Michelle Louise Faye Dewberry is a British reality television contestant and businesswoman from Hull, East Riding of Yorkshire. Dewberry first came into the public eye in 2006 as the winner of the second series of British television programme The Apprentice.
Dewberry cited her reasons for entering The Apprentice as being for the experience and not the money.
In 2006, Dewberry beat off competition from over 15,000 people to become the winner of the second British series of reality TV show The Apprentice, in which candidates compete for a £100,000-a-year job working for business magnate Lord Alan Sugar. Dewberry's quiet but steely demeanour led to her being nicknamed the "Silent Assassin", and "Steel Pixie" by the British press.
After The Apprentice
In July 2006, The Sun newspaper revealed that she was pregnant by Syed Ahmed, a fellow contestant on The Apprentice, with whom she had formed a romantic relationship. After being admitted to hospital with stomach pains in August 2006, Dewberry was told that she had lost the baby.
Dewberry has subsequently ceased working for Lord Sugar, and runs her own consultancy: Michelle Dewberry Ltd (MDL) and www.chiconomise.com. In total, she worked for him for 11 months.
In 2007, she released an autobiography, Anything is Possible.
In December 2009, Dewberry joined the magazine Business Matters as a monthly columnist alongside Duncan Bannatyne.
In April 2017, Dewberry made an appearance on BBC's Question Time.
She is a host of The Pledge on Sky.
In 2007, Dewberry ran the London Marathon in 4 h 33 min 20 s to raise funds and awareness for the NSPCC. She completed the 2009 London Marathon in 4 h 26 min 23 s and is currently in training to compete in the MS Challenger 4 day event to again raise funds for the NSPCC.
