The Apprentices Amy Anzel has tragic connection to two Coronation Street stars

The Apprentice 2022 candidate Amy Anzel has a rather poignant connection to two Coronation Street stars.

One of the 15 remaining candidates hoping to impress Lord Sugar with her business acumen, American Amy has already been making waves with her can-do attitude to the directing task – with many of her fellow candidates feeling rubbed up the wrong way by her taking the lead.

As though she didn’t already have enough famous connections – starring in US reality shows including The Bachelor, and launching her own Hollywood career – Amy also has plenty of links to stars across the pond in Blighty.

Amy appeared at Coronation Street star Victoria Ekanoye’s Bye Bye Boobies fundraiser event ahead of her double mastectomy.

The actress – who played Angie Appleton on the cobbles – was diagnosed with breast cancer just months after welcoming her first child last year.

And to raise funds for charities including Prevent Breast Cancer and Sickle Cell Care Manchester, Victoria held a star-studded event in the city as she planned for her surgery.

Speaking about her decision to go for the surgery, Victoria listed her son Theo as one of the main reasons for opting for the radical surgery, explaining on Loose Women: “How can I not do everything I can in my power to be here for him?

"We'll do everything we can to give him the best life."

Amy was snapped alongside Victoria at the fundraiser, looking glam in a sequinned gold top and leather pants as she posed with an arm around the actress, who looked similarly stunning in a white jumpsuit fringed with lace.

Captioning her snap, Amy posted: "What an honour to support the gorgeous @victoriaekanoye for her #ByeBye boobies fundraiser."

However, Victoria wasn’t the only Corrie star to appear at the event, as Strictly Come Dancing’s Katie McGlynn was also in attendance and took a quick selfie with Amy.

Katie opted for a tiny white strapless number with angelic white feathers over her boobs, as Amy leaned in close for them both to beam at the camera.

Amy penned on Instagram: "Throwback to my lovely trip to Manchester @katiexmcglynn."

Katie, who played Sinead Tinker on the cobbles, was involved in a tragic cancer storyline of her own, after her character was diagnosed with cervical cancer while pregnant with her son, Bertie.

Though Bertie survived, Sinead died – leaving her partner Daniel devastated.

The Apprentice continues on Thursday at 9pm on BBC One.
