Former Apprentice contestant Thomas Skinner is set to appear at Watford Market this week.

The TV star and businessman will be at the free "Market Lates" evening on Friday, May 3, to sign copies of his recently released book Graft: How to Smash Life.

In Graft, Skinner shares his story growing up in Romford and working on market stalls, before he shot to fame in 2019 on the 15th series of The Apprentice and was ‘fired’ in week nine.

The “professional wheeler-dealer” previously pitched up at Watford market in 2022 and St Albans the following year selling toys and other products.

This Friday is the first of three Market Lates events throughout the year, with further dates planned for August 2 and November 1.

It will host a pop-up bar with craft beer from 6pm to 10pm, soundtracked to live music from Soraya Ray and the Studio 6 Band, and Mr Skinner will be signing books from 7pm.

There will also be Caribbean, Korean and Asian street food stalls along with many others.
