Gregory Ebbs is best known to television viewers as one of the most popular candidates in BBC1’s The Apprentice (Series 17, 2023) which took him to the Caribbean island of Antigua, saw him make Bao Buns, and produce a pre-school cartoon before ultimately being fired by Lord Alan Sugar in the famous boardroom.
He was one of the breakout stars of the show in the tabloids too with readers intrigued to learn about the eccentric British-Thai entrepreneur’s past job as a cannon firer and guide in Malta. Gregory’s role saw him participate in the ceremonial firing of a 32 pounder gun, and lead guided tours of Malta’s 28,000sqm long Lascaris War Room tunnels.
Gregory’s impressively varied CV goes far beyond being a self-professed James Bond of the business world with his first love actually being history with a degree in International Politics and Military History. He is a specialist in Victorian military uniforms, takes part in historic First World War reenactments, and is an avid researcher of historical artefacts and militaria collections including for English Heritage.
He is the founder and creator of Raven Yard Antiques, an e-commerce website which offers people the opportunity to sell their collectables online with over 900 items and £50,000 worth of stock up for sale to bargain hunters.
Gregory is currently a Liberal Democrat’s councillor for Whitchurch which has seen him become a public representative for 10,100 people in Shropshire and secure over £10,000 for youth provision.
He is a skilled public speaker with experience of giving lectures and creating audio-visual presentations and is founder of Question Time Society modelled after the famous TV politics debating show. His hobbies include Hiking, Latin dancing, Scuba diving and being a Foodie.
