Sarah-Jayne - who owns a ladies’ fashion shop and works at Chesterfield-based furniture business Mantle&Clark - says she believes her loyalty is one of her best qualities.

She says: “I am the definition of a girl boss – I get things done and make things happen.”

She added she believes it is ‘vital’ to be determined and strong-willed in business and says never letting her guard down will help her win.

Sarah-Jayne is the third young businessperson from north Derbyshire to compete on the programme.

The former Brookfield student follows in the footsteps of Chesterfield property developer James Hill and Dronfield fashion designer Jessica Cunningham - both of whom made it to the latter stages of the competition.
