APPRENTICE star Linda Plant appears to have been caught fibbing about her age on a dating app — despite roasting the BBC show’s candidates for lying on their CVs.
The tough-talking businesswoman is one of the interviewers drafted in by Sir Alan Sugar to grill his final five wannabes.
Linda’s company profile confirms she was born in January 1952 — making her 69.
But on a dating profile on Bumble, she has knocked six years off her age to be listed as 63.
Linda is loved by viewers but feared by candidates for her no-nonsense Apprentice interviews.
She recently said: “When I come across as the Queen of Mean, yes, I am mean with Alan’s money.
“There’s £250,000 going into an idea so we have to make sure the investment is as secure as it can be.
“I don’t like waffle and I don’t like bull***t.”
Linda runs a successful property development and interior design company.
In a video tutorial on CVs — posted this year — she told how she advised an applicant: “The first thing you should do is own your age.
"Be proud of your age. You’re 62, you’ve got experience.”
A source said: “It’s ironic that Linda champions the importance of honesty — especially where age is concerned — then fudges her own numbers.”
