Farrell has a heavy criminal record; he was taken to task by the police in September 2009 after he was caught in possession of an extendable baton and a knuckle duster, he is at current being taken to task again due to his financial irregularities and was fired three months into his first job for watching adult pornography whilst at work. This has caused much embarrassment amongst the BBC.
