Claire Young was a candidate on the fourth series of the UK edition of The Apprentice. Claire became the runner-up after losing out to Lee McQueen in a final boardroom session.


Claire was born in Johannesburg, on December 20th 1969 and she was educated in a Convent. She took up a degree in Equine Science while attending a year at medical school.

Claire then became Club 18-30 holiday rep in Magaluf which caused controversy after it was revealed she would often appear topless. Later on though, she realised she wanted to be a Category Buying Manager, and from there she became a Senior Retail Buyer.

The Apprentice was not Claire's first hopes of being seen on television, as she auditioned multiple times for the reality television series Big Brother, though she was unsuccessful. Clare's inspirational figure is Oprah Winfrey, and at her work was nicknamed "the rottweiler" due to her ability to go after whatever she wants.
