Karren Brady, the vice-chairman of West Ham football club and Lord Sugar's sidekick on The Apprentice, has hinted at a future career in politics.
In an interview with the Radio Times published on Tuesday, Brady said "anything I did in politics would centre around getting people into work".
The Conservative supporting Brady said she had not been approached by the Tories to work for them but would "like to know what some of the problems are to help them find the solutions".
"It's very easy to let politics pass you by and think that you can't make a difference. If everyone had the same attitude then things would never change," she said.
She added: "I think if you have a job - it doesn't matter what kind of job - it's a step on the ladder, getting up in the morning, having a purpose in life - and there are too many people unemployed."
In a 2011 interview with the Evening Standard Brady, 44, said she would "do anything for my country" and that politics became "more appealing" to her the older she got.
Brady, who was made managing director of Birmingham City football club at the age of 23, starred as Lord Sugar's assistant in the sixth series of BBC's The Apprentice programme.
