She set up an online pyjama store called My Christmas Pyjamas in 2018. 

According to her Instagram account, she will be launching a new site, My Everyday Pyjamas, in January 2022. 

It is not the first time Kathryn has appeared on reality television.

She made her debut on TV screens in 2017 on The Island with Bear Grylls. 

After going on the show, Kathryn, also nicknamed Kaggy, said; “I absolutely love a challenge, and I don’t think I could challenge myself any more than this.”

This year, Kaggy is looking forward to a new challenge: “My dreams in my head are absolutely huge and I believe I can achieve them.”

She describes herself as ambitious, kind, often "savage", and says she is on The Apprentice to win and not make friends. 

The Apprentice airs on BBC One and iPlayer at 9pm on Thursday, January 6.
