Baroness Karren Brady approached for Strictly Come Dancing

aroness Karren Brady gets asked to do "Strictly Come Dancing" "every year".

The "Apprentice" star has admitted she has been approached by bosses of the BBC Latin and ballroom dance competition numerous times, and always turns them down as she isn't interested in appearing on any reality TV programmes.

Speaking to the Sunday People newspaper, she said: "I got asked to a cooking show when I can't even cook! I've been asked to "Strictly" a number of times. Every year actually."

It isn't the first time the 48-year-old businesswoman has admitted her dislike for reality TV, as she previously admitted she would rather stay at home with her husband Paul Peschisolido and their children Sophia, 21, and Paulo, 19, than land herself a role in the showbiz world.

She said: "I'm very normal. You won't see any of us appearing on reality TV - I'd rather eat my own eyeballs."

However, that's not to say she doesn't enjoy appearing on TV on "The Apprentice", as she insists she "loves every aspect" of the cutthroat business show.

She added: "I like every aspect of doing "The Apprentice". Alan sets the tasks in some of the most fabulous locations.

"We get access to some really interesting places, though you're running from one place to the next and it's always exhausting.

"There's a lot of dashing around and, yes, you will see my trainers on screen - I've given up wearing high heels.

"It's a bit of an endurance test but I get on with it.

"Our days are very long and I start out with good intentions, thinking, "I'm going to get up early and do my hair", but it doesn't turn out like that.

"I don't have a make-up person following me around, not at all."
