Candidate on The Apprentice Navid Sole had an interesting start to life and has racked up a few TV appearances along the way, before featuring on the hit BBC show.

He has already gained some fans for his quirks and got a few laughs for his 'Est' catchphrase.

Navid said: "I am the Est of everything, which means I’m the cool-est, smart-est and wicked-est in business."

Fans were quick to point out that they thought he had stolen the phrase from WWE star Bianca Belair.

The quirky Londoner denied this: "I'm really getting so peed off by some of the comments that I took the EST from a WWE superstar. I did not know that EST was used by WWE superstar.

"I always say I'm the cool-est, it's my thing."

Some of Navid's quirks and TV experience may help him in attempting to stand out from the crowd of candidates on the show.

So who is he and where have we seen him on TV before?

Who is The Apprentice star Navid Sole?

Navid, now 27, was at one point an aspiring rapper from North London. He issued a statement after 'rude' comments calling him an anti-vaxxer.

The controversy seems to have arisen from his love for Nicki Minaj, when a now-deleted tweet from his account seemed to praise pop star Nicki Minaj for 'standing up' for the anti-vax community. This was after the American rapper tweeted misleading comments about Covid measures to her followers.

People have since claimed that Navid is not vaccinated, which was addressed in an Instagram Live to fans on Friday, January 7.

Navid said: "Let me make this really clear – I have been double vaccinated.

"As a matter of fact I had the Johnsons one…whatever it is I've done the vaccine, I did it ages ago. I just wanted to rectify that."

The Apprentice star Navid Sole's previous TV appearances

Before his appearance on The Apprentice, Navid has also appeared on shows like Judge Rinder in 2018 and an episode of Eating With My Ex.

Navid was a little shocked on Eating With My Ex when he discovered his 'ex-girlfriend' did not ever consider him to be her boyfriend.

The candidate grew up in a wealthy family and became accustomed to expensive flights to beautiful locations and first-rate hotels, all while clad in Versace.

It led him to appear on Channel 5's Rich Kids Go Skint in 2019.

Briefly moving to a West London home on the show with Queen, Shawn and their two-year-old Simone, Navid learnt about life with little cash to spare.

Queen, meanwhile was shocked to learn that Navid, who normally has a maid, did not know how to use a colander.

Queen joked: "I must say I have never met anyone that doesn’t know what a colander is, I’ll try and not baffle him with science later when it gets to the rice cooker and grater."

It seems that Navid learned a lot from the experience, particularly when Queen informed him how the tragic Grenfell disaster had affected the community.

Navid said: "Hearing that kind of story and knowing how many people suffered from that. Words can’t really describe the emotion that someone will be going through.

"I’ve really learned a lot, like cleaning the plates was a bit difficult for me but cooking I really enjoyed."
