Our own answer to The Apprentice may have fallen by the wayside here, but the UK's version is still going strong, and even has an Irish representative this year that fans of RTE's reality show Fade Street may recognise.

37-year-old Dillon St. Paul has been announced as one of this year's Apprentices, who has previously worked as an art director on Irish magazines such as Stellar and Kiss. Those of you who watched Fade Street will remember that he worked alongside Vogue and Louise when they were with VIP Publishing.

On his Apprentice profile, Dillon describes himself as talented, kind and very funny. He intends to be ‘Machiavellian’ about tasks and says he will tell white lies if he needs to. Dillon said; "Sometimes batting the eyelashes can get you a lot in business. Hence, the mascara comes in handy – so they can see those lashes."

Sounds like he might be a bit of fun anyways. Will it be enough to impress Lord Sugar? We'll have to wait and see, but best of luck Dillon!

Take a look at his audition below;

The Apprentice returns to BBC1 on Thursday, 6th of October. You can have a nose at Dillon's competition here.
