Browse biogs A-Z
Maj Nagra was a 28-year-old business development manager living in Coventry when he entered The Apprentice series 5.

He was fired from The Apprentice in week 3 by Sir Alan Sugar, who felt that he was a 'passenger'

Maj Nagra, who was born in Coventry, was expelled from school for wayward behaviour, but went on to gain a BSc in Computer Science.

Maj had attended Sidney Stringer school and had admitted to being a bit of a bully and not listening to his mother and father, before he turned his life around.

Before The Apprentice, Maj, worked with youth centres and charities as well as running his own car hire business.

In the first programme of The Apprentice, Maj told team leader, Howard: "You don't want to lose in the first task - not to girls, not that I'm sexist or anything."

By the time of The Apprentice, Maj Nagra had been married for 4 or 5 years. On Radio 5 Live, Maj described it as a 'semi-arranged' marriage, because he had met his wife-to-be in Pakistan and he had told his father he liked her, who responded by saying that he would see what he could do.
