Lindiwe Elissa Mngaza (born in January 1985 to Keslio and Gemma Mngaza) was a candidate on Series Four. She was fired in Week Five, making her the longest anyone had gone without being a team leader (although she was second in command, and this record was equalled in Series 7 by Ellie Reed). This firing was met with disappointment; she has said since that she did not have time to "showcase her skills".
At the age of three, she moved to Birmingham, living in Northfield, and attended King's Norton Girls' School. After leaving that, she went on to study performing arts at Solihull College, whilst running a business for two years. After that, she worked at Phones 4U. She claims to be in the top ten percent of earners despite being dyslexic (which would explain her respect for fellow dyslexic Richard Branson).
